The decade was marked by frequent changes in Mexican-appointed governors, local upraisings against established authority and the secularization of the missions. Faxon Dean Atherton, a young man from New England, vividly recorded much of that process of change in his diary. Only 1550 copies printed. 1830 Foldout map of Alta California. 246 pp. Notes, Bibliography and Index. Blue-grey cloth with gilt design on front and back and gilt lettering on spine.
