MILL VALLEY BEAUTIFUL [cover title]. N.p., n.d. 16.7x24.2 cm (oblong octavo), 20 plates, each with printed glassine paper guard, original brown pictorial wrappers, printed in black and light green, string-tied. First edition. A scarce Mill Valley souvenir view book, published circa 1900-1910. "Mill Valley, located at the base of Mount Tamalpais, was first planned in the late 1880s and incorporated in 1900. The city was named for a sawmill built by John Reed, to cut lumber harvested from the surrounding area. Once the area was logged, the land was divided into parcels and sold as home sites, which at first were primarily Mill Valley, California, vacation residences" (Wikipedia). OCLC lists three copies, at the California State Library, the Marin County Free Library, and the Mill Valley Public Library. Not in Rocq (1970). Mild soiling and wear to wrappers, some tanning and foxing to glassine guards and plate margins, a very good copy. (#166860).
