GUIDE BOOK OF SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA ISSUED BY THE EXCURSION AND INFORMATION BUREAU ... [cover title]. San Diego: Excursion and Information Bureau, n.d. . 14.5x8.8 cm, pp. [1-2] 3-32, illustrations, light sea green wrappers printed in black, stapled. First edition. The first of at least two editions of this rare promotional booklet with useful lists of social services (church directory, "secret societies," etc.), hotels and rooming houses, tourist attractions and tours, and advertisements for local businesses and tourist services. Unfortunately, this copy lacks two leaves (pp. 16/17 and 21/22) -- one of which is present, but clipped at edges). Apparently not in Rocq. OCLC reports two copies, University of California, Berkeley, and University of California, San Diego. The text is available online but, although defective, this rare original copy is worth preserving. (#167688).
No statement of printing.
