Business Directory of the Pacific States and Territories for 1878, Containing Names, Business, and Address, of Merchants, Manufacturers, and Professional Men; County, City, State, Territorial, and Federal Officers; and Notaries Public, of the Principal Towns of California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Arizona and British Columbia.

Mckinney, L.M.

San Francisco: L.M. McKenney, Publisher, 1878.

By 1878, gold fever had subsided, and the commercial activity in the West was expanding rapidly. The 1870 census showed over half a million people in California; but with just 15,000 in Idaho, that territory was still sparsely populated. This directory lists business names throughout the states and territories, and is one of the first to cover the entire area west of the Rockies. It includes a large section just for San Francisco. Many display ads, cardstock insert printed in red & blue for Pacific Business College. 894 pages.

Good to fair condition, left in unsophisticated state. Both joints exposed, binding shaken, loss to cloth at head and tail of spine. Pages are clean and bright, binding of the textblock is firm.

This is a scarce directory, not held by many institutions, and rarely offered for sale. An invaluable tool for historical & genealogical research. Measures 8-3/4" x 6" and has 894 pages.

Never thought I'd be in the same room as a first edition of The Tarot of the Bohemians, let alone hold one. Ironically, words aren't enough, but I truly thank you!
