DEFENDER OF THE GATE: HISTORY of THE PRESIDIO of SAN FRANCISCO 1846-1995 Illustrated
DEFENDER OF THE GATE: THE PRESIDIO OF SAN FRANCISCO A HISTORY FROM 1846 TO 1995, by Edwin N. Thompson. HISTORIC RESOURCE STUDY, VOLUME I.
Published by National Park Service, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, California, July 1997.
Softcovers, 8.5x11 inches, 475 pages. Illustrated throughout with b&w photos and maps.
VERY GOOD condition, the covers have a corner crease and some small spots, otherwise the spine is smooth and the inner pages are tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked.
One of the most comprehensive and interesting histories of The Presidio of San Francisco that I have seen.
This original first edition published by the National Park Service is quite hard-to-find.
