San Francisco: Press of H.S. Crocker for Automobile Blue Book Co., 1917.
Softcover. Very good. Distributed by the Northern California Hotel Association. Single sheet, 27 x 15 inches, folding to 9 x 5 inches. Chip at one edge, some small splits at intersections; about very good. One side taken up by a road map of California (provided by the Automobile Blue Book Publishing Co.) with insets of Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, and the Bay Area. One the other side are b/w photos of major California attractions and activities (e.g., missions, Lick Observatory, Stanford, big trees, Yosemite scenes, beaches); a list of members of the Northern California Hotel Association, and an ad for the Hotel Dickinson in Ben Lomond. Cover art signed "M.L. 1917" This may be the work of Maurice Logan (1886-1977), one of San Francisco's best-known commercial artists. However, all other travel brochures by Logan that we have seen are signed with his full name.
