About this Item

Oblong quarto. 64pp. Original color photographic wraps of an aerial view of the Hotel. "As one reaches the apogee of the San Diego - Coronado bay Bridge and looks straight ahead toward the pacific Ocean, a structure resembling a castle dominates the view of the shoreline. The building gives the appearance of having grown there, rather than having been constructed. This is the hotel del Coronado. Generally considered the last of the extravagantly conceived seaside hotels, it stands as a monument to the past with its turrets, tall cupolas, hand-carved wooden pillars, and Victorian gingerbread. Though the charms and splendor of Hotel del Coronado have set a pace among resort hotels for more than three-quarters of a century, the hotel's position of leadership grows more commanding every year. Today, more than ever, the hotel offers as full a spectrum of modern resort conveniences and recreation facilities as any vacationer could desire. The history of the del is a fascinating story, one which should be preserved for all time." Profusely illustrated with b/w reproductions of photographs, some drawings and a plan. Minor creasing and scuffing on wraps. Very slight age toning to outer edges of interior pages. Overall very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 26747
