Quarto. 476p. Index of names and places. This edition was issued two years after the end of the war and commemorated Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. who was born in San Marino in 1885 and grew up when there was a very small population. Many of his associates in his youth are also given biographies in the book. There is a brief note whitewashing the Japanese evacuation, photographs of the armies marching at the end of World War II. Pasadena the book notes just passed the 100,000 mark in terms of population. Bound in highly decorative embossed black leather, lettering yellow, spine lettering yellow. Front inner hinge just starting but strong. Very nice. Bookseller Inventory #
