Cloth; small front cover medallion. Illustrations. 500 copies printed by Patrick Reagh. From the Preface: "This biography of Romualdo Pacheco, Jr., 1831-1899, explains in detail why he was called the most successful Spanish-speaking native son of Ca lifornia. He was the State of California's first and only Hispanic governor, the first California Hispanic elected to Congress and the first to be named a diplomat." "Romualdo Pacheco was the product of two epochs and two very different cultures. He spent his childhood in bucolic Mexican California, and his adult years spanned the turbulent transition to American rule. To those who knew him, he was always a gentleman and dependable friend. Political adversaries found him tough and resolute, bu t compassionate. In an age of rampant corruption and venal politicians Pacheco stood out as a man of both public and private integrity." 209 pages, plus colophon. Bookseller Inventory # 3345
