With an original watercolor inscription/illustration, SIGNED and dated (1967) by the author/artist to a blank leaf. Hardcover. Inked number to endsheet, else near fine, in grey cloth, gilt-stamped with title, author and a silhouette of an LA dwelling with palm tree; decorated endpapers; in age-toned dust jacket that shows a number of short edge tears, tiny nicks, and light wear.
The artist's memories of this famous district of Old L.A. (home to the legendary Angel's Flight) rendered in Politi's spare text with evocative, idiosyncratic paintings. A very sweet copy, inscribed in ink and charmingly embellished with pastel colors.
