Vintage Los Angeles Book, 1984 City of Many Dreams Book, Decorative Blue & White Book, First English Edition Book, Collectible Picture Book

$156.00 $195.00

The 1984 Los Angeles: A City of Many Dreams book by Edmund Swinglehurst is in good condition. The dust jacket is with the book. However, there are some wear places on the edges and spine of the dust jacket. There are no bad odors or water damages on this book. The inside seems to be free from marks. However, we did not check every page.

This is the First English Edition.

This is the hardback version with the dust jacket.

This book was a purposeful, timely, and important work in 1984.

We believe one of the main purposes of this book was simply getting the world more prepared for the city that hosted the 1984 Summer Olympics - Los Angeles. The reason we note this importance comes from the fact that it is printed and bound in Barcelona Spain. Also, the involvement of companies from England further reveals the importance of this work at the time. While there were many books covering the actual Olympics at the time, this book provided the world a glimpse of the rest of the city.

The front and back inside covers are very clean. There is a short tear on the back near the outer edge at the bottom. Also, there are some very faint age or discolored spots on some of the edges and pages. They are hard to notice unless it is put under a light and inspected.

The book underneath the jacket is in great condition. There are only a few rub spots on the tips and edges. The dust jacket has done a great job keeping this book in great condition.

The decorative possibilities for this book about Los Angeles are many. The book would be a wonderful table decoration. Also, the growing library should certainly have a full-color book about Los Angeles. The previous resident and the relocated family member would both appreciate this book as a gift.

The collector will appreciate this book for its great condition and beautiful design. In addition, the theme sets this book apart making it very desirable.

The book weighs 49.1 oz.

The book measures 12.75” wide x 11 1/8” tall x .75” thick.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may appear to change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that we do not enhance all of our pictures. Sometimes the first picture is enhanced for lighting purposes, etc. Therefore, the other pictures should be in very close agreement with the color.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description of an item you are interested in please contact me.

***Please note that since we offer free shipping in the United States, the actual first Shipping costs incurred due to the transaction from the seller to the buyer will be deducted from any returned and/or refundable purchases with the exception of missing items, damages from shipping, listing, and/or condition errors, along with full compliance of Etsy return and refund standards. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction.
