MANUSCRIPT CATTLE BRAND REGISTRATIONS FROM BAJA CALIFORNIA].
[Baja California]. 1862-1867. - 60 leaves. Stitched folio and quarto manuscript leaves. Some edges chipped and worn, with minor text loss. Light dampstaining and foxing. Good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A collection of fifty three manuscript registrations of cattle brand designs for ranches in the Frontera Norte region of Baja California, south of the United States. Each contains a large pen drawing of the design to be registered and the name of rancher to whom it would belong, and is signed by the regional president, Ceclio Zerega from 1862 to 1866, and Luis Sosa in 1867. This manuscript brand book predates any printed brand books in the American West, and strikingly demonstrates the importance of the branding system to Western ranching in the mid-19th century.
