"Portola and Costanso...arrived in Mexico City on August 10, 1770, bringing the first news of the occupation of Monterey. The government therefore lost very little time in having the occupation report printed. It is the earliest known printed piece, since Torquemada's MONARCHIA INDIANA, to contain any information regarding what is now known as Upper California....About half a dozen copies of the Folio issue are known, and probably only four copies of the 4to edition" - Wagner. "Although Wagner would not commit himself on the question of priority, never having discovered any contemporary statement as to which was printed first, Cowan considered the folio issue to be the first. Dr. George P. Hammond presents a conclusive solution to the problem in NOTICIAS DE CALIFORNIA (Book Club of California, 1958): On the basis of two corrections made in the quarto of spelling errors in the folio, he assigned priority to the folio" - Howell. "The first published account of the first permanent settlement in California, the ESTRACTO being the preliminary report of the Portola expedition" - Streeter sale (folio issue). ZAMORANO 80, 35.
