ANNUAL REPORT of California SURVEYOR-GENERAL 1863 Post Gold Rush County Reports. TITLE: Annual Report of the Surveyor-General of the State of California for The Year 1862. Houghton, Surveyor-General of California, et al. PUBLISHER: Sacramento, California: Benjamin P. DESCRIPTION: 148 pages, folding chart. CONDITION NOTES: VERY GOOD. Some peeling to spine. Pages clean, except for a couple of pages with light foxing. Chart properly folded with a small stub tear. Want to see the mother of all land rushes underway? Read the reports from the various California county surveyors touting their bounty, counting their cattle, and bickering over boundaries (in the two appendices). A report to Leland Stanford, Governor of California in the 12th year of statehood, compiled from correspondence by county surveyors and assessors, as well as state civil engineers. State and County Boundaries. Canals, and Drainage of the Sacramento Valley. An additional report on Irrigation by Civil Engineer Calvin Brown serves to detail the growing realization of the state’s unique climate, and its unusual dependence on seasonal water flow for agricultural abundance in the absence of a cold winter. Reports on Railway construction and Flood mitigation round out the statewide portion. Inally, two appendices include reports by each county’s surveyor and assessor giving insight into the state’s resources and the degree to which agriculture has progressed and survey/boundary issues have been resolved… Very readable and fascinating. Each county official was required by state law to report, but some submitted a short, very subjective descriptive letter, and others submitted full tables of statistics. Others, such as Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Bernardino submitted no letters, though some of their data appears on statewide tabulations. San Diego’s data appears nowhere. Is this a wartime measure, or is it a matter of insignificant population or agricultural yield that keep the Southern counties out of the Surveyor-General’s report?

Flavorite Brand VINTAGE San Fernando, California Orange Crate Label 1930 Genuine
This uncommon vintage 1930 orange crate label depicts two fairies with butterfly wings injecting flavor into oranges growing in a grove of trees at nighttime against a backdrop of fireflies. “Flavorite” is obviously a combination of “flavor” and “favorite”. Some of the new labels that emerged in the Advertising Age of California Orange Crate Labels (1920 – 1935) reflected the Art Deco design movement. At its best, this art treatment created a feeling of modern elegance. On labels of the 1920s and early 1930s, it was combined with innovative color treatments made possible because of the development of new printing ink formulations and sophisticated printing registration techniques. The result was a succession of attractive new label designs such as Flavorite. Through its use of stylized imagery Flavorite successfully conveys its advertising message by using an unusual design theme and color treatment in conjunction with a prominent display of oranges as an integral part of the design.

The etching is unframed and measures: 11.5″ x 9.75″. Landscape with mountain and river measures 10.25″ x 7″. The condition has signs of aging and yellowing but intact. Millier’Arthur Miller': An influential California etcher, painter and arts writer, Arthur Millier moved from England to Los Angeles in 1908. His first artistic training took place at the Art Students League, Los Angeles. He then served with the American Army in France during World War One. At the end of the war (1918), Arthur Millier completed his studies at the California School of Fine Arts, San Francisco. During the following years he taught art and etching techniques at such institutions as the Chouinard School, the Otis Art Institute, University of Southern California and the Pasadena Art Institute. Arthur Millier also was the long time art editor and critic for the Los Angeles Times. From this important position, Arthur Millier was among the first to promote the growth of regional California art. His association with the California Scene Painters (also called the’California Group’) helped to establish the national reputations of such California artists as Emil Kosa, Phil Dike, Millard Sheets, Barse Miller and Rex Brandt. Arthur Millier’s first etchings and drypoints date from around 1920. They depict the back streets and the poor peoples of San Francisco. Within several years, however, he had turned primarily to the stately California landscape etchings and engravings for which he is now most highly regarded. Such fine work gained him prizes from the California Society of Etchers in both 1922 and 1928. Millier was a full member of the Chicago Society of Etchers, California Society of Etchers, Print Makers’ Society of California and the California Art Club. Today his prints are included in the permanent collections of such major institutions as the Los Angeles County Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. ITEM TYPE – Vintage. COLOR – Black, White.

Roosevelt, and her scenic and flower oil paintings grace the walls of lovely homes and art galleries all over the Western world. A painter of the California and Southwestern desert, Orpha Klinker had a long list of accomplishments as a Los Angeles artist, and was also a recognized portrait, historical and pioneer genre painter. She was of German and English heritage and was born in Fairfield, Iowa, and then lived briefly on a 360 acre farm near New Sharon. Growing up in that area, she loved the desert country and took an interest in the history and traditions of California. She had early art talent, which was encouraged by her mother. Orpha began her career cutting silhouettes for the May Company in Los Angeles when she was 12 years old, and then went into furniture ad art with her work appearing in many newspaper advertisements. She studied at the U. Art School and Cannon Art School and with Paul Lauritz and Anna Althea Hills, her first private teacher. She also became an art teacher, did silhouettes of movie stars, and created “Betty Bobbs” paper dolls. She attended the Julian and Colarossi Academies in Paris, went to New York and did illustration, and then to Philadelphia where she worked for the Ladies Home Journal. Returning to the West, she pursued through her art her combined interests in the desert and history. Her family became a part of this history, owning the Klinker Building, regarded as the first skyscraper Los Angeles. She did a series of portraits and talks titled “Speaking of Pioneers, ” and her research led her far afield into deserts of California, Utah, and Arizona where she painted the Grand Canyon. One of her portraits was of the last of the “49ers, ” Emanuel Speegle. She also did a series of historical scenes on china plates, now collectors’ items and in 1939 designed the official seal of Los Angeles county. She did etchings of the desert, her chief source of inspiration. She was a member of the California Art Club and the Women Painters of the West. Her studio was in her home atop the Hollywood Hills, and she worked for preservation causes including saving the stone home of Charles Lummis, noted writer and founder of the Southwest Museum.
