Los Angeles has a diverse collection of historic resources, reflecting both the legacy of notable architects and the variety of its inhabitants. The city has broken new round in its approach to historic preservation, identifying and protecting the places of social and cultural meaning.

Preserving Los Angeles illuminates a Los Angeles that may  surprise even longtime Angelenos—highlighting dozens of lesser-known buildings, neighborhoods, and places in every corner of the city. Preserving Los Angeles is an  authoritative chronicle of urban transformation, a guide for citizens and urban practitioners alike who hope to preserve the unique culture of their own cities. Bernstein’s  informative text is richly illustrated with more than 300 full-color images by Schafer, a nationally acclaimed architectural photographer.

Suggested retail price is $50. Four books are available to each of the four highest bidders .
