First edition, tight and attractive. Taylor (1895-1984) was an ahead-of-his-time agricultural economist who pioneered the formal study of immigrant labor, working with and then marrying famed documentary photographer Dorothea Lange. He published 13 scholarly monographs on this beginning in 1928, of which this volume is the seventh contribution -- Volume 7, No. 2 in the "University of California Publications in Economics" series. It was followed by a "Migration Statistics" volume in 1933. Very uncommon and in sharp, bright condition, the foldout map pristine.
