    Hi, are there any plans to digitize “City of missions, San Antonio, Texas”? I’d love to see it. My great uncle J. Morgan Macom was the illustrator. He died at age 29, so there are not a lot of works surviving of his. Please advise. Thanks, John M. Macom III

      We do have an ongoing project to digitize San Antonio travel guides and souvenir books, which this title does loosely fit into, although it is more of a pictorial history. I will add it to our queue, but due to limitations on staff time, it is likely to be a few months before it appears online. When it does, it will be under “Rare Books” at

      In the meantime, this worldcat record will show you some of the other institutions that hold this copy, in case any of them are close enough to you to visit:
