  • Title: History :: The Zamorano Club
    Descriptive info: History of the Zamorano Club.. The seeds of what was to become the Zamorano Club of Los Angeles were first planted at a dinner held on 19 October 1927, in the University Club, then located at 614 South Hope Street.. The minutes of that pioneer gathering listed the following attendees: A.. Gaylord Beaman (insurance), Garner A.. Beckett (cement manufacturer), William W.. Clary (attorney), Arthur M.. Ellis (attorney), and W.. Irving Way (bookman).. The latter was the catalytic agent, a fact which has been well established.. The initial minutes noted that these men had gathered for dinner and discussed generally the possibilities of forming a group to promote interest in artistic printing and beautiful books.. From this germinal idea the Zamorano Club was born.. At this same meeting, the minutes record the first embryonic club action: A joint letter of appreciation to Mr.. Porter Garnett, of the Laboratory Press (Pittsburgh), was indited, expressing appreciation of the ideals of the Press and the recently issued Book of the Press.. A month later, November 16, the same group assembled once again at the University Club, joined by Robert O.. Schad, Curator of Rare Books, Henry E.. Huntington Library.. At this dinner the group discussed the possibility of establishing a club and the need for club quarters.. The first program followed.. Arthur M.. Ellis exhibited books from Horace Walpole s Strawberry Hill Press and William W.. Clary gave the first formal talk, speaking on Benjamin Franklin s place in the history of printing in the United States.. The following month, on 14 December, the initial group gathered a third time at the University Club.. Their number was augmented by Charles K.. Adams, an official with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company; Gregg Anderson, then on the staff of the Huntington Library; Robert E.. Cowan, Librarian of William Andrews Clark Library; A.. Bruce McCallister, printer in the firm of Young McCallister; and John C.. Treanor, cement manufacturer.. The program consisted of a display and discussion of various examples of printing.. The possibility of a comparable exhibit at the Los Angeles Public Library was also suggested.. However, the important business of this meeting was the appointment of a committee to (1) compile [a] list of persons who might be interested in carrying out the general idea of this group; (2) determine limitations to be observed by it; (3) develop a practical plan of activity and to investigate.. [the] possibility of holding an exhibition [on printing].. Ellis was appointed chairman; committee members included McCallister, Schad, Treanor, and Way.. This committee shaped what can rightly be called the founding meeting of the Zamorano Club, held at the University Club on the evening of 25 January 1928.. Present on that occasion were Charles K.. Adams, Garner A.. Beckett, William W.. Clary, Arthur M.. Ellis, A.. Bruce McCallister, Robert O.. Schad, and John C.. Treanor.. What transpired that night, as recorded in the minutes, was as follows:.. This was the meeting at which the ________ Book Club was formed, and the proceedings will be set down in some detail.. The aims of the Club were agreed to be as follows:.. Primarily to establish contact and encourage exchange of thought among its members, who shall be men interested in Fine Books.. To encourage the arts of the book.. To gather and maintain a collection of books and other objects relating to or illustrating the art of the book.. To produce occasionally such books or pamphlets as will promote the aims of the Club.. To establish and maintain suitable quarters for the Club.. The participants then  ...   Club membership.. At the next scheduled meeting, 1 March, dinner was taken at the University Club, whereupon the members adjourned to the Bradbury Building, Room 446, the first Club room.. On that occasion, members viewed an exhibit of the work of Porter Garnett at the Laboratory Press.. At this same meeting another tradition was established: the invitation of guests.. Among other actions taken that night by the membership, the most important was the appointment of Robert O.. Schad and John C.. Treanor to select [a] name for the Club.. At the March 29 meeting, Schad and Treanor suggested that the Club be named for Agustín Vicente Zamorano, the first known printer in California, operating a press in Monterey in 1834.. The minutes further reveal that the press and a small amount of type were brought to California by [Governor José Bautista] Figueroa in 1833.. Mr.. [Robert E.. ] Cowan gave the members further information regarding this press which was subsequently operated by Santiago Aguilar, by [Mariano Guadalupe] Vallejo at Sonoma, and by José de la Rosa.. A number of broadsides and eleven small books were published by the press in the early years of its operation five books by Zamorano, two books by Vallejo at Sonoma, and four books by José de la Rosa in 1843.. Thus, within three months of its official founding, the nameless organization became the Zamorano Club.. Its history has been continuous ever since.. On.. 19.. March 1930 the Club took up occupancy of a suite, Rooms 484 and 485, at the Alexandria Hotel on Fifth and Broadway.. The suite was completely remodeled for Club purposes and was beautifully paneled in soft gray wood.. But it was a short-lived occupancy because the Alexandria fell victim to the Depression.. On.. 25.. April 1934, new Club quarters were rented on the fourth floor of the University Club.. This proved a boon, for dinner could also be taken on the same premises.. Unfortunately, these Club quarters had to be relinquished after the February 1, 1967, meeting, and the University Club building was razed.. New accommodations were found at the Biltmore Hotel on Grand and Fifth Streets, where the Club had met for the first time on 1 March.. The last meeting at the Biltmore was held on 7 April 1971, since the Club was offered quarters in the Treasure Room in the Doheny Memorial Library on the campus of the University of Southern California.. Dinners were taken in the Faculty Club.. Toward the end of the Club s tenure at USC the Faculty Club was used for both dining and the meeting.. The Club s subsequent meeting places have been as follows (no meetings take place from July through September):.. Peppermill Restaurant, Pasadena: 2 October 1991 through 1 May 1996.. Altadena Town Country Club: 5 June 1996 through 4 June 1997.. University Club, Pasadena: 1 October 1997 through 3 June 1998.. McCormick Schmick s Restaurant, Pasadena: 7 October 1998 through 4 April 2001.. University Club, Pasadena: 2 May 2001 through 3 December 2008.. Women s City Club of Pasadena: 7 January 2009-present.. In May 1991, coincident with the move from USC, it was decided to put the Club s book collection in storage at Occidental College Library.. Subsequently the Board of Governors decided to dispose of the collection, and the books were accordingly sold at Pacific Book Auction Galleries (sale 180, 15 February 1999).. The proceeds from the sale were placed in the Club s endowment fund.. Doyce B.. Nunis, Jr.. Click.. here.. for a list of Zamorano Club Presidents.. All contents 2008-2013 The Zamorano Club..

  • Title: Publications :: The Zamorano Club
    Descriptive info: SELECTED PUBLICATIONS OF THE ZAMORANO CLUB OF LOS ANGELES.. Compiled and annotated by Laura Stalker.. 1933.. Ellis memorial edition of the journal maps of Cave J.. Couts.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1933.. Cave Johnson Couts (1821-1874), a Tennessee-born army officer, was in command of a military escort assigned to Amiel W.. Whipple s Boundary Commission charged with defining the new border between the United States and Mexico following the Mexican-American War.. His diary, now in the Bancroft Library at Berkeley, includes an account of this expedition, of which Arthur Ellis publication represents the first published version.. Orange County historian William McPherson provided notes and other editorial services.. Arthur Ellis (1875-1932) was a founding member and president of the Zamorano Club.. This small book was the last item to issue from his private press; in fact, Ellis died after completing the body of the text but before the volume could be bound and issued.. The original titlepage, with Ellis imprint and dated 1932, bore the title.. From San Diego to the Colorado in 1849: The Journal and Maps of Cave J.. In 1933 some of the sheets from this edition were reissued under the Zamorano Club imprint and with additional front matter as a memorial to Ellis.. 1934.. Don.. Agustin V.. Zamorano: statesman, soldier, craftsman, and California s first printer.. By George L.. Harding.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1934.. Colophon: Printed by Bruce McCallister, Los Angeles, 1934.. Within six years of its founding, the Zamorano Club produced a major work of scholarship that has not been superseded as the definitive biography of the Club s namesake.. In the words of a contemporary reviewer, Mr.. Harding s story of the life of Zamorano sparkles, is alive, entertaining, and makes of what had been heretofore nothing but a shadowy figure in outline, a real flesh and blood man about who the history of California revolves from 1825 until his return to Mexico in 1838.. Printing historian and businessman George L.. Harding (1893-1976) was a leading figure in the Zamorano and Roxburghe Clubs, the Book Club of California, and the California Historical Society.. His personal collection now forms the core of the Edward C.. Kemble Collection on Western Printing and Publishing at the California Historical Society, and he published many articles and pamphlets on California printing.. In his introduction to the Zamorano biography, Harding gives full credit to Henry R.. Wagner for his inspiration and assistance.. Wagner not only encouraged Harding to expand his study of Zamorano s printing to a full-length biography; he also tracked down documents, reviewed translations, read successive drafts, and shepherded the finished manuscript through the publication process.. The 325 copies of the 1934 edition were handsomely printed by Zamorano member Bruce McCallister; 175 were made available to the public via an arrangement with the J.. W.. Robinson Department Store in downtown Los Angeles.. George Harding s biography was reprinted in 1976 by the Arno Press, and in 2003 Arthur H.. Clark issued a second printing with new prefatory material.. In 2010 the Zamorano Club paid tribute to Harding s accomplishment by including.. Don Agustin V.. Zamorano.. in.. , its new listing of distinguished California titles.. 1938.. Gossip from the sixteenth century.. By William Alvin Bowen.. Part I.. Los Angeles, California: The Zamorano Club, 1938.. Colophon: One hundred and twenty five copies printed by the Bowen Press.. William Bowen (1877-1937), Los Angeles attorney and Zamorano Club member, intended this to be the first of a series of volumes comprising imaginary dialogues among historical figures such as Luther, Erasmus, and Cellini.. However, he died in 1937 after preparing the text of Part I for the printer.. One hundred twenty-five copies were issued by the Club the following year, prefaced by a sketch of the author s life.. The romantics, 1801-1820: an exhibition of books and autograph letters, from the collection of Frank J.. Hogan.. With a prologue an epilogue.. Los Angeles, 1938.. Colophon: 100 copies printed by The Ward Ritchie Press of which 50 are reserved for members of The Zamorano Club.. Washington-based lawyer Francis Joseph Hogan (1877-1944) made a national reputation representing clients such as Theodore Roosevelt, Andrew Mellon, Evelyn Walsh McLain, and, most notably, Edward L.. Doheny, for whom he secured acquittal in the Teapot Dome case.. In 1904 he founded Hogan Hartson, now the oldest major law firm in the nation s capital.. Hogan collected American and British literary high spots throughout the thirties, with a special emphasis on association and inscribed copies.. His legal business frequently brought him to Los Angeles, where he enjoyed displaying selected treasures to his fellow Zamorano Club members.. On March 3, 1937, following one of the Club s regular lunches, he hosted a small exhibition of books and manuscripts, accompanied by this small catalogue written and printed by Ward Ritchie.. All of the major Romantics are represented, many by distinguished association copies of their works.. High spots were a copy of the 1798 Bristol edition of.. Lyrical Ballads.. , and a Keats shrine , which included a copy of the 1817.. Poems.. inscribed by Keats to Wordsworth, as well as an autograph letter from Keats to Fanny Brawne.. Hogan s collection was dispersed after his death at a series of four sales held at Parke-Bernet Galleries in 1945-1946.. 1941.. Robert Browning, 1812-1889: an essay.. by Robert Ernest Cowan.. Colophon: For members of the Zamorano Club 100 copies of this essay were printed by Robin Park and Mary Treanor at the Green Horn Press, Los Angeles.. Cowan (1862-1942) is best known as the author of.. A bibliography of the history of California and the Pacific West, 1510-1906.. , the first major bibliography of Californiana (Zamorano 80, #23).. He was employed as librarian by William Andrews Clark, Jr.. from 1919 to 1933, and from the time of his 1926 arrival in Los Angeles until his death played a leading role in the book life of the city.. In his many lectures and publications he concentrated on California and the West; there is nothing in this pamphlet to explain the occasion for this brief excursion into Victorian literature.. The brief history of the Green Horn Press may be found on pages 75-76 of another Club publication,.. A bookman s view of Los Angeles.. (1961).. Both of the young proprietors studied printing with Ward Ritchie, and Mary Treanor was the daughter of Zamorano founding member John Treanor.. Using the Green Horn Press imprint, she and her partner also produced a separate issue of 140 copies of the Browning essay.. 1942.. Bullion to books: fifty years of business and pleasure.. By Henry R.. Wagner.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1942.. Henry Raup Wagner (1862-1957) was a moving force in the Zamorano Club from the time of his admission in 1931/32 until his death.. He inspired or contributed to a long list of Club keepsakes, pamphlets, and newsletter articles, wrote many of the.. entries, and first suggested the creation of an index to Bancroft s.. History of California,.. a task that absorbed the energies of many members for decades.. The Club s most substantial monument to Wagner is perhaps this 370-page memoir, in which he reviews the events of his long and varied life from his Yale Law School graduation in 1886 to his successful international career as a mining executive, to his even more distinguished career as historian, bibliographer, and collector.. The latter chapters of.. Bullion to books.. (of which 300 copies were printed at the Ward Ritchie Press) brim with the kind of facts and anecdotes that fascinate book collectors.. Wagner s pattern of collecting was unusual.. He formed successive collections in order to support specific historical or bibliographical publications, then sold or donated the books and moved on to the next project.. Important Wagnerian collections may be found at the Huntington, Yale, the Bancroft, and many other research libraries, and the most complete list of his published writings (.. The.. published writings of Henry R.. (1988) by Ruth Frey Axe) has nearly 200 entries.. Wagner lived another fifteen years after the publication of.. Bullion to books.. and was a productive scholar to the end of his life.. His influence set the course for the Zamorano Club s growing identification with the history of California and the West, and led directly to the creation of its most famous publication.. 1945.. The Zamorano 80: a selection of distinguished California books made by members of the Zamorano Club.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1945.. Colophon: The Zamorano Eighty.. Published May, 1945, in a limited edition of five hundred copies.. Produced under the supervision of Bruce McCallister.. This copy is number ___.. The creation, content, and history of the Club s signature publication is described in detail.. elsewhere on this website.. It is largely through this bibliography that the Zamorano Club is known to the world of collectors, booksellers, and librarians.. It has inspired two reprints (Kraus Reprint Company, 1969; Martino Publishing Company, 1999) as well as a plethora of exhibitions, catalogues, and above all collectors.. 1951.. Islands of books.. Lawrence Clark Powell.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1951.. Verso of half-title: 150 copies printed for members of The Zamorano Club.. Among the ranks of Zamoranans, Lawrence Clark Powell is Henry Wagner s chief rival for the title of most prolific author.. In his brief preface to this, his first volume of collected essays, Powell explains that most of the pieces first appeared as articles in.. Hoja Volante,.. written at the behest of editor W.. Robinson, who wished for more literary content.. The fifteen essays range from personal reminiscence to favorite authors Lawrence and Whitman to Rabelais and Casanova to the California landscape and its influence on a regional literature.. Of the 1000 copies printed by Ward Ritchie, 150 appeared with the Zamorano imprint; the rest bore the imprint of Ritchie s press.. In 1991 Dawson s Book Shop produced a softcover edition with a new preface by the author.. 1952.. Sixty years of book collecting.. Henry R.. The Zamorano Club, 1952.. Colophon: 100 copies for the Zamorano Club of Los Angeles and 100 copies for the Roxburghe Club of San Francisco printed by the Ward Ritchie Press February 1952.. This tall slim volume is an interesting companion to.. Bullion to books,.. Wagner s leisurely memoir of 1942.. Sixty years.. gives a brief account of each of the author s more important collections, arranged in chronological order, starting with the books on the history of metallurgy that he began to collect in 1892.. Many of the facts and anecdotes may be found in the earlier book, but there is some new material.. Wagner s final notes include his remarkable revelation that while at least 100,000 volumes passed through his hands during his collecting career, he never owned more than one or two thousand books at any one time.. Ruth Frey Axe, in her bibliography of Wagner s publications, states that in addition to the 200 copies mentioned in the colophon, thirty additional copies were printed for presentation by the author.. 1953.. Al bello secso.. A translation by Miss Haydee Noya of the Henry E.. Huntington Library of the first original poetry known to have been written and printed within the territory of California; together with an introduction by Henry R.. Wagner of the Zamorano Club, in whose honor, and for his ninety-first birthday anniversary, this poem is herewith being reprinted for private distribution.. The Zamorano Club, 1953.. Colophon: 75 copies printed for members of the Zamorano Club by Caroline Anderson, Joseph Simon, and Ward Ritchie, commenced September 1947, completed September 1953.. Ritchie, in his.. Bookmen their brothels.. (1970), tells the story of the printing of this unique Zamorano imprint, how it was begun for Wagner s 85th birthday, partially completed, then left unfinished for another six years.. The tall narrow quarto comprises a facsimile frontispiece of this rather ephemeral broadside poem, followed by Wagner s introduction in which he speculates on its authorship, and the translation itself, by Miss Haydee Noya of the Huntington s Manuscripts Department.. According to Wagner, the original from which the facsimile was made was discovered in a scrapbook in Los Angeles about ten years ago.. In 1947 it was in the possession of Thomas W.. Streeter, who allowed the Club to reproduce it in facsimile.. At the Streeter sale it was purchased by the San Francisco book dealer Warren Howell, who sold it to the Beinecke Library, its present owner, in 1971.. 1954.. The alchemy of books, and other essays and addresses on books writers.. by Lawrence Clark Powell.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club.. Powell s second volume of essays, following close on the heels of.. , is longer, more varied, and somewhat less personal than its predecessor.. Its title essay was originally given as an address before the American Library Association in 1952, and many of the others were reprinted from a variety of bookish and professional journals.. The nineteen pieces are divided into three sections.. Bookman in Britain deals with his experiences while travelling on a Guggenheim Fellowship in the U.. K.. Reading and Collecting and People, Books, and Places combine travel, reading, and philosophy with personal reminiscence.. One hundred copies were printed by Ward Ritchie; a larger trade edition appeared with the imprint of the Ward Ritchie Press.. A Chinese printing manual, 1776.. Translated from the Chinese with notes and introduction by Richard C.. Rudolph.. Los Angeles: Printed by the Ward Ritchie Press for members of the Zamorano Club, 1954.. Colophon: For the Zamorano Club.. 100 copies have been designed by Ward Ritchie and printed in Los Angeles by Anderson, Ritchie Simon with the facsimile pages reproduced in collotype by the Meriden Gravure Company.. In 1948, Richard Rudolph, chair of UCLA s department of Oriental languages, travelled to China to buy books for UCLA s library.. While there, he happened upon Jin Jian s manual on the manufacture and use of moveable wooden type, composed while the author was Superintendent of the Imperial Printing Office, and hitherto unavailable in English translation, and largely unknown to Western scholars.. Rudolph purchased a copy for UCLA and made it the centerpiece of his 1951 lecture to the Zamorano Club.. The enthusiastic response of various Club members led him to translate the entire text, and to write the introduction and accompanying notes.. The publication of this small volume was a joint project of the Typophiles and the Zamorano Club.. 100 copies were printed with the Zamorano Club imprint; another 350 copies, with variant imprint and colophon, appeared as Typophile Chap Book XXIX.. Western wayfaring: routes of exploration and trade in the American Southwest.. By J.. Gregg Layne, with an introduction by Phil Townsend Hanna and maps by Lowell Butler.. Los Angeles: Automobile Club of Southern California, 1954.. Colophon: One hundred copies of this book by J.. Gregg Layne were specially printed and bound for the Zamorano Club of Los Angeles.. Joseph Gregg Layne (1885-1952), an authority on California history and bibliographer of Californiana, was best known for his service as president and director  ...   Trust Company, which gave him a deep knowledge of local archives and culminated in his most significant publications,.. Land in California.. (1948) and.. Maps of Los Angeles.. (1966).. The bibliography is prefaced by a biographical sketch, primarily based on conversations with Robinson himself.. WorldCat records indicate that there were four issues, with the largest number bearing the imprint of the Ward Ritchie Press.. In addition to the special Zamorano copies mentioned in the colophon, two smaller groups of copies carry the imprints of the Southwest Museum and the Title Insurance and Trust Company.. 1972.. The letters of Alfred Robinson to the De la Guerra family of Santa Barbara, 1834-1873.. Translated and annotated by Maynard Geiger, O.. F.. M.. Colophon: 200 copies were designed by Robert A.. Weinstein at The Ward Ritchie Press and printed on Ivory Linweave Text paper in Waverley and Perpetua types for the tenth joint Roxburghe-Zamorano Club meeting in San Francisco, September 9-10, 1972.. This edition includes a facsimile bound in of an original 4 page letter of Alfred Robinson.. One goal of the Zamorano Club has been to make available in limited editions previously unpublished documents relating to early California history.. Alfred Robinson s letters to his adopted family form part of the De la Guerra archive at the Santa Barbara Mission, where Zamorano member Maynard Geiger was archivist for almost forty years.. Robinson (1806-1895) was an American businessman who married into the important De la Guerra family and is principally known for his.. Life in California.. (1846), the first book in English on California written by a resident.. Robinson s business letters were published in the.. California Historical Society Quarterly.. This small collection of personal letters, addressed by Robinson to members of his wife s family and dating from 1834 to 1873, round out our picture of the life and times of this early immigrant.. An additional 300 copies were printed for public sale, and may be identified by a variant colophon and the absence of a four-page facsimile of letters in Robinson s hand.. 1974.. c.. opybook from the hand of Agustin V.. George L.. Roby Wentz.. Ray Nash.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1974.. Colophon: 250 copies printed by Ward Ritchie.. The writing manual reproduced in facsimile was apparently created by Zamorano sometime between 1838 and 1840 for the use of his friend Don Ignacio Coronel, who presided over the first genuine school in Los Angeles.. Coronel s books and papers eventually passed to the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, and from there to the Los Angeles County Museum.. It was a member of the Museum staff who drew Harding s attention to the copybook in 1953.. In his introduction to this facsimile edition Harding gives these details of how the publication of the copybook finally came about, 21 years later, and under the auspices of the Zamorano Club.. Zamorano member Roby Wentz contributed a brief biographical sketch of Coronel, and Ray Nash, professor of graphic arts at Dartmouth College, provided an essay on Zamorano s calligraphic style.. These essays are followed by the seven pages of the facsimile.. 1976.. The first school book printed in California with an exact facsimile reproduction of the unique copy in the Huntington Library.. With an introduction by Carey S.. Bliss.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1976.. Colophon: 200 copies printed for the members of the Roxburghe Club by their friends of the Zamorano Club on the occasion of their meeting in September 1976 in San Francisco.. Printed by Richard J.. Hoffman and John Urabec at California State University, Los Angeles, on their all-rag hand made paper.. Two years after the publication of the.. Copybook.. the Club produced another Zamorano-related publication, in this case an attractive facsimile of a small volume printed at his press.. In 1976 the Huntington s copy of.. Tablas para los ni.. ños que empiezan a contar.. was the only one known to scholars; since then another copy (lacking the title page and final two leaves) has been added to the Bancroft Library s collections and yet another was purchased by the A.. Smiley Library in 2002.. In his introduction Carey Bliss used typographical evidence to establish the volume s priority as the first California schoolbook, and reviews the provenance of the Huntington s copy.. An English translation follows, and the tiny facsimile itself is tucked into a pocket inside the front cover.. Another facsimile of.. ños.. was created in 1991, printed and distributed as a single sheet, and designed to be folded and assembled as a project for children.. 1978.. The Zamorano Club: the first half century, 1928-1978.. By George E.. Fullerton, Carey S.. Bliss, Tyrus G.. Harmsen, Edwin H.. Carpenter.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1978.. Colophon: 200 copies printed by Richard J.. Hoffman, Van Nuys, California.. Bound by Bela Blau, Los Angeles.. This volume, published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Club, is an essential reference for anyone interested in Zamorano history.. At its core is a list of keepsakes and other publications produced by the Club and its members.. This list, which is admirably accurate and complete, was the long-term project of George Fullerton (1898-1977), who unfortunately did not live to see its appearance in print.. Also valuable is Tyrus Harmsen s history of the Club from the year of its founding to 1978.. This was Harmsen s second overview of Zamorano history; the first appeared in 1961 s.. The 1978 volume also contains a complete list of Zamorano members, arranged chronologically, an introduction by George Fullerton, and a prefatory note by Doyce B.. 1980.. California s pictorial letter sheets, 1849-1869.. Colophon: Two hundred copies of this offering have been printed by The Castle Press for the Zamorano Club for distribution to members of the Zamorano Club and the Roxburghe Club on the occasion of their joint meeting in San Francisco, September 13-14, 1980.. This attractive portfolio is based on the collection of Zamorano member Henry Clifford (1910-1994), best known as the second person ever to acquire every title in the.. Clifford s collecting interests centered on Western Americana and ranged from postal ephemera to Indian artifacts to guns, as well as printed books.. In the brief introductory pamphlet he reviews the literature of the field, and then suggests a project to publish facsimile reproductions of all known letter sheets, of which he estimates there are between 350 and 400.. Thirty facsimiles are tucked into the portfolio, twenty single and ten double.. The pictorial letter sheet its history and significance receives a much more thorough treatment in Zamorano member Gary Kurutz introduction to the catalogue for the 1994 sale of Clifford s collection.. Entitled Images of El Dorado: The California Pictorial Letter Sheet , his essay traces the development of this peculiarly Californian phenomenon, pointing out the surprising fact that most surviving examples show no signs of use.. The 1994 catalogue is the most recent substantial contribution to the literature of the California letter sheet, and Clifford s dream of a comprehensive facsimile edition remains a desideratum.. 1988.. Zamorano, architect.. Norman Neuerburg.. Los Angeles, California: The Zamorano Club, 1988.. Colophon: Printed at the Bellerophon Press, Santa Barbara, September, 1988.. A pale blue folder, the color of old-fashioned sugar paper, in the Bancroft Library contains a simply bound group of documents and drawings relating to the design and construction of a civic building in Mexican Monterey.. The lengthiest of the documents and four of the five drawings are by the hand of Agustin V.. Thus begins Norman Neuerburg s thorough and scholarly assessment of a group of Zamorano source materials that were unknown to George Harding at the time he wrote his biography.. In 1833-34, while serving as secretary to Governor José Figueroa, Zamorano was asked to revise existing plans for a territorial capitol.. The resulting drawings are the earliest professionally drawn building plans surviving from California and one of them is the earliest design for an interior.. In this 21-page pamphlet the drawings are reproduced, along with transcriptions and translations of related documents.. The commentary by architectural historian Neuerburg explicates these materials and sets them in context.. With the publication of this pamphlet the Zamorano Club added another chapter to its ongoing celebration of the life and achievements of its namesake.. 1992.. The Zamorano Club programs, 1928-1991.. Los Angeles: The Zamorano Club, 1992.. Colophon: Published in a limited edition of 200 copies on the occasion of the 21st Joint Meeting of the Roxburghe and Zamorano Clubs in San Francisco, September 19 and 20, 1992.. Designed and set by Old Mill Graphics, South Pasadena; printed by the House of Printing, Pasadena; bound by Kater-Crafts Bookbinders, Pico Rivera.. Cover designed by Jean Tolford, using.. fleurons.. executed by the late Richard Hoffman.. Cover printed by Regis Graden.. Publication coordinated by Hugh C.. Tolford.. 1978 saw the publication of a list of Zamorano publications that had appeared up to that time.. In 1992, the Club archive was once again mined to produce a complete list of programs presented before the Club, from the founding meeting on January 25, 1928 to the final meeting of 1991.. In his foreword, Monsignor Francis Weber calculates that a total of 624 persons had over the years spoken at 522 meetings, and identifies the most frequent speakers.. This volume is illustrated with reproductions of meeting announcements, traditionally printed in letterpress and often collected for the sake of their attractive designs..

  • Title: The Zamorano Club
    Descriptive info: Jump to the list.. Jump to full facsimile text (PDF).. The Zamorano 80: A Selection of Distinguished California Books Made by Members of the Zamorano Club.. Los Angeles: Zamorano Club, 1945.. At the time of its founding in 1928, the purpose of the Zamorano Club was to establish contact and encourage exchange of thought among its members, who shall be men interested in Fine Books.. To gather and maintain a collection of books and other objects relating to or illustrating the arts of the book.. During the Club s first year, all Club meetings were devoted to the printing arts.. However, change was in the wind.. In 1928, Leslie Bliss, Librarian of the Huntington Library in San Marino, was one of the first individuals admitted to the club after its founding.. He was followed in 1929 by Phil Townsend Hanna, editor of.. Westways,.. and by Robert Cowan, the great bibliographer of the history of California.. In 1931 Henry Wagner was admitted to the Club.. All these men were great western historians, and they began to create a new branch of interest in the Zamorano Club.. It happened this way.. Henry Wagner had moved to San Francisco in 1918.. He had worked for the Guggenheims at the American Smelting and Refining Company.. He had fulfilled his career aims and chosen to retire to do what he loved: book collecting and bibliography.. One of Wagner s first actions on settling in California was to determine if there was a California Historical Society.. He found that there was one, but that it was dormant.. Wagner persuaded C.. Templeton Crocker, heir to the Crocker fortune of the Big Four fame and a serious book collector, to underwrite the society s revival.. Wagner s real interest was to create a society quarterly, and he promptly dragged his friend, Robert Cowan, onto the Publication Committee for the soon to be published quarterly.. In 1931, this publication committee decided to write a short piece entitled Twenty Rarest and Most Important Works Dealing with the History of California.. Henry Wagner and Robert Cowan, both members of the publications committee, and Leslie Bliss from the Huntington Library were asked to submit nominations.. Each made a selection of twenty titles, though there was some overlap.. Their selections were published in Volume 10 number 1 (March 1931) of the.. Quarterly.. of the California Historical Society.. Phil Hanna responded to this article quickly.. To the initial selections (and there were some overlaps among the three contributors) he added his own twenty-five.. While Wagner, Cowan and Bliss had emphasized rarity, Hanna selected a number of books that were within the reach of the average reader.. He then wrote a book on the combined selections called.. Libros Californianos,.. published by Jake Zeitlin s Primavera Press that same year.. The book featured an extended essay on California literature, justifying the selections he had made.. It was published in an edition of 1,000, and Hanna had fifty additional copies done in a special binding which he gave as a keepsake to the members of the Zamorano Club in November 1931.. This was the Club s twenty-eighth keepsake, and the second relating to California history.. The interest in California history and books important in the development of the state continued to ferment in the thirties.. During that decade, J.. Gregg Lane (1930), and Robert Cleland (1934) joined the Club.. By the end of the decade it appears that Phil Hanna had encouraged the Club to publish a book listing the 100 most important books that a serious collector of Californiana would have in his library.. The Club agreed, and set up a committee made up of Cleland, Cowan, Hanna, Layne, and Wagner.. Between 1940 and the spring of 1942, each member submitted his own list of 100 entries.. When they were compared, it was found that fifty-two entries were on all the lists.. The committee discussed and debated on this long list of titles and were able to cobble together a selection of slightly over 100 titles on which all members agreed.. By that time, Robert Cowan was in the hospital with a terminal illness.. The list was given to him for review.. Cowan blessed this list and added three additional titles.. He died on May 25, 1942.. The list of slightly more than 100 items plus Cowan s three was allowed to age during the balance of 1942.. It is believed that Cowan s.. Bibliography of the History of California and the Pacific West.. was then added to the list as a tribute to this renowned scholar.. While all seemed well, the committee began to have second thoughts.. A new round of debates began, and the committee found they could no longer unanimously agree on all the titles.. As a compromise, the committee lowered its sights to the eighty titles on which all members did agree.. These were memorialized in the Zamorano 80.. Robert Cleland resigned from the committee during this period.. Apparently he was too deeply involved in writing his monumental histories at this time and could not devote energy to the project.. With Cowan s death and Cleland s resignation, the committee needed additional hands to complete the next phase of the project-writing the.. précis.. of each book on the list.. Robert Woods, who joined the Club in 1942, was added to the committee.. Woods was a well-known collector of Western Americana and made major contributions to the final product.. Homer Crotty, who was Club president in 1943-44, joined in to write the review of Hoffman s.. Reports of Land Cases.. and Brown s.. Report of the Debates.. All the write-ups were essentially complete by November 1943.. At the Club s December 1943 meeting the Committee presented its list and book reviews for the eighty books to the Board of Governors..
