A bookseller in San Francisco in the course of the gold rush, Hubert Howe Bancroft (1832-1918) rose to develop into the fellow who could outline the early heritage of California and the West. developing what he referred to as a “history factory,” he assembled an unlimited library of over sixty thousand books, maps, letters, and files; employed scribes to repeat fabric in inner most fingers; hired interviewers to catch the stories of early Spanish and Mexican settlers; and released a number of volumes offered through the kingdom by way of his subscription brokers. In 1890 he released an eight-hundred-page autobiography, aptly entitled Literary Industries. Literary Industries flickers with the exuberance of nineteenth-century California and introduces us to a guy of significant complexity and wit. Edited for the fashionable reader and but pertaining to the historical past of the West because it used to be taking place--and because it used to be being recorded--Kim Bancroft’s version of Literary Industries is a pleasure to read.
