A bookseller in San Francisco throughout the gold rush, Hubert Howe Bancroft (1832-1918) rose to turn into the guy who could outline the early historical past of California and the West. growing what he known as a “history factory,” he assembled an unlimited library of over sixty thousand books, maps, letters, and records; employed scribes to repeat fabric in inner most palms; hired interviewers to catch the stories of early Spanish and Mexican settlers; and released a number of volumes offered through the state through 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 trendy reader and but referring to the historical past of the West because it used to be taking place--and because it was once being recorded--Kim Bancroft’s variation of Literary Industries is a pleasure to read.
