About The Book
A bookseller in San Francisco during the Gold Rush, Hubert Howe Bancroft (1832 — 1918) rose to become the man who would define the early history of California and the West. Creating what he called a “history factory,” he assembled a vast library of over sixty thousand books, maps, letters, and documents; hired scribes to copy material in private hands; employed interviewers to capture the memories of early Spanish and Mexican settlers; and published multiple volumes sold throughout the country by his subscription agents.
In 1890 Bancroft published an 800-page autobiography. Recognizing that its length had put this classic out of reach to all but the most dedicated, editor Kim Bancroft created an abridged edition that introduces the modern reader to the remarkable person who was her great-great-grandfather. Edited for the modern reader and yet relating the history of the West as it was taking place — and as it was being recorded — Kim Bancroft’s edition of LITERARY INDUSTRIES is a joy to read. It sparkles with the exuberance of nineteenth-century California and introduces us to a man of great complexity and wit.
