FRANCIS B. GRAVES 

Francis B. Graves, one of the early 
members of the C. L. A. and a well- 
known figure in California library circles 
for many years, died in Alameda Decem- 
ber 1, 1933, at the age of seventy. He 
began his library work in what is now 
the Mechanics-Mercantile Library, San 



Francisco, February 5, 1885, but left to 
become librarian in Alameda November 3, 
1899. He returned to the Mechanics- 
Mercantile Library December 1, 1907, 
and held the position of librarian there 
continuously until his death exactly 
twenty-six years later. Mr. Graves was 
said to have known personally every book 
in the large Mechanics-Mercantile collec- 
tion and in his quiet, scholarly but 
friendly way he was happy to give help 
to all who sought it from him. His loyal 
and appreciative friends are grieved at 
the passing of a librarian and a gentle- 
man of "the old school."

BOARD OF LIBRARY EXAMINERS 



EVERETT R. PERRY 

The California library world was 
shocked late in October to learn of the 
serious illness and then the death of 
Everett R. Perry. As he had always 
looked well and strong and was only in 
his fifty-eighth year it was to be ex- 
pected that he would still have many 
years of vital service to give to his chosen 
profession. It is with a great sense of 
loss, then, that we record Mr. Perry's 
death and the end of his connection with 
the Los Angeles Public Library of which 



he had been librarian since 1911, the 
Board of Library Examiners, on which 
he served continuously from the same 
date, and the California Librai-y Asso- 
ciation in which he always took an 
active part and whose president he was 
in 1916-17. Although his actual work 
in these organizations is over, his influ- 
ence on all of them has left an indelible 
impression. His constant and vigorous 
interest in library affairs and his energy 
in translating this interest into effective 
action have given him a high place in 
California library annals.

QUARTERLY NOTES 

Miss Gillis went to Chicago October 10 
to attend the American Library Associa- 
tion conference. She was on the pro- 
gram of the County Library Section and 
also of the National Association of State 
Libraries, and presided at the round table 
meeting on work with the blind. Miss 
Gillis attended the annual joint meeting 
of the Northern and Southern sections of 
the California School Library Association 
in Fresno October 28-29, and spoke in- 
formally at one of the sessions. On 
November 4 Miss Gillis attended the 
meeting of the 8-9 District of the Cali- 
fornia Library Association at Chico and 
was the main speaker at the afternoon 
session. At the 5th District meeting at 
Jackson on November 17 she told of her 
impressions of the A. L. A. November 
20 she spoke at the meeting of the North- 
ern District of the California Federa- 
tion of Women's Clubs in San Francisco 
and from there went to Los Angeles to 
attend to library business in that vicinity 
for the remainder of the week. On De- 
cember 8 Miss Gillis and Miss Girdner, 
librarian of Galileo High School, San 
Francisco, represented the California 
Library Association at a meeting called 
by the State Department of Education to 
discuss a Charter for Public Education. 

Miss Hitt was in the southern part of 
the state November 2—7 and was the offi- 
cial representative of the State Library 
at the funeral of Mr. Everett R. Perry 
on November 1. On November 2 she at- 



tended the C. L. A. Executive Committee 
meeting, and on November 4 she repre- 
sented Miss Gillis at the meeting of the 
6th District held in La Jolla. She pre- 
sided at a meeting of the Certification 
Committee of the C. L. A. at Los Angeles 
on November 6 and 7. 

The State Library was represented at 
the 5th District meeting by Miss Gillis, 
Miss Hitt, Miss Mumm, Miss Smith, 
Mrs. Minarik, Miss Tilden, Miss Look, 
Miss Taylor, Miss Sherwood and Miss 
Lyndall Harmon. 

On November 8 Miss Margaret Nix 
was appointed junior clerk to take the 
place of Mrs. Lorine Kinz who resigned. 
Miss Jean Luppen, who was graduated 
from the University of Oregon last sum- 
mer and who expects to attend a gradu- 
ate school of librarianship next year, has 
been doing practice work during the 
quarter in the Reference Section. 

On December 22 eighteen women and 
one man were put to work in the State 
Library on Civil Works Service projects. 
They are engaged in filing, typing, re- 
pairing books and cleaning shelves. 

Two staff meetings were held during 
the quarter, one on October 9 and the 
other on October 25. On the latter date 
Miss Gillis gave the staff an account of 
her trip to Chicago and of the A. L. A. 
conference. For various reasons the staff 
decided to omit the Hallowe'en party and 
also the annual Christmas party. Staff

January 1, 1934, are as follows : Presi- 
dent, Miss Beulah Mumm ; Vice Presi- 
dent, Miss Lily Tilden ; Secretary-Treas- 
urer, Mrs. Edith Morris ; Executive Com-

PRINTS SECTION 

Bertha S. Taylor, Librarian. 

The Prints Section has been established 
only since the new State Library building- 
was occupied in August, 1928. In it are 
kept the prints acquired by the State Li- 
brary for several years past and now for 
the first time suitably housed and dis- 
played. In display cases can be shown 
about fifty prints at a time and exhibits 
are constantly maintained. Visitors are 
invited. 

Six prints were added during the last 
quarter, making the total number of 
prints 3146.

of Los Angeles "was shown in the Prints 
Room during- October and the first two 
weeks of November. During the rest of 
November the exhibit was taken from the 
State Library's collection and consisted 
of prints of animals, birds and fish by 
various artists and in all mediums. 

During December the Library had its 
fifth annual exhibition from the Print 
Makers Society of California. 

There were 854 visitors to the Prints 
Room during these three months. 

Two talks on prints were made by the 
Prints Librarian during this quarter. 

BOOKS FOR THE BLIND SECTION 

Mabel R. Gillis, in charge. 

Embossed books in the various types 
are sent to any blind resident in Cali- 
fornia upon application. Circular and 
finding list, with call slip postal, will be 
sent on request. Writing appliances and 
games for the blind are loaned as samples 
to those wishing to buy such articles, so 
that the different kinds can be tried be- 
fore they are ordered. Addresses of firms 
supplying all articles loaned will be fur- 
nished on request. 

Books sent to individuals from an in- 
stitution distributing embossed literature 
are carried free through the mails. 

Embossed catalogs of the earlier mate- 
rial in American Braille, Moon and New 
York point are available. They will be 
loaned to borrowers wishing them for use 
in book selection. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type in 
the Library up to October 1, 1926, and 
one including all books in Braille up to 
April 1, 1927, will be sent to anyone re- 
questing it. 

The State Library will be glad to have 
borrowers who care to do so write any 
letters or requests for books to the Li- 
brary in Braille or New York point. 

Attention of the borrowers is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
brary should always be placed inside 
mail boxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to 
send post card receipts or requests to the 
Library inside of books. When books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up 
one by one. Therefore, a request sent in 
that way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent in 
the mail separately. 

Books may be kept one month. At the 
end of that period they will be renewed 
on request unless the demand for them is 
so great that renewal is not feasible. 

At the 1931 session of Congress an an- 
nual appropriation of $100,000 was made 
for providing books for adult blind. This 
work is handled bv the Library of Con- 
gress with the books printed at or pur- 
chased from various printing houses. 



The California State Library has been 
designated as one of the centers to receive 
the books printed from this appropriation. 
Many titles have been received and are 
reported currently in the list of books 
added with the note that they are pro- 
vided by the United States government 
through the Library of Congress. 

The first book was loaned June 13, 
1905. There are now 3347 blind bor- 
rowers, 31 borrowers having been added 
during October, November and Decem- 
ber. Total accessions are 35,086, as fol- 
lows : New York point books 2936 ; New 
York point music 188 ; American Braille

Home Teaching 

Kate M. Foley, home teacher of the 
blind, is at the Argyle Apartments, 146 
McAllister street, San Francisco, every 
Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Her 
telephone number is Market 0690. She 
gives lessons regularly in the bay region 
and the Santa Clara Valley, with occa- 
sional trips- to other parts of the State. 
Catharine J. Morrison, home teacher of 
the blind, is at the Los Angeles County 
Free Library, Broadway Annex, Hall of 
Records, the first Wednesday of each 
month. Her home address is 951 S. Ken- 
more ave., Los Angeles. Her telephone 
number is Fitzroy 3251. She gives les- 
sons regularly in Los- Angeles and vi- 
cinity and makes occasional trips to San 
Diego. 

From October 1 to December 31, home 
teachers gave 571 lessons in the homes of 
the blind and 11 lessons in libraries. 
They made 213 visits and calls in connec- 
tion with the work for purposes other 
than giving lessons, and have received 
75 visits in connection with the work. 

During the quarter Miss Foley and 
Miss Morrison spent 316 hours on cor- 
respondence 1 and preparing lessons. They 



wrote 431 letters and 260 postals and 
received 303 letters and 101 postals. 
They also answered and made 559 tele- 
phone calls. They made 4 addresses. 
Miss Foley, as usual, taught the writing 
of Braille to classes of seeing people in 
Oakland, in Alameda and in San Fran- 
cisco. She spent 11 hours in proof read- 
ing hand copied books. The various other 
activities in connection with the work of 
the home teachers can not easily be tabu- 
lated.

QUARTERLY NOTES 

Miss Gillis went to Marysville January 
3 to meet with officers and commitees of 
the Parent-Teacher Association who are 
interested in the promotion and welfare 
of libraries. On January 25 she spoke 
io a large luncheon meeting of the Fre- 
mont Presbyterian Church Women's Club 
in Sacramento on Californiana in the 
State Library. The following week a 
group of women who had heard this 
talk visited the State Library and made 
a complete tour of the building. On Feb- 
ruary 3 Miss Gillis was a guest at the 
Book Lovers Dinner held in San Fran- 
cisco in connection with the annual Book 
Fair. The Sutro Branch participated in 
the Book Fair, exhibiting two cases of 
rare books. On February 12 Miss Gillis 
was the speaker at an afternoon meeting 
of the Sacramento D. A. R. On Feb- 
ruary 13 she spoke twice in Napa, at a 
meeting of the County Federation of 
Women's Clubs in the afternoon, and at 
the American Association of University 
Women in the evening. Miss Gillis and 
Mrs. Henshall represented the State Li- 
brary at the meeting of the Second-Third 
District C. L. A. at Asilomar on Febru- 
ary 17. Miss Gillis was one of the 
speakers on this program. On the 27th 
of February she spoke again in Sacra- 
mento at the T. M. C. A. Luncheon Club, 
describing the services of the State Li- 
brary. Miss Gillis was also a speaker 
at the Fourth District C. L. A. meeting 
held in Sonora March 3, and on March 
13 she spoke before the Fortnightly Club 
at Winters. Miss Gillis spent March 
26 and 27 in Tehama County where she 
spoke at a dinner meeting of the Kiwanis 



Club in Red Bluff on the 26th and on the 
27th at a meeting of the County Federa- 
tion of Women's Clubs at Los Robles in 
the afternoon and at the Lions Club in

tees in Los Angeles on the 26th and 27th. 

Miss Foley, our San Francisco home 
teacher of the blind, went to New York in 
March to attend a meeting of an im- 
portant national committee on uniform 
type for the blind. Miss Foley was 
honored by being chosen chairman of 
this committee which will probably have 
another meeting later in the year. 

On January 8 Dale Lapham resigned 
to accept a position in the Department 
of Public Works, and William Calvert 
was appointed to succeed him as page in 
the Government Documents Section. 
Betty McElroy and Marilene Dobson 
worked for three weeks in February as 
temporary pages and Mrs. Lena Webber 
was employed for about ten days in 
March as temporary stenographer-clerk. 
Miss Helen Clayton was married on Jan- 
uary 19 to Harold Ristow. 

At a staff meeting on February 19 
Miss Helen Bruner told something about 
the Sutro Branch, its collection and its 
work. Two staff committees were ap- 
p< inted for the current year : Properties 
— Mrs. Flora Miehie, Miss Margaret Den- 
nison and Harold Carlson ; Service — Miss 
Rachel Look, Mrs. Marguerite Duggins 
and William Lyons. 

At the request of a number of members 
of the staff a Book Review Section was 
organized in March. At the first meeting 
held at S.30 a.m. on March 7 Miss Wenzel 
reviewed several new California titles. 
At the next meeting Miss Grace Taylor, 
Librarian of the Sacramento City Li- 
brary, was the speaker. 

At a meeting of the library staff mem- 
bers of the State Employees Association 
in January Miss Lily Tilden was elected 
Group Committee member to represent 
the library and was later chosen to act 
as Chairman of the Group C Committee.

books, the statutes of other states, the 
United States, Great Britain, Canada, 
Australia and certain other foreign coun- 
tries, and briefs of counsel in cases de- 
cided in the California Supreme and 
Appellate courts. State officers are en- 
titled to borrow books and private indi- 
viduals are accorded the same privilege 
upon presentation of a request signed by 
a Supreme, Appellate or Superior Judge, 
or other State officer. Books may be 
kept three weeks, and will be once re- 
newed for two weeks. All books are sub- 
ject to recall, if required by a State 
officer, or if, in the opinion of the Li- 
brarian, a recall is fair and expedient. 

In addition to special service to mem- 
bers of the Legislature, information on 
the laws of California and other states 
and countries is given on inquiry from 
libraries and individuals.

CALIFORNIA SECTION 

Caroline Wenzel, Supervising Li- 
brarian. 

The California Section aims to have a 
thoroughly good collection of books on the 
history and description, resources and 
industries of the State, as well as the 
works of California authors in all depart- 
ments of literature. These are made ac- 
cessible by means of a card catalog. Full 
names and biographical sketches of Cali- 
fornia authors, artists, musicians, pio- 
neers and early settlers are being secured, 
together with their photographs. The col- 
lection of bound periodicals is quite large. 
The section also contains over 13,000 
bound volumes of newspapers, a file of 
which is being indexed with reference to 
the history of the State. Students will 
be assisted in their work.

Newspaper Index 
The index covers the period from 
August 15, 1846, to date. 

Catalog 

323 cards have been added to the Cali- 
fornia catalog during the last quarter. 

Pioneer Museum 
Owing to our decreased budget, the 
pioneer museum has been closed for an 
indefinite period. 

PRINTS SECTION 

Beetha S. Taylor, Librarian. 

The Prints Section has been established 
only since the new State Library building 
was occupied in August, 1928. In it are 
kept the prints acquired by the State Li- 
brary for several years past and now for 
the first time suitably housed and dis- 
played. In display cases can be shown 
about fifty prints at a time and exhibits 
are constantly maintained. Visitors are 
invited. 

One print was added by gift during the 
last quarter, making the total number of 
prints 3147. 

In January selections from the annual 
exhibit of the California Society of 
Etchers were shown in the Prints Room. 
The exhibit in February was a one-man 
show of linoleum prints in color by 
William Seltzer Rice of Oakland. Dur- 
ing March Mexican engravings and litho- 
graphs from the State Library collection 
were exhibited. In connection with this 
show an annotated catalog was prepared 
which made the exhibit doubly interest- 
ing, as it is difficult to find information 
about these Mexican artists in the usual 
sources. 

There were 850 visitors to the Prints 
Room during these three months. 

BOOKS FOR THE BLIND SECTION 

Mabel R. Gillis, in charge. 

Embossed books in the various types 
are sent to any blind resident in Cali- 
fornia upon application. Circular and 
finding list, with Call slip postal, will be 
sent on request. Writing appliances and 
games for the blind are loaned as samples 
to those wishing to buy such articles, so 
that the different kinds can be tried be- 
fore they are ordered. Addresses of firms 
supplying all articles loaned will be fur- 
nished on request. 

Books sent to individuals from an in- 
stitution distributing embossed literature 
are carried free through the mails. 



Embossed catalogs of the earlier mate- 
rial in American Braille, Moon, and New 
York point are available. They will be 
loaned to borrowers wishing them for use 
in book selection. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type in 
the Library up to October 1, 1926% and 
one including all books in Braille up to 
April 1, 1927, will be sent to anyone 
requesting it. 

The State Library will be glad to have 
borrowers who care to do so write any 
letters or requests for books to the Li- 
brary in Braille or New York point. 

Attention of the borrowers is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
brary should always be placed inside 
mail boxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to 
send post card receipts or requests to the 
Library inside of books. Wben books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up 
one by one. Therefore, a request sent in 
that way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent in 
the mail separately. 

Books may be kept one month. At the 
end of that period they will be renewed on 
request unless the demand for them is so 
great that renewal is not feasible. 

At the 1931 session of Congress an an- 
nual appropriation of $100,000 was made 
for providing books for adult blind. This 
work is handled by the Library of Con- 
gress with the books printed at or pur- 
chased from various printing houses. 
The California State Library has been 
designated as one of the centers to receive 
the books printed from this appropriation. 
Many titles have been received and are 
reported currently in the list of books 
added with the note that they are pro- 
vided by the United States government 
through the Library of Congress. 

The first book was loaned June 13, 
1905. There are now 3381 blind bor- 
rowers, 34 borrowers having been added 
during January, February and March. 
Total accessions are 35,703, as fol- 
lows : New York point books 2945 ; New 
York point music 188 ; American Braille 
books 3146 ; American Braille music 
1289 ; European Braille books 4593 ; 
European Braille music 327 ; Esperanto 
Braille books 3 ; Moon books 8290 ; Moon 
music 5 ; Revised Braille books 13,518 ;

books 14 ; Line books 193 ; Line music 
21 ; Ink Print books 644 ; *Appliances

During January, February and March 
9528 books, etc., were loaned as fol- 
lows : New York point 29 ; American 



* Appliances and games are loaned as 
samples to anyone wishing to try them.

Home Teaching 

Kate M. Foley, home teacher of the 
blind, is at the Argyle Apartments, 146 
McAllister street, San Francisco, every 
Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Her 
telephone number is Market 0690. She 
gives lessons regularly in the bay region 
and the Santa Clara Valley, with occa- 
sional trips to other parts of the State. 
Catharine J. Morrison, home teacher of 
the blind, is at the Los Angeles County 
Free Library, Broadway Annex, Hall of 
Records, the first Wednesday of each 
month. Her home address is 951 S. 
Kenmore ave., Los Angeles. Her tele- 
phone number is Fitzroy 3251. She 
gives lessons regularly in Los Angeles 
and vicinity and makes occasional trips 
to San Diego. 

From January 1 to March 31, home 
teachers gave 627 lessons in the homes of 
the blind and 12 lessons in libraries. 
They made 184 visits and calls in connec- 
tion with the work for purposes other 
than giving lessons, and have received 
89 visits in connection with the work. 

During the quarter Miss Foley and 
Miss Morrison spent 332 hours on cor- 
respondence and preparing lessons. They 
wrote 452 letters and 278 postals and 
received 302 letters and 103 postals. 
They also answered and made 588 tele- 
phone calls. They made 5 addresses. 
Miss Foley, as usual, taught the writing 
of Braille to classes of seeing people in 
Oakland, in Alameda and in San Fran- 
cisco. She spent 44 hours in proof read- 
ing hand copied books. The various other 
activities in connection with the work of 
the home teachers can not easily be tabu- 
lated.

PRIVATE PRESSES AND FINE PRINTERS OF CALIFORNIA* 

By Carl I. Wheat 



When Miss Britton asked me to address 
this convention I suggested that I might 
j possibly palm off upon you something 
I of an historical character that I had 
1 tried out on other audiences. But she 
j wanted something less musty — something 
j about books and printers. I at first 
j pleaded ignorance of the subject, but at 
j length suggested as a topic : "Some Un- 
j printable Facts About California's Fine 
j Printers." She looked at me a bit dubi- 
] ously, and reminded me that there would 
] be ladies present. I shall therefore do 
j my best to insult no printers and to 
j shock no ladies, though I must confide in 
I you the fact that no less a pair of per- 
1 sonages than the State Librarian and the 
1 Los Angeles City Librarian have both 
{ expressed their regret at the change of 
subject, and I have been urged to accord a 
private audience to a selected group before 
I the close of the convention. I shall do 
I so at midnight on Saturday evening on 
1 the summit of Mt. Wilson. 

I think I ought to tell you that, 

I although I have had the pleasure of an 

j acquaintance of some years with most 

of the men of whose work I shall speak, 

I admit freely — I even boast — that I 

really know little about either private 

I presses or fine printing. The Hoax, 

therefore, which I am about to perpe- 

| trate upon you, is of Miss Britton's own 

;. making, and I warn you to hold her 

\ responsible. It is notorious that we law- 

■ yers are thus frequently called upon to 

I advance strange causes. 

A private press, as I shall use the term, 
[ refers to a wholly personal, wholly non- 
i commercial enterprise, engaged in as an 
j avocation, usually by one who is not a 
• professional printer, for the mere pleasure 
| of the doing. Excellence of results — as 

isuch — is unimportant when we consider 
the private press. It is the spirit behind 
the work that counts, rather than the 
quality or lack of it, as printing. But 
j while his work is noncommercial in char- 
' acter, the private printer may, on occa- 
; sion. market his products, to help defray 



expense, if the marketing remains purely 
incidental to the effort itself. 

A fine printer, on the other hand, is 
one whose work has been recognized as 
outstanding by those who are qualified 
by taste and background to judge of such 
matters. This is a problem in aesthetics, 
and for that reason no exact or positive 
definition is possible. Let us get at it 
by a process of elimination. 

Fine printing is not distinguishable by 
its size — for some of the worst of printed 
books are grandiose, overgrown affairs. 
It is not a matter of the use of color 
or brass rule — for much atrocious printing 
boasts these factors. It is not mere press- 
work ; for all good printing must have 
that. It is not mere spacing, or some 
peculiar type, or some particular kind of 
paper. It is not the use of strange 
devices or the affectation of a deckle edge. 
And emphatically it is not the mere limi- 
tation of the number of copies printed, 
for the so-called "Limited Edition" may 
or may not be fine printing. Usually it 
is what a recent writer has termed "so 
much mere boobybait." 

To the layman the very term "fine 
printing" is a bit unintelligible. A busi- 
ness acquaintance of mine recently stopped 
me on the street to remark that he under- 
stood I was interested in fine printing. 
"I'm anxious to locate some," he said. 
"Maybe you can help me. My eyes have 
been troubling me lately and my doctor 
suggests that I look up something set 
in the tiniest type I can find and read 
for ten minutes every day the very finest 
printing I can find. Haven't you some 
fine printing you can loan me?" I 
assured him that my kind of "fine print- 
ing" and his had nothing in common, and 
we went our several ways. But if fine 
printing — your kind and mine — is inde- 
finable and elusive, it may yet be recog- 
nized by those who seek it. And because 
of this, let me first discuss the fine print- 
ers of California, leaving the private 
presses until later. 

I shall not attempt a catalogue or

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



[July, 1934 



bibliography, and I have brought no sam- 
ples with me. I shall merely present a 
few purely personal reactions to the men 
whom I have happened to know in this 
field. When we speak of "fine printers'' 
we at once think of William Morris and 
of the revival of printing for which he 
was so largely responsible. We can not 
look upon the magnificent productions of 
the Kelmscott Press without coming 
under his spell. And we also think of 
Cobden-Sanderson and Emery Walker and 
David Berkeley, Updike and Carl Puring- 
ton Rollins and Bruce Rogers — to men- 
tion only a few of the apostles of this 
rebirth of taste and workmanship which 
began with Morris. 

Here on the Pacific coast we have a 
unique group of men worthy to be named 
in the same breath with these masters. I 
refer, of course, primarily to Edwin 
Grabhorn and John Henry Nash, but 
there are others also — as we shall see. 

Edwin Grabhorn, in my estimation, 
must come first in any such considera- 
tion of California's fine printers. In his 
tiny shop in San Francisco, he and his 
brother Robert have turned out, a few 
pages at a time, some of the truly great 
masterpieces of modern printing. Who. 
indeed, can look upon his- "Leaves of 
Grass," his "Santa Fe Trail," his "Letter 
of Amerigo Vespucci," his "Voyages and 
Travels of Sir John Maundeville," or his 
dainty "Book of Ruth" without a thrill? 
Ed Grabhorn is what the biologist would 
term a "sport," a wholly unpredictable 
genius. His work has a bold, yet an 
elusive quality, and seemingly everything 
he touches — down to the smallest and 
most ephemeral item — becomes in his 
hands a thing of beauty. Who save him 
would have dared to print Oscar Wilde's 
"Salome" in a sans-serif type? Who else 
would have dreamed that title page of 
the "Santa Fe Trail," and then been able 
to put it into execution? 

I spent last Sunday evening with Ed 
Grabhorn talking of early California. He 
is one of the leading enthusiasts in this 
field, and during the past few years has 
been turning more and more in this direc- 
tion for the subject-matter of his efforts. 
His recently completed series of ten 
reprints of rare early western books is 
now being followed by a series of five 
even more finely-conceived volumes. On 



the press now is "Old Block's Sketch 
Book," of which sixteen pages have been 
completed. It will be a book of great 
interest, both to lovers of fine printing 
and to collectors of items dealing with 
the early west. There, in his little print- 
ing office, these things are being given 
life and beauty in the hands of this great, 
yet simple and wholly unassuming mas- 
ter. Small wonder that George W. Jones, 
himself one of the leading fine printers 
of England, should recently have spoken 
of the Grabhorns as "the greatest printers 
in the world today." Emphatically, the 
Grabhorn books are books to be read. 
Ed Grabhorn strives at no grandiose 
effects, and while much of his work has 
harked back in spirit to the master efforts 
of the earliest period of printing, he is not 
a mere "period printer." He is, indeed, 
one of those rare mutations — one who 
instinctively strikes out for a goal which 
no mere training nor ambition can render 
attainable to the ordinary run of men. 

Next to Grabhorn we must unquestion- 
ably place John Henry Nash. Here, 
however, we shall find differences of 
opinion. Primarily Nash differs from 
Grabhorn in the cold excellence of his 
work, as compared with the warm and 
human qualities of Grabhorn's beautiful 
pages. Nash has been criticized because 
of a somewhat apparent striving for effect, 
and some critics have urged that he is a 
master of brass rule alone. I believe, 
however, that the dispassionate observer 
must admit that he is also very much 
of a genius. And this is peculiarly true 
in respect to the books which he has 
himself set into type. At the case he is 
a master craftsman, and he has never 
forgotten the advice given him many years 
ago by that other great American printer, 
Theodore De Vinne, who urged him never 
to lose his intimate touch with the tools 
of his trade. 

Aside from the beautiful books which 
Mr. Nash has made for William Andrews 
Clark, his most notable effort has been 
his printing of Professor Anderson's 
translation of Dante, in four large vol- 
umes on specially made paper, bound in 
Germany in full vellum. Perhaps it is 
the very magnificence of this tour de 
force which renders it to me a bit cold. 
I like better, personally, his printing of 
Boccaccio's "Life of Dante." which he 



vol. 29, no. 3] private presses and fine printers 



95 



did some years ago for distribution among 
his friends, and which has now become a 
rare and much sought-for volume. 

Perhaps it is his familiarity with early 
printed books which renders Mr. Nash 
partial to the folio. Whatever it may be, 
he runs naturally to large page sizes. 
But his versatility is disclosed in the two 
lovely little volumes which he printed for 
Albert Bender of San Francisco, in mem- 
ory of Anne Bremer, the artist. 

Like Grabhorn, Nash has done much of 
his best work for the Book Club of Cali- 
fornia, that unique group of booklovers 
which centers in San Francisco. He has 
also printed many commercial pieces of 
an ephemeral nature for various business 
houses. Perhaps as genuinely pleasing 
as any of his efforts was his printing of 
Henry L. Bullen's "Nicholas Jenson," in 
which — as a recent critic has said — he has 
attained "a quality of simplicity and 
restraint not found in the majority of his 
books." He is now at work on a render- 
ing of the Vulgate Bible, which he hopes 
will be his monument, much as the great 
"Chaucer" is the monument of William 
Morris. 

We can not leave the fine printers of 
San Francisco without mention of the 
Johnson Brothers, James and Cecil, who 
possess the true spirit of the old-time 
craftsmen, and who have demonstrated 
their ability in a number of books pub- 
lished under the name of the "Windsor 
Press." Helen Gentry, John Johnck, 
Lawton Kennedy and Taylor & Taylor 
are also doing remarkable work in the 
Bay region. Kennedy's efforts on the 
Quarterly of the California Historical 
Society deserve special notice, and Tay- 
lor & Taylor are outstanding, though 
their work is almost wholly commercial 
in character. They have demonstrated 
that a catalogue can be made a work of 
art in the hands of printers of real under- 
standing. 

South of the Tehachapi "fine printers" 
are fewer than in the north. Yet we 
should not forget the excellent work which 
is being done by Bruce McAllister, who 
was, I believe, the first local printer to 
have a book accepted among the "Fifty 
Books of the Tear" by the American 
Institute of Graphic Arts. McAllister 
has printed two excellent books in collab- 
oration with Jake Zeitlin, the bookseller, 



one a translation of "Bine Blume aus den 
Goldene Lande oder Los Angeles," and 
the other Sarah Bixby Smith's charming 
"Adobe Days." While McAllister's work 
can hardly be said to possess the out- 
standing qualities of either Nash or Grab- 
horn, he has done and is doing the sort 
of printing which we recognize at once 
as of high calibre. Along with him must 
be placed T. E. Williams of the Santa 
Ana Junior College, some of whose recent 
work ranks well with anything which has 
been produced in southern California. 

Ward Ritchie once came to Zeitlin and 
confessed that, while he knew nothing of 
the art, he yearned and hankered mightily 
to be a printer. He hired the use of a 
commercial print shop on Sundays, when 
the regular printers were at the beach, 
and acquired the rudiments. Later he 
spent some time in Europe, visiting the 
master printers of England and the Con- 
tinent, and spending a period at work in 
the shop of that tremendous genius, 
Schmied of Paris. Since returning to 
Los Angeles, Ritchie has become asso- 
ciated with Zeitlin and two others in the 
"Primavera Press," whose books he will 
print. 

Another printer whose name should be 
mentioned is Thomas Perry Stryker, 
whose printing of Grapewin's "The Town 
Pump" was among "the Fifty Books of 
1933." 

Saul Marks, who operates "The Plantin 
Press," seems to have a future as a 
printer. He set the type for "A Gil Bias 
in California," recently published by 
Zeitlin, and he has done a number of 
attractive smaller items. 

There are others, no doubt, who deserve 
mention among the "fine printers" of the 
West. But those whom I have mentioned 
form a notable group. A few years ago 
someone wrote of "The California School 
of Printing," and attributed the tendency 
of many of our printers toward so-called 
"period printing" to the salubrity of our 
climate, which was supposed in some 
fashion to have carried them back in 
spirit to the master period of the incuna- 
bulae. I can not agree, either as to the 
effects of the climate or the existence of 
the alleged "school." If you were to 
gather together a representative group of 
the works of all these men, you would 
find no such similarity of style or treat-

ment as would merit their classification 
in a single "school." Their work is as 
varied as are their varying backgrounds, 
and if the term "The California School" 
means anything at all, it signifies only 
the common striving after beauty and 
vital excellence which dignifies the work 
of each of these men. 

And now for the "Private Presses." I 
have been greatly aided in preparing this 
phase of my paper by the courtesy of Mr. 
Sam Farquhar of the University of Cali- 
fornia Press, who courteously sent me a 
copy of the proof of Miss Louise F. Barr's 
new book "Presses of Northern California 
and Their Books," now being printed by 
the Book Arts Club of Berkeley. In my 
opinion, no library which attempts in any 
way to cover this subject can afford to 
pass up this book. And my enthusiasm 
is naturally not greatly lessened by the 
pleasant little comment which Miss Barr 
makes anent "The Wheatstalk Press." 

In the north private presses flourish 
in considerable abundance. Miss Rosa- 
lind E. Keep of Mills College boasts a 
Colt Armory press of her own, and on 
it she prints the productions of "The Euca- 
lyptus Press" — she and her three assist- 
ants being jointly known about the 
college as "The Four Horsewomen of the 
Eucalyptus." 

Palo Alto has a veritable plethora of 
private presses — even though the "Wheat- 
stalk" has removed to parts unknown. 
Edwin C. and Dorothy J. Starks operated, 
until Professor Starks' death in 1932, 
the "Old Garret Press," for the printing 
of accounts of his travels. "The House 
of Huntington" consists of Tuley F. 
Huntington and a Chandler & Price hand 
press, on which he has printed three 
books and some leaflets. Nathan van 
Patten boasts no actual press, but has 
put out several items under the imprint 
of "The Terba Buena Press." And Hart- 
ley Jackson has operated under so many 
names that I hesitate to credit the tale. 

In Berkeley there is not only the Book 
Arts Club, of which Sam Farquhar is the 
mentor, but your own members Tom 
and Barbara Cowles have brought forth 
several small items on their "Church- 
mouse Press." 

Then there is the "Press in the Forest" 
of Jacob W. Wright, at Carmel, and 
Hugh A. Studdert Kennedy's "Farallon 
Press" at San Francisco. 



The work of the late Thomas C. Russell 
was in a sense "private" and in a sense 
commercial. It was not "fine printing," 
though Mr. Russell prided himself highly 
upon his standards of craftsmanship, and 
once confided to me that "John Henry 
Nash doesn't know the first principles of 
printing — no sir, not even the first princi- 
ples." Russell was a strange character, 
but a capable artisan, and I understand 
that the State Library is to be credited 
with suggesting to him most of the early 
California titles which he reprinted. 

I can not refrain from pausing here 
to pay a tribute to that great library, 
over which Miss Mabel Gillis so ably 
presides. While most of my own work 
has been done in its California Depart- 
ment, under the helpful guidance of Miss 
Eudora Garoutte and later of Miss Caro- 
line Wenzel, I know that the same excel- 
lence is maintained throughout the organi- 
zation. A mere aggregation of books is 
not a library ; it is the human and the 
understanding touch that transforms it. 
If, as is said, Mark Hopkins on one end 
of a log and a student on the other was a 
University, then I feel sure that Miss 
Gillis. or any of her assistants, and * a 
couple of books would be a library — a 
thing which no mere mass of books or 
even the greatest collection of rarities 
could ever become withoiit that element 
of personality. It is always a pleasure 
to be able to render homage to such an 
institution, and I feel a just pride in the 
work and accomplishments of our State 
Library. 

Of the private printers of southern 
California the late Arthur Ellis was the 
patriarch. He it was who interested 
most of us in this fascinating field. He 
made no claims to artistic excellence, yet 
the products of his Colt Armory press are 
comfortable to look upon, and what is 
more, are valuable for their content. One 
of Ellis' first efforts was the reprinting 
of Hugo Reid's celebrated work on "The 
Indians of Los Angeles County." Reid, 
an Englishman who married the daugh- 
ter of a Gabrieleno Chief, published his 
essay in installments in the Los Angeles 
Star in 1852, and since then it had never 
been reprinted in full. Ellis recognized 
its great ethnological importance, and his 
little reprint has become widely known. 
He founded the Zamorano Club, named 
after California's first printer, and gath- 



VOl. 29, 110. 3] PRIVATE PRESSES AND FINE PRINTERS

ered about him a notable group of book 
lovers. Just before his untimely death 
he had completed printing the text of 
Cave Couts' journal of his trip from San 
Diego to the Colorado in 1879, which was 
later brought out as a memorial to him 
by the Zamorano Club. 

Among those whom Ellis assisted in 
the way of printing was Gregg Anderson, 
who printed a number of small but highly 
individual items, chiefly poetry, before 
leaving for a year with the Grabhorns 
and later for the east, where he is now 
at work. 

Roland Baughman of the Huntington 
Library staff has recently joined the ranks 
of local private printers. He has a small 
hand press, and though he has only 
started, he has done some excellent 
announcements for his institution. 

Frank Cushing, a retired inventor, 
plays at printing in Los Angeles. I have 
not seen any of his work, but I under- 
stand that he is taking his hobby with 
dangerous seriousness. 

Grant Dahlstrom, typographer for 
Young and McAllister, now operates 
Arthur Ellis' press, under the name of 
"The Ampersand Press." He is at pres- 
ent printing a book of poems by Rolf 
Hoffmann, Professor of German at the 
University of California at Los Angeles. 

Jake Zeitlin once operated a small hand 
press, which is, however, at present in a 
state of suspended animation. He and 
Dahlstrom have in production on Ellis' 
press an unpublished work of Heinrich 
Heine, "The Gods in Exile," for which 
Paul Jordan Smith has written an intro- 



duction. Indeed, after Arthur Ellis, I 
believe that Jake Zeitlin deserves particu- 
lar mention in connection with printing in 
southern California. Jake, whose small 
but highly interesting bookshop is well 
known to all librarians, has been inde- 
fatigable in his efforts to further the 
cause of good printing in this area. Just 
now he is engaged, with Ward Ritchie, 
Phil Hanna and Carey. MacWilliams, in 
developing "The Primavera Press." I 
begged of him a few of the beautiful little 
announcements of that enterprise, and 
any of you who may be interested may 
have a copy. I also have a few copies 
of the announcement of the work on 
Robinson Jeffers which the press is now 
bringing out. On it is an original Rock- 
well Kent initial for your collections. He 
tells me that the most notable achieve- 
ment of the Primaveras was the printing 
of a little book by Gladys Dubois called 
"Wives Come First," because of which 
she was chosen to prepare the lyrics for 
Mae West's "I'm No Angel." Truly, no 
one can tell where private press activities 
may end ! 

Perhaps in closing I should remark 
that, in my estimation, the budding of so 
many private printers in this region is 
not really as terrifying a thing as it might 
seem at first blush. They are compara- 
tively harmless, and Youth must have 
its fling. In any event, few, if any, of 
these enthusiasts will make the other 
class, try as they may. For the truly 
"fine printer" is a rare animal. By their 
fruits, indeed, ye shall know them.

PRINTS SECTION 

Bertha S. Taylok, Librarian. 

The Prints Section has been established

kept the prints acquired by the State Li- 
brary for several years past and now for 
the first, time suitably housed and dis- 
played. In display cases can be shown 
about fifty prints at a time and exhibits 
are constantly maintained. Visitors are 
invited. 

Thirty-one prints were added by gift 
during the last quarter, making the total 
number of prints 3178. There were 1280 
visitors to the Prints Room during these 
three months. The increased number was 
largely due to the three-day Know Your 
Government Open House in May. 

Exhibits for the quarter were as fol- 
lows : In April oil-wash drawings by 
Edith Kinney Stellman of San Francisco, 
loaned by the artist ; in May drypoints 
by Jeannette Maxfield Lewis of Fresno,

BOOKS FOR THE BLIND SECTION 

Mabel R. Gillis, in charge. 

Embossed books in the various types 
are sent to any blind resident of Cali- 
fornia upon application. Circular and 
finding list with Call slip postal, will be 
sent on request. Writing appliances and 
games for the blind are loaned as samples 
to those wishing to buy such articles, so 
that the different kinds can be tried be- 
fore they are ordered. Addresses of firms 
supplying all articles loaned will be fur- 
nished on request. 

Books sent to individuals from an in- 
stitution distributing embossed literature 
are carried free through the mails. 

_ Embossed catalogs of the earlier mate- 
rial in American Braille, Moon, and New 

3 — 13236 



York point are available. They will be 
loaned to borrowers wishing them for use 
in book selection. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type in 
the Library up to October 1, 1926, and 
one including all books in Braille up to 
April 1, 1927, will be sent to anyone 
requesting it. 

The State Library will be glad to have 
borrowers who care to do so write any 
letters or requests for books to the Li- 
brary in Braille or New York point. 

Attention of the borrowers is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
brary should always be placed inside 
mail boxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to 
send post card receipts or requests to the 
Library inside of books. When books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up 
one by one. Therefore, a request sent in 
that way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent in 
the mail separately. 

Books may be kept one month. At the 
end of that period they will be renewed on 
request, unless the demand for them is so 
great that renewal is not feasible. 

At the 1931 session of Congress an an- 
nual appropriation of $100,000 was made 
for providing books for adult blind. This 
work is handled by the Library of Con- 
gress with the books printed at or pur- 
chased from various printing houses. 
The California State Library has been 
designated as one of the centers to receive 
the books printed from this appropriation. 
Many titles have been received and are 
reported currently in the list of books 
ndded with the note that they are pro- 
vided by the United States government 
through the Library of Congress. 

The first book was loaned June 13, 
1905. There are now 3391 blind bor- 
rowers, 45 borrowers having been added 
during April, May and June and 35 bor- 
rowers lost by death from July 1, 1933, 
to June 30, 1934. Total accessions are 
36.346, as follows : New York point books 
2953 ; New York point music 188 ; Ameri- 
can Braille books 3146 ; American Braille 
music 12S9 ; European Braille books 
4622; European Braille music 330; Es-

Home Teaching 

Kate M. Foley, home teacher of the 
blind, is at the Argyle Apartments, 146 
McAllister street, San Francisco, every 
Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Her 
telephone number is Market 0690. She 
gives lessons regularly in the bay region 
and the Santa Clara Valley, with occa- 
sional trips to other parts of the State. 
Catharine J. Morrison, home teacher of 
the blind, is at the Los Angeles County 
Free Library, Broadway Annex, Hall of 
Records, the first Wednesday of each 
month. Her home address is 951 S. 
Kenmore ave., Los Angeles. Her tele- 
phone number is Fitzroy 3251. She 
gives lessons regularly in Los Angeles 
and vicinity and makes occasional trips 
to San Diego. 

From April 1 to June 30, home 
teachers gave 690 lessons in the homes of 
the blind and 22 lessons in libraries. 
They made 188 visits and calls in connec- 
tion with the work for purposes other 
than giving lessons, and have received 
101 visits in connection with the work. 

During the quarter Miss Foley and 
Miss Morrison spent 386 hours on cor- 
respondence and preparing lessons. They 
wrote 484 letters and 283 postals and 
received 317 letters and 106 postals. 
They also answered and made 589 tele- 
phone calls. They made 2 addresses. 
Miss Foley, as usual, taught the writing 
of Braille to classes of seeing people in 
Oakland, in Alameda and in San Fran- 
cisco. She spent 18 hours in proof read- 
ing hand copied books. The various other 
activities in connection with the work of 
the home teachers can not easily be tabu- 
lated.

CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES— ANNUAL STATISTICS 



In June annual report blanks were sent to all California libraries 
listed. Statistics from these annual reports are printed in this issue. 
Except when otherwise noted, statistics are for the period from July 1, 
1933, to June 30, 1934. 

Branch library statistics are omitted under the names of the 
various branches. They are included, however, in the general figures 
given under the main library. On account of the above, high school, 
public and other libraries, which are affiliated with a county free 
library, show, as a rule, statistics for their own books only and not for 
county service. 

In order to keep statistics given herein consistent with figures given 
by the State Department of Education, we have counted all districts 
in a union district as separate districts in "number of active school 
districts that have joined county libraries." 



All libraries are listed except elemen- 
tary public school and church libraries 
and those which belong to private indi- 
viduals. They are arranged alphabetically 
by place under counties and counties are 
arranged alphabetically. To determine 
the county in which any place is located 
see list following these introductory para- 
graphs. This list includes locations of 
branch libraries, although the branches 
are listed only under the main library. 

Those libraries are marked with an 
asterisk (*) which are not free to the 
public for either loan or reference pur- 
poses. 

The following libraries marked with i 
are U. S. Depository Libraries : 

Alturas, Modoc County Library 

Berkeley, University of California Li- 
brary 

Claremont, Pomona College Library 

Eureka, Free Library 

Fresno, Fresno County Library 

Long Beach, Public Library 

Los Angeles, Public Library, Univer- 
sity of California at Los Angeles Library, 
University of Southern California Library 

Oakland, Free Library 

Riverside, Public Library 

Sacramento, California State Library, 






City Free Library 

San Diego, Public Library 
San Francisco, Mechanics Mercantile 
Library, Public Library 

Santa Rosa, Free Public Library 
Stanford University, Stanford Univer- 
sity Library 

Stockton, Free Public Library 
The following libraries marked with a 
t are Library of Congress card deposi- 
tories : 

Berkeley, University of California Li- 
brary 

Los Angeles, Public Library, University 
of California at Los Angeles Library 
Sacramento, California State Library 
Stanford University, Stanford Univer- , 
sity Library 

When a branch has a reading room, it | 
is indicated by r. r. in the list of branches | 
under county free library.

are abbreviated as follows :

September S 
October O 
November N 
December D 

In order that the figures for circulation 
may be uniform, current magazines are 
included in the total whether reported 
that way or not. 

An effort is made to have the statistics 
uniform in reference to number of 
branches. Any distributing point through 
which service is given directly from 
headquarters is counted as a branch. 
For example, in a school with several 
classrooms, if service is given directly to 
each classroom separately, each room 
served is counted as a branch. If a 
school district has joined and both school 
and community service are given from one 
location, such service is counted as two 
branches. 

Under county libraries statistics "school 
enrollment" or "average daily attendance" 
has been given in an attempt to show 
more accurately the number of users of 
the library. Similarly in an effort to 
make the circulation as given more nearly 
correct, some county libraries count the 
use of supplementary books. Where this 
has been done, the figures have been 
given with an explanation of how the 
circulation has been kept or estimated. 

There are in California 46 county free 
libraries ; 6 library district libraries ; 4 
union high school district libraries ; 146 
libraries supported by city taxation ; 61 
towns or districts with free public libra- 
ries that are included in county free 
library service (28 under Sec. 3, 7 under 
Sec. 4, 14 under Sec. 16, 12 under Pol. C, 
Sec. 4041) ; 67 law libraries, of which 56 
are county law libraries ; 5S county 
teachers' libraries ; 443 libraries in edu- 
cational institutions, of which 5 are uni- 
versities, 12 colleges, 7 State teachers col- 
leges, 363 public high schools and junior 
colleges, 56 private schools and other in- 
stitutions ; 72 miscellaneous institution 
libraries ; 51 association or society libra- 
ries and 17 subscription libraries. In 
connection with the above libraries are 
4406 branches and deposit stations. 

There are 335 library buildings, of 
which 179 were gifts, and of these gifts 
142 are from Andrew Carnegie.

ties, the following alphabetical list by

The Lancaster Branch building was 
built and is owned jointly by Los Angeles 
Co. Free Library and the Justice Court 
of Lancaster. The Inglewood Public Li- 
brary Building, erected at a cost of 
$10,000, is a Carnegie gift and was pre- 
sented to Inglewood in 1917. The $25,- 
000 Claremont Branch building erected on 
a lot given by Mrs. Helen Rennick, was 
built by a local bond issue in the summer 
of 1928. The $40,000 Bruggemeyer Memo- 
rial Library building at Monterey Park 
was presented to the City of Monterey 
Park by Judge Mancha Bruggemeyer, 
March 28, 1929. The $30,000 Monte- 
bello Library building, owned by the mu- 
nicipality, was erected by a bond issue. 
Palos Verdes Branch is located in $60,000 
library building erected by Palos Verdes 
Library District. 

During the year plans were submitted 
to the Federal government requesting aid 
for the new building proposed for the 
Lancaster Regional Library and a grant 
of $2300 has been allowed, but the work 
has not yet been started. An unsuc- 
cessful attempt was made to secure Fed- 
eral aid for the restoration of the munici- 
pally owned library building at Compton, 
destroyed by the earthquake of March 10, 
1933. Success met the efforts made for 
Federal aid in the rebuilding of the Ingle- 
wood Library. A grant of $9000 was 
allowed ; this building will be ready for 
occupancy about December 1. The floor 
space and book capacity will be nearly 
double that of the former building, dam- 
aged by the earthquake of March 10, 1933. 

The tax rate for 1934-35 is .6 m. on the 
dollar, which will raise about $229,824.

in the library is due to the fact that the 
j books are passed out to the inmates in 
three library lines, one at 6.45 a.m., one 
at 10.45 a.m., and one at 2.45 p.m. Hun- 
' dreds of men march into the library on 
j the three lines and must be waited on 
: promptly ; no loitering is allowed. The 
; library counters and book racks have 
i recently been reconditioned and reorgan- 
! ized. A gallery has been constructed to 
provide room for the inmate library offi- 
cials.
