The Inventory of American Imprints, initiated nation-wide in 1937,
was opened in California in June 1938, under Millicent Lawrence, State
Supervisor of the project. It operated as a separate project in Northern
California until October 1940, when it became a phase of the Historical
Records Survey, continuing to operate, however, under the immeliate sup-
ervision of Mrs. Lawrence, Assistant State Supervisor of the Historical
‘ Records Survey. Imprints field and editorial Work is now suspended as all
activities of the Survey not of immediate value to the war effort have
been discontinued. For this reason also, although extensive field and ed-
itorial work have been done on California imprints through the year 1876,
only the present check list covering 1833-1855 can be issued until after
the war.
When the American anrints Inventory was started in the spring of
1937, two final results were anticipated. The first was to be a file or '
union catalog of title slips which would represent the holdings of Am—
erican libraries to the limiting dates for each state in the fields of
books, pamphlets, and broadsidos printed in the United States. The so-
cond was to consist of published check lists drawn from this material,
covering the publications of the various states and certain cities, with—
in certain periods. .
The master file of title slips has been built up until it new con—
tains more than 8,000,000 typed slips, representing possibly 1,000,000
separate titles printed in the jeriod of American printing to 1877 in
all states but Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and the 5
Dakotas. In these states the limitin; date is 1891. because of the :
later start that printing had in them. Work is continuing in several 3
states in making additions to this file, has been completed in some 1
states, and has been discontinued in others. ?
Under the direction of Mr. Douglas C. McMurtrio, Consultant from the i
beginning of the Inventory until July 15, 1941, the second phase, that of 5
publication of check lists was chiefly confined to the editing and is- ;
suance of them in the more complex Style A form in the central filing i
office in Chicago where the editorial staff is located. The Style A lists, é
requiring title page lino endings and printers’ devices and bibliograph- 1
ical notes, entail an almost endless amount of research, both in tho libra- :
ries where the books are located and in the huge file which complements
/ them in the central office. -
3i It had become apparent on the basis of possible pgblication of Style Q
Lb; A lists by either the central office or the various states, that if the
‘4 more than a million titles so far harvostod from American libraries were
“ to be made available to the public some swiftor method of issuing the check :
lists must be found. Two solutions seemed possible; that of abandoning the 2
complex Style A lists and issuing simple Style 3 lists which would provide E

the user with all pertinent information on the title of the book and its
location, author and printer and date of publication, or the return of the
title slips to the states themselves for issuance of Style A lists of their
own titles° The former solution would have speeded up publication to a
considerable extent in the central editing office. The latter Would have
provided twenty or thirty Style A lists at the end of a year, some of which
might have been of questionable quality because of the limitations involved
in personnel and sources for necessary research.

A study of the problem has convinced the Central office of the Histor—
ical Records Survey Projects in Washington that the answer may lie in come
bining the two solutions, that is, the issuance by the various states of
their own titles in simplified Style B check lists which can at a later
time be refined by them or by interested scholars. To this end a manual of
Editing has been written and furnished the various states. In more than
twenty states the staffs have given assurance that such simplified editing
is possible and have requested that their material be sent from the central
files: California is among these states.

This editing was begun for the State of California by a staff of workers
in the Berkeley office of the project but was interrupted by the outbreak of
war. Due to the suspension of Imprints work, slips used in compiling the
present volume were not checked against the Union catalog in the Library of
Congress in the usual way. Special mention must be made of Mrs. Lawrence's
supervision of Imprints field and editorial work. Her thoroughness in train—
ing her large staff of workers, her insistence upon accuracy, and her sincere
interest in the Imprints Inventory awakened an appreciation of its value in
the workers under her jurisdiction. Credit for faithful and accurate work is
due to the following: Aileen Williams, first chief editor, and her successor
Beatrice Lee, the last mentioned of whom occupied this position from July
1939 to June 1941; research field workers Maurice Buswell, George F. Nickerson,
Janet Purcell, Libera E. Spinazzo and the workers who made the entries in the
thtington Library; Martha Roberts, who prepared the Key to Symbols for libra- ’
ries; Caroline O'Hara who prepared the Index of Printers and Publishers; Inez
M. Stryker, who typed the final copy of the manuscript; and Bettina M. Shep—
pard and Libera E. Spinazzo, who cut the stencils and proof-read them.

Without the complete cooperation of the librarians and custodians of
early.American Imprints in California, none of this work could have been ac-
complished. we acknowledge their invaluable assistance. we are particularly
indebted to Miss Mabel R. Gillis, State Librarian, who originally sponsored
the project in Northern California and whose never-failing encouragement to
Mrs. Iawrence and to myself was the source of constant inspiration.

The editing of the California material returned to the state from the
central files in Chicago was begun in the Northern California editorial
office in July 1941. It was planned to issue a check list of all-California
imprints from 1855 to 1856 inclusive as the firSt of three check lists
covering the entire period of 1853 to 1876. Documentary and non-documentary
titles were prepared in Style B form and accumulated in the state editorial
office. It was intended that those titles, then completed, would be cleared
through the central office in Chicago and subsequently through the library
of Congress, in order to provide all possible checks on errors and omissions
and to add any additional 10cations of titles included in the list, known
to the library of Congress but not reported by field workers on the project.
The outbreak of war on December 7th, 1941, rendered it impossible to
carry out the plan above outlined. It became necessary to complete as soon
as possible all work not directly connected with the war which was yet in
such an advanced state of preparation as to render its abandonment inadvis- '
able. The Imprints editor in California, therefore, was instructed to pre-
pare for publication whatever portion of the check list could bo issued at
an early date with some prospect of proving of value to students of Cali-
fornia history. The trained staff in the Berkeley office was Withdrawn for
. urgent war work on other projects or in private industry and limitations of
time and available personnel forced the editor to omit all documentary
titles and to abandon all efforts to make a recheck of non-documentary
titles for additional information or additional locations. The check list I
now issued contains, therefore, such information as was already in the
project files. It is believed that, as it stands, it will prove a valuable

reference tool for students. It can be revised and other volumes in the
series issued as and when opportunity offers.
Of the £89 titles, 228 are listed in the two Cowan bibliographies;
261 are not so listed. Many of these latter were undoubtedly known to
Mr. Conan but were not included by him for the reason that they fell out-
side the scope of his work. 59 of the titles listed here were found in
Harding and 60 in Lagner. Of the total, 60 titles were reported only from
bibliographies or publishers' catalogs, 429 from actual copies found in the
libraries of the United States. 207 of the titles are represented by one .
copy'only as far as the project records go, 180 of these, or approximately
87 per cent, being located in California. The collections in the Bancroft
Library at Berkeley and the Henry E. Huntington Library at San Marino are ‘
responsible for 119 of these unions copies, the score being 65 unique copies
in Bancroft and Ed in Huntington. The number of broadsides included in the
total of 489 items is 128.
The printing presses of Monterey, Sacramento, and San Francisco account
for the greet-majority of titles here listed. The following place names, ‘
however, will be recognized by students of California history as of signifi- j
canoe in the early history of the State; the figures in parentheses denote’
the number of titles in this list printed in the place mentioned; Benicia
‘ (6); Carson's Creek (1); Coloma (1); Grass Valley (2); Los Angeles (12); _
Marysville (5); Nevada City (2); Placorville (1); San Jose (10); Sonoma (163; J
‘ Sonora (3); Stockton (5). 1
The files of many early California newspapers were searched by project ,
workers for references to possible contemporary local publications which ' 9
have since disappeared, but through lack of time the results of this search 1
have not been incorporated in the present check list.

. It will be noted in glancing through this check list of California
imprints that besides the 207 unique copies already mentioned, many more
items are represented by two or three copies only. The scarcity of copies I
of books and documents published in California since the formation of the.
State was noted by Mr. R. E. Cowan in l904. In an article by him entitled
”Bibliographical Notes on Early California", which appeared in the annual
Report_g£lth§_dmerican_historical_é§sociation for the year 1904, he wrote:
"There are but few works printed in New England after the year 1700
that are not more plentiful than most of our works published since 1849, '
and this has been strongly influenced by special causes — the number of
copies of the individual work was at no time large; the character of the
population was unsettled and shifting; there was during the first decade
an almost complete absence of family and domestic life; this and most other
towns were ravaged by successive and widely disastrous fires, which almost
I invariably involved neWSpapers and printing offices; the neglect by the
public libraries of early days to secure and preserve local material; and,
finally, the unhappy success of the ignorantly disposed who waste much val— I
uable material that appears to them to be useless. I
"Each year witnesses the destruction and loss of some valuable material,
both printed and in manuscript, and these various agencies, so destructive to
books, waste the priceless with the poorer material, and it will be only by
systematic endeavor that the comparatively little that yet remains can be
secured and preserved for those who will one day hold this generation to
Since these words were written, the San Francisco fire of 1906 and other ,

 . ix
causes have still further reduced the number of items remaining from the
early formative period of the State. '
