By Spring, S.N., et alia

U.S. Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Forestry, 1910. Averaging perhaps 30 or 40 pages, these punchholed for fastening and in fact are fastened with cords into a single generic library cardstock monstrosity, the covers broken and distorted, while the pamphlets are in way better shape even though Dewey-decimaled and perforated with institutional information. The lot of eleven as a sort of run. Find a plethora of b&w site photography with human figures often in the scene (for scale), and numerous folded maps some in colors, none in bad shape.

Some Further "Deviations" in the Bancroft Histories [with] The Bancroft Library as Material for Pacific States History [with] A Brief Account of the Literary Undertakings of Hubert Howe Bancroft [with] Proceedings of The Society of California Pioneers in Reference to the Histories of Hubert Howe Bancroft [..cover text..Titlepage:] Misrepresentations of Early California History Corrected [four items together]

By Howell, John; Hubert Howe Bancroft writing anonymously; C.V.S. Gibbs, John I. Spear and others of the Society of California Pioneers; & uncredited authors

San Francisco: John Howell Books / The Argonaut / A.L. Bancroft & Company / The Society of California Pioneers, 1920. Praise and damnation of HHB. Respectively: an undated 2p. flimsy over Howell's typed signature, folded once, 2nd or 3rd carbon, good copy. - An offprint, 26p. pamphlet, sewn with original thread vg in plain printed 8.5x5.5 inch wraps, vertical fold-line, good copy. - A 12p. pamphlet sewn with orig.thread in wraps, 8.5x5.5, dust-soiled with a long split to spinefold and faint vertical crease, fair to good-only copy. - A 37p. stapled pamphlet in 9x6 wraps printed with Society logo, has a vertical crease, one staple nearly detached, good only. This related group of four as a small lot. Howell's is a measured overview, his is a bookseller's concern with first-edition points and textual alteration: "There is a story behind each such textual change. That of the Stanford incident..was clearly a matter of flattery. The incident in respect to the remarks about David S. Terry was of another character. In that case the first printing tells the real story, while political pressure - or possibly the threat of violence - is responsible for the [later] variant reading.." Mr Howell continues: "There follows a list of all variant readings..which have thus far been called to my attention" (a compressed list follows on second flimsy). The other negative view of Bancroft is an attack, the Society's: "Resolved, That the name of Hubert Howe Bancroft be stricken from the list of Honorary Members"; sustaining points mostly concern California, but Bancroft's alleged "apparently malignant and certainly cruel and unjust, attack upon the name and memory of General Grant" is indignantly noted.
