Kern County Historical Society, Founded 1931. Fifth Annual Publication; November, 1939 [featuring] Life of Edward Kern by Spindt [&] Alexis Godey in Kern County by Latta

By Latta, F. F., president and contributor. H. A. Spindt, contributor

Bakersfield: Press of The Bakersfield Californian for the Kern County Historical Society, in Co-operation with Kern County Chamber of Commerce. Pamphlet. 52p., good presswork on alkaline glazed paperstock, softbound in 10x6.5 inch printed wraps. Covers are slightly soiled, staples are rusted with some migration, an otherwise nice clean copy. Godey (article p.21-52) was a reticent man whom scandal dogged; did he poison 42 local Native Americans (to get a certain female)? did he poison 900 (no motivation)? did he lynch a settler named Gray? Author Latta thinks not, aduces exculpatory evidence. Edward Kern (article pp.4-20) was closely associated with John C. Fremont; he appears to have been an unremarkable military man at times at odds with the General.

Spires 1953 / Spires '53

By St. Marie, Father Louis, S.J., moderator [sic] to staff

Spokane WA: The Associated Students of Gonzaga University, 1953. Yearbook staplebound in 16x11.5 inch silkscreen-decorated wraps. Unpaginated, something over one hundred leaves (200p.) More professionally edited than most such annuals; along with the usual mugshots arranged like bathroom tiling, the random-snapshot sections are laid out with national-magazine flair, and to the traditionally formatted materials there is joined a run of the school's weekly newsletter, again a soundly professional production. All text leaves are printed on coated alkaline paperstock and interspersed with textured matte chapter dividers. Internally quite good with occasional autographs in ink. Externally fair-only; the spine panel is burst in several spots and although the staples are holding well the torn spine is unsightly. Expect general rubbing and that the silkscreened surface has picked up mild dust-soil.
