Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains the official archive of the Zamorano Club, a Los Angeles-based club for bibliophiles and manuscript collectors, which was founded in 1928.
The Zamorano Club is a Southern California organization for bibliophiles and manuscript collectors. It was founded in 1928, and sponsors lectures and publications on book-related topics. The Club was named in honor of Agustín V. Zamorano (1798-1842), a provisional governor of Alta California and the state's first printer. It is club tradition to present keepsakes to members at meetings, resulting in a variety of printed mementos ranging from pamphlets to small books; sometimes the items are reproductions of historical documents.
