Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Ephemera related to Zamorano Club events from 1929-1935, from the collection of bibliographer Robert E. Cowan.
The Zamorano Club is a Southern Californian 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 Club members at meetings, resulting in a variety of printed mementos ranging from pamphlets to small books; sometimes the items are reproductions of historical documents. Early members include A. Gaylord Beaman, Garner A. Beckett, William W. Clary, Arthur M. Ellis, W. Irving Way, Robert O. Schad, and Robert E. Cowan.
