Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Approximately 222 publishers' advertising pamphlets from primarily Los Angeles-based bookstores from the 1900s to the 1920s. The majority of pamphlets were produced by Alfred A. Knopf, Macmillan, Houghton-Mifflin, Scribner, Doubleday, Page & Company, Duran Books and P.F. Collier & Son.
This collection consists of publishers' advertising pamphlets from primarily Los Angeles Bookstores. The first box contains pamphlets from Fowler Brothers and C.C. Parker Booksellers. Fowler Brothers bookstore was the oldest family-owned bookstore in Los Angeles, in operation from 1888 to 1994, when it closed due to changing times and disruptive subway construction. It began initially as a church and Sunday school supply house, but became a book and stationery store that survived six different downtown locations.
