THE BOOK CLUB OF CALIFORNIA-- KEEPSAKES FROM THE FRED BOARD COLLECTION ISSUED BETWEEN 1937 & 1997


VG, occasional minor wear or toning; many retaining original mailers, though worn, torn, written on, etc. Some include typed letters from the publishers. A wonderful group of reference material & fine printing, purchased over years by the inimitable book collector Fred Board, probably best remember for his extensive collection of unusual or odd examples of printing. Most have his price-coded purchase notation; a number were acquired as a member.
