19th & 20th century printed books, 1800-1999

 Series
Identifier: Series 9

Scope and Contents

From the Collection: The Herbert Kraft manuscripts consist primarily of pages from various books and manuscripts dating from 793 AD to the early twentieth century. The majority of the materials come from printed books, but there are a large number from hand-lettered manuscripts. The pages are made from a variety of materials, including wood-pulp and non-wood-based paper, and vellum.

Most of the items consist of an original page glued along one edge to a folded black cardboard backer which acts as a book cover. Many pages which have been glued completely to the board also include a facsimile of the glued side of the original, likely dating from the 1920s; most of these are identified in the description. Most, but not all, items also include a typed description created by Herbert Kraft and attached to the front of the board holding the item.
