Organization:
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Notebooks were included in a larger body of diverse material acknowledged by Ernst Herzfeld as his study collection. In the early 1970s, Joseph Upton, for research purpose, rearranged the collection and created a specific series (Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks, 1904-1946, 1957, n.d.) for 131 notebooks, including four ledgers and eight travel journals. Upton has given this notebook an accession number, N-118, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization
Summary:
- Handwritten caption, in red, on front cover reads: "Aleppo A."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-118 reads, ""Contains mounted prints of Plates of Corpus (drawings not included). Negative numbers of photographs and Archive numbers of drawings are noted in the printed volumes (Freer Lib. No. 492.717. M2f (3 vols.)). Missing from package are pls.1, 2, 4, 51, 84, 156, 157 and prints not in Archive file of negatives."
