Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Concrete forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This material consists primarily of trade catalogs, manuals, reference books, primers, handbooks, pamphlets, printed advertisements, caricatures, scattered correspondence on letterhead stationery, articles, instruction books and bulletins from manufacturers of cement and products made of concrete.

Most of the products produced by these companies are for home, industrial and public use. Concrete home products include garden furniture, porches, terraces, garages, walls, gateways, steps, walkways, driveways, pools and bird baths. Industrial and public concrete products include pipes, roads, highways, bridges, septic tanks, sewers and tennis courts. A number of the companies manufactured other products such as plates for reinforced concrete construction of roofs, floors and siding; collapsible steel forms; culverts; lime and plaster.

There are a number of publications included in the materials. Most of these are organized alphabetically by name of company and are found with the rest of the company related materials. Topics include concrete construction about the home and on the farm, concrete highway construction, design and control of concrete mixtures and concrete building frames. Many of these publications include a variety of photographs, diagrams and building specifications. Literature that is not an official publication of a manufacturing company is found at the end of company related materials.

The bulk of the material dates from the twentieth century. Box one is organized alphabetically by name of company. Materials in box two are also organized by company name. There are four folders arranged by type: related publications including bulletins, periodicals, pamphlets and books. There also is a folder of miscellaneous materials.

Series 1: Business Ephemera

Series 3: Isadore Warshaw Personal Papers

Series 4: Photographic Reference Material
Provenance:
Concrete is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.
