Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Fires and Firefighting 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 scattered correspondence on letterhead stationery, trade catalogues, advertising cards, bills/receipts, badges, business cards, photographs, lithographs, caricatures, invitations, announcements, patents, articles, reports, pamphlets, periodicals, programs, and printed advertisements from manufacturers and distributors of equipment and supplies for firemen including fire extinguishers, ladders, exhaust fans, caps, hoses and fire engines. There is also material from insurance companies for firemen, firemens' associations and activities such as firemens' balls, parades and picnics. There is very little information on supplies for the public or domestic use. Most of the material is directed to the firefighting profession. There are a number of images of major fires. Products are fireproof metal ceiling, walls steel shelving, steel cabinets, steel lockers and Kalamein doors.

Materials in box one and the beginning of box two are organized by name of company. The remaining folders in box two and box three are arranged by type including general images, patents and related publications.

Provenance:
Fires and Firefighting 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.

Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.
