Business ephemera

Date:
circa 1855-1940
Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Poets 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 subject category- Poets contains material relating to twenty-four well-known poets from America and the United Kingdom. Most of the material in this collection was published in the late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century, and is representative of how poets and poetry were seen in popular society at that time. Though most of the poets are from America and the United Kingdom very few of the items have any geographical location connected to them and many are also undated. The collection is divided into two series the first is information about individual poets the second is material that relates to numerous poets.

Poetry and Poet Biographical Information contains published poetry in book and pamphlet form, ephemeral, illustrated versions poems, and information about the poets written for the public. The ephemeral versions of poems consist of illustrated sheets or small volumes as well as some poetry used in advertising including an embodied bookmark with an image of Robert Frost, and a re-writing of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" to promote Hamlin's Wizard Oil. Material about the poets included biographical sketches, information about the poets' family and home, illustrations of the poets, material from events honoring the poets, and one photograph featuring the home of Edgar Allan Poe. The only poets with signed manuscript copies of poems are Henry W. Austin and A. F. Judd; a self-published, hand-typed volume of work exists for Eva May Sutton. The series is arranged by poet alphabetically.

Information About Multiple Poets, consists of one folder containing a set of six illustrated cards showing the homes of English poets designed by C. Clements and bearing the stamp of D. L. Hamill, Albany, New York.

Provenance:
Poets 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.
