Date:

Scope and Contents:
This subseries of the Notes and writings on special linguistic studies series represents John P. Harrington's miscellaneous writings on a variety of linguistic topics. The subseries is divided into three subsections. The first and largest contains a mixture of preliminary notes, rough drafts, and final drafts for approximately 120 proposed announcements, articles, and papers. The second section contains contributions to the works of others in the form of rough drafts, introductions, and translations, while the third consists of reviews of a number of books and papers, mostly written by friends and colleagues. Within each section papers have been arranged alphabetically.

The papers are based largely on research in secondary sources and cover a broad spectrum of anthropological topics. Some, such as those on binomial nomenclature, captioning, and various inventions, reflect Harrington's interest in scientific method and the technical aspects of the linguistic field. Others deal with the history of linguistic study and, in particular, the contributions of the Bureau of American Ethnology.

One common theme throughout many of the articles is the genetic relationship of the American Indian languages. These papers illustrate Harrington's belief that "language sheds more light on the early history of the American Indian than archeology." Another focus in many of the writings is the importance and uniqueness of the American Indian, especially from the point of view of sign language.

Articles on non-American languages and on the etymologies of certain words reveal his constant sense of curiosity and the numerous sidelines he pursued, as do a set of papers on such historical figures as Chaucer, Columbus, Churchill, and Ghandi. Still other papers ("Counting," for example) were written as part of the "war effort."

Harrington authored all but two of the papers-"New Russian Alphabet Praised by Ethnologist" and "[Translation of the Lord's Prayer]." These items are filed here because they are either based largely on notes from Harrington or contain many quotes from him. A number of the papers were coauthored by associates.

Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Columbus, Christopher 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 popular literature and visual imagery about Columbus' discovery of the New World. There is very little information about Columbus' personal life.

Printed images make up the largest portion of the material. These images consist mostly of engravings and chromolithographs depicting various subject matter including the house where Columbus was born in Genoa, Italy; the landing of Columbus in the New Land; a view of the ruins of his castle in St. Domingo; portraits; his coat of arms and Columbus presenting the products of the New World to Ferdinand and Isabella.

Most of the color images were made in 1892 and include Columbus' first view of the New World, his landing in the New World, his claiming of San Salvador for Spain, and his death.

There are a number of publications. Among the pamphlets are "Christopher Columbus and How He Received and Imparted the Spirit of Discovery" by Justin Winsor published in Boston in 1891. "A New and Fresh English Translation of the Letter of Columbus Announcing the Discovery of America" by Samuel Eliot Morrison (1959) is an English translation of Columbus' celebrated letter of 1493 describing to Ferdinand and Isabella his first voyage to the Indies.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged by type of document and includes print and color images, articles, pamphlets, and a raised cardboard portrait.

Provenance:
Christopher Columbus 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.
