Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Oils and Lubricants 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, pamphlets, price lists, bills/receipts, printed advertisements from manufacturers and dealers of various kinds of oils and lubricants. There is a substantial amount of material from each company. The different kinds of oils include cylinder, machinery, bank, shore, dynamo, paraffine, rosin, wool, olive, ammonia cylinder, lard, sperm, whale, elephant, neats foot, solar, kerosene, black fish, miners', tanners', cod liver, seal, signal, metallic and linseed oils. Companies that tended to sell lard also sold meat products including pork, sausage, tripe and pig's feet. Occasionally they sold a few dairy products such as milk and cheese. The lubricants include coal oil grease, petroleum, benzene, French leather grease, friction belt grease, burning fluid, axle grease and railroad car grease. Most of the companies tended to sell other products including candles, soap, spermaceti, paints, varnishes, glue, cotton, starch, tallow, dyestuffs, chemicals, aniline colors, drugs, shellac and sandpaper. A few companies sold engine supplies. There is only one publication included among the material which is the farmers' bulletin no. 2133 from the U. S. Department of Agriculture titled Growing Safflower published in 1961. The material dates from 1839 - 1905, but the bulk is late nineteenth century. Materials are organized by name of company.

Series 3: Isadore Warshaw Personal Papers

Series 4: Photographic Reference Material
Provenance:
Oils and Lubricants 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.
Restrictions:
Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.
Rights:
