Date:
1738-1940
Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Birds 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 collection consists primarily of images of birds including photographs, lithographs and engravings. Images of eagles, owls, and parrots make up the majority of illustrations. There are sets of cards printed in a series with images of birds on the front and a description on the back. These cards were published by manufacturers and dealers of products such as soap, tobacco, and baking soda. There are images that are not associated with a particular company or have descriptions on the reverse side. Also, some blank advertising cards with merchants names and locations, act as a form of advertising. A large portion of the material is from importers, breeders, and dealers of birds and manufacturers of bird supplies. Bird supplies include bird cages, food, medicine, and whistles for training birds. The material includes catalogues, scattered correspondence on letterhead stationery, bills, receipts, patents, postcards, newspaper clippings, and books. Bird dealers often sold other products including fish shells, animals, naturalists, zoologists, and taxidermist's instruments, flower seeds, aquariums, baskets, gravel, pictures, and frames. There is also a substantial amount of material from bird clubs and associations devoted to saving birds.
Arrangement:
Subseries 1 and 2 are organized alphabetically by name of company. Subseries 3 and 4 are organized by type. Subseries 5 is arranged alphabetically by name of animal.

Series 2: Other Collection Divisions

Series 3: Isadore Warshaw Personal Papers

Series 4: Photographic Reference Material
Provenance:
Birds 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:
Collection items available for reproduction, but the Archives Center makes no guarantees concerning copyright restrictions. Other intellectual property rights may apply. Archives Center cost-recovery and use fees may apply when requesting reproductions.
