Description
The Annotated catalogs for Henry E. Huntington Library exhibitions contains more than 80 catalogs and gallery guides of exhibitions installed from 1929 to 2012 at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. The catalogs were intended for the reference use of the Library's Chief Curator of Rare Books, and the catalogs for the years 1931 to 1975 are extensively annotated with the call numbers for specific copies used for exhibit.
Background
The Huntington Library, established in 1919 in San Marino, California, is an independent research library concentrated in the fields of British and American history, literature, art and the history of science from the 11th century to the present. Because the Library's collections are intended for scholarly use, exhibits are the primary means to share notable holdings with the general public.
Extent
Approximately 86 items in 3 boxes
