The Jacob Zeitlin Collection includes publications and lecture material written by Zeitlin, newspaper articles about the bookseller
and his bookshops, announcements of exhibits or events held in his honor, and catalogs of the books and art which he dealt
over the years.
Jacob Zeitlin , commonly referred to as "the venerable antiquarian bookseller," was best known for his bookshop on La Cienega
Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. Over the years, Zeitlin dealt manuscripts with Frieda, widow of D.H. Lawrence, written
poetry endorsed by Carl Sandburg, and had his shops designed by Lloyd Wright (son of Frank Lloyd Wright.) He began as a book
peddler in 1925 with only a valise of books, then he moved into a small shop on "bookseller's row," and at the time of his
death in September 1987, he had several shops and international acclaim as a dealer in rare books and art.
