Perkins (1863-1942) bequeathed not only 6000 exceptional rare books to Scripps College, but a remarkable collection of over 500 autographed letters and documents. Leaving the East Coast on an around the world sea voyage to settle in Los Angeles in about 1904, Mr. Perkins was known as a discriminating, serious, and modest gentleman collector of books of fine printing, illustrated books, fine bindings, and early manuscripts. After meeting the beguiling Scripps College librarian Dorothy M. Drake in 1939, Mr. Perkins determined to give his collection to the College which "now has a fine library, housed in a beautiful building, specially constructed for the purpose it serves." Mr. Perkins wanted his collection used by students. Still housed in the Ella Strong Denison Library and steadily used by students are important resources for the study of the history of the book: cuneiform tablets, papyrus and palm leaf books, thirteenth to sixteenth century illuminated manuscripts, incunabula, and splendid examples of modern presswork from the turn-of-the-[19th] century to the present. Mr. Perkins collected printed books from all centuries in many areas with an emphasis on literature and history. Along with the books are handwritten, signed letters (ALS) and typed and signed documents that illuminate and enhance the study of a variety of disciplines. Here are letters from primarily American and English artists, pioneers, suffragists, jurists, statesmen, poets, scientists, humorists, actresses, essayists, educators, generals, novelists, and musicians. Documents are often on vellum and are signed by Presidents, Kings, Queens and two Popes. Mr. Perkins original collection of correspondence has been augmented by about 600 items in collections and gifts acquired since Mr. Perkins bequest. The Autograph Letter, Signed inventory lists contents of the collection. This digital Perkins Autograph Letter Collection includes not only the texts of the documents, but images of supporting material such as envelopes, bills of sale, transcripts, clippings, articles, biographies, photographs, and other ephemera and association items11ocn145522320mixBank of Columbia (Georgetown, Washington, D.C.)Bank of Columbia RecordsRecords and correspondenceThe Bank of Columbia Records has correspondence and legal and financial papers that document the history of the bank and its depositors.

After seventeen years in Europe, the famous author of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" returned to America and undertook an extensive three-month journey through present-day Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. Describing scenery and inhabitants with an eye to romantic sublimity and celebrating the frontiersman's "secret of personal freedom," Irving published his account of that journey in 1835 as A Tour on the Prairies, an early and distinctly American depiction of the young nation's borderland and its native inhabitants. Irving followed up this eyewitness account with two works that chart the dramatic and tumultuous history of the early American fur trade, very much in the spirit of James Fenimore Cooper's Leather stocking Tales. Astoria (1836) recounts John Jacob Astor's attempt to establish a commercial empire in the Pacific Northwest. The Adventures of Captain Bonneville (1837) is a lively saga of exploration among the mountains, rivers, and deserts of the Far West. While working closely from original documents, Irving wrote also as a mythologist of the vast spaces traversed by "Sindbads of the wilderness." In these three compelling narratives he opened up a crucial region of the American literary imagination influencing such authors as Poe, Hawthorne, and Melville+-+28073568467714ocn000615282book19630.28Terrell, John UptonFurs by AstorHistoryBiography6724ocn000471270book19520.06Daugherty, JamesTrappers and traders of the Far WestHistoryJuvenile worksThe history of John Jacob Astor's Pacific Fur Company, from the land and sea expeditions to found Fort Astoria at the mouth of the Columbia River to the sale of the trading post to the British during the War of 18126557ocn000391769book19290.53Smith, Arthur D.
