Abstract:

Correspondence and clippings of articles by Andrews and others concerning his interest in rare books and his publishing activities. Correspondents include individuals, libraries, and his publishers, including Dodd, Mead and Co. and the journals The Bookman and Modern art. Also included are three books privately published by Andrews in the 1860s and two written or compiled by him, as well as book announcements and advertisements for his own books and those of others; Library of Congress copyright certificates for his books; and miscellaneous meeting announcements. Also ALS and signed carte de visite from French artist J.G. Vibert and cartes de viste from three other 19th century French artists. Two resolutions on his death, hand lettered and bound, are included: one from the Continental Assurance Company and the other from the Society of Iconophiles. A copy of the Poems of Fitz-Greene Halleck (1847) bound in red morocco with Andrew's bookplate is of special interest, as Andrews gave personal support to Halleck during his later years. A collection of twelve re-strikes from the of the original copper plates for engravings of the twelve apostles by artist Hans Sebald Beham, given to Andrews by John Woodbury of Boston, completes the collection.
