Abstract:

This collection contains Smith's correspondence and records, 1887-1931. Several letters were addressed to his daughter and assistant, Amy G. Smith ( - ) following his death in 1929. The majority of correspondents were clients ordering book-plates to be designed and engraved by Smith in Boston. Their letters contain detailed design suggestions, drawings, and questions concerning projected costs and printing procedures. Smith's clients included several notable book and engravings collectors, such as Joseph Manuel Andreini (1850-1932) and William Loring Andrews (1837-1920) of New York, Susan Janney Allen ( - ) of Moorestown, N.J., Ruthven Deane (1851-1934) of Chicago, Ill., and Harry Worcester Smith (1865-1945) and Dr. Charles Lemuel Nichols (1851-1929) of Worcester, Mass. Also numbered among Smith's clients were many college libraries, public libraries, historical and research societies, publishing houses, bookstores, and collectors' clubs, such as the Club of Odd Volumes and the Society of Iconophiles.

The collection also consists of business correspondence from editors of journals concerning publication of Smith's book-plate lists and designs, e.g.--Harry Alfred Fowler (1889- ), editor of The Ex Libran and The Miscellany of Kansas City, Mo. Box 1 contains a record book kept by Smith with brief entries describing correspondence concerning book-plate orders received by him during the period 1899 to 1928.
