Abstract:

The collection primarily consists of ephemera issued by the Press of the Woolly Whale between 1928 and 1941, including prospectuses, booklets, invitations, broadsides, holiday cards, mailing labels, certificates, and programs, among other items, most of which were drawn from the stock of the press when it was donated in 1969 to the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University; books printed by the press were also received but were cataloged separately. Series I, Publications and Production Files, is arranged according to David Pankow's chronological bibliography in Melbert B. Cary, Jr. and the Press of the Woolly Whale (Rochester, 2002). Accompanying some of the titles are production files kept by George Van Vechten Jr., the printer at the Press of the Woolly Whale. These files may include original and carbon typescripts, paper samples, title page designs, dummies, page proofs, corrected galleys, notes, receipts, and some correspondence with Cary, Frederic Goudy, and others. Some files also contain original drawings by Alban B. Butler, Warren Chappell, W. A. Dwiggins, and Fritz Kredel, and a set of stencils used by Dwiggins. Filed at the end of the series is a range of ephemera printed for the American Institute of Graphic Arts and National Orchestral Association.

Series II, Other Papers, contains copies of the Buffalo and Rochester exhibition catalogs, obituaries for George Van Vechten Jr., a holiday card from Paul Wescott with a trade sign design for the press, and notes made by Mary Flagler Cary about press publications.
