Manuscripts

In the Manuscripts and Archives Division are materials of bibliographic interest such as the Merle Johnson papers, the George Henry Sargent collection, and the Rodd family papers (1826-59). There is also the thirteen-volume manuscript compilation by H.O. Teisberg entitled "Records of Manuscript and Book Auctions in the United States, 1717-1889," which includes references to newspapers and catalogs.
