Biographical / Historical
The finding aid for this collection is compiled from individual preliminary lists for each acquisition that were created at or around the time of receipt by the library. The preliminary lists were migrated to comply with current archival descriptive standards and merged into a single file in 2007-2008. As part of the migration, modifications were made to the formatting of individual lists; however, the content of the lists was neither modified nor verified.
As a rule, descriptive information found in the Collection Contents section is drawn in large part from information supplied with the collection and from an initial survey of the contents. Map titles appearing in the contents list below are often based on those provided by the creator or previous custodian. Titles have not been verified against the contents of the files in all cases.
This finding aid may be updated periodically to account for new acquisitions to the collection and/or revisions in arrangement and description.
The dealer listing with detailed description for each map is available in box 1.
