About the Collection

The collection of Archie Nedelman was received by the library in the summer of 2002. It consisted of 335 hardbound books, 42 softbound, one serial issue, and one pressbook insert for In Cold Blood.

This is a book collection of authors whose work appeared in The New Yorker during the editorship of Harold Ross, 1926-1951. Most all the books are in their dust jackets and many are first editions.

The collection can roughly be divided into five categories:

  • Books, both fiction and non-fiction, by authors who contributed to The New Yorker between 1926 and 1951.
  • Books about Harold Ross
  • A small collection of Armed Services Editions plus some outprints of articles used for advertising purposes.
  • Albums of cartoon by cartoonists whose work appeared in the magazine, 1926-1951.
  • Albums of collections of cartoons compiled by the editors of The New Yorker, plus several albums of the covers of the magazine through this period.
