Collection note: To view leaf and corresponding notebook page, scroll down to ITEM DESCRIPTION. The Farfel Notebooks document each manuscript and printed leaf that Dr. Farfel acquired over the course of his many years of collecting. There are 13 notebooks total. Each is a simple lined spiral-bound notebook familiar to most students. Dr. Farfel began his first notebook with leaf #1. Thereafter he numbered each leaf he acquired, and wrote in his notebook about it. Thus the notebooks proceed sequentially and provide great insight into Dr. Farfel as a collector and into his collection process. We can see how his interests evolved and expanded over time, identify patterns in his collecting, and so much more. These are a fantastic resource that have yet to be studied by anyone. The type of information Dr. Farfel documented in his notebooks generally includes: his assigned leaf number, date of purchase, place of purchase, dealer purchased from, relevant bibliographic citations, and varying levels of descriptive information. The notebooks also contain inserted material that was not digitized due to rights issues. This material usually consists of photocopies from published bibliographies, research texts, and dealer catalogs. That material can be accessed in-person at the Mahn Center via appointment with Special Collections Librarian Miriam Intrator.
