American Literary Manuscripts, 1960 Compiled MLA
American literary Manuscripts A Checklist of Holdings In Academic, Historical and Public Libraries in the United States, 1960 was compiled by the Modern Language Association of America as a major source in finding Letters, Diaries and Manuscripts--in libraries identified in an 8 page section on How To Use These Listings.
An old but still cherished source, this book was designed to help scholars in their perpetual search for new materials. Holdings have grown in 70 years since publication, but these listings remain the basis for all resources.
An invaluable reference! Should be on the bookshelves of every serious scholar of American literature.
This book is in good condition--a partial book plate, a name on the front flyleaf, a brief note on the back flyleaf, signs of slight discoloration on pages. Clean and clear of other marks otherwise, no tears except on the dust jacket which is getting rather ragged.
This First edition book measures 6 1/4 inches by 9 inches by 1 5/8 inches and has 421 pages.
