M-111 Series 2: Other Pamphlets

The bequest of Peck's Library must have been a great boon to the Mercantile in the 1850's, a time of rapid growth and collection development. The Reference Librarian of the Mercantile Library of 1940 and 1950, Elizabeth Tindell, and Elizabeth Kirchner, Head Librarian from 1965-1986, both have recently commented, on being interviewed, that various bound pamphlet volumes were almost entirely composed of Peck-owned titles. These materials were examined in the process of constructing this list of Other Pamphlets. Many of these materials fall within date ranges and possess remnants of trimmed or complete, untrimmed Peck signatures and other inscriptions, as well as previous pamphlet numbering marks in what reasonably appear to be Peck's hand. These materials, as Appendix 1 materials, await full bibliographic description and comparison studies for further verification of provenance, but have been included based on internal C1 evidence and careful hypothesis, now, as part of the original Peck bequest. Each is arranged alphabetically by the first important word of the title or creating organization and numbered consecutively. This number is carried over to the first leaf of text (verso) and the non-acidic enclosure are housed in boxed groupings. These pamphlets were bound with a few non-Peck related items (i.e. those dated after 1858 have been removed; these had been added at binding for their related content, obviously.)
