Finding aid for the Elizabeth Roth research papers on festivals, 1956-2006
Series I. Notebooks on festival books, 1957-2006 6.27 linear feet (30 boxes)
Series I comprises draft entries for a bibliography of festival books, assembled in notebooks dedicated to France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and other countries. In these notebooks, Roth compares copies of festival books held in institutional and private collections, and by book dealers. Bibliographic differences are noted, such as paginations, illustrations, dedications, editions and printings. The sections on Germany and Italy also include catalog entries for festival books in the Spencer Collection at the NYPL.
Festival books in other countries are also surveyed, although in less depth: Austria (1723-1880), Belgium (1853-1856), Canada (1810), Denmark (1588-1749), England (1493-1937), Mexico (1760-1849), Norway (undated), Peru (1619), Poland (1669), Portugal (1582-1862), Russia (1742-1899), Spain (1513-1917), Sweden (1663-1845), and United States (1825-1913).
Arrangement
The series is arranged alphabetically by country and then in chronological order within each country. As per Roth's arrangement, festivals in Brussels and Antwerp held prior to the creation of Belgium (1830) are filed under the Netherlands, whereas festivals held in these cities after 1830 are filed under Belgium. Several countries, such as Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, were grouped together by Roth, and these groupings are filed according to their original order in the archive. Correspondence in these notebooks has been left in situ. For further correspondence, see Series III.
