J. Paul Getty Museum Department of Manuscripts Original Enclosures Study Collection, 1983-2005

Scope and Content of Collection

This collection comprises twenty-nine enclosures of varying size and design which originally housed objects from the J. Paul Getty Museum's Department of Manuscripts at the time of acquisition. Twenty-two enclosures contained objects from the Ludwig Catalogue, purchased in 1983, while seven housed manuscripts acquired after the Ludwig accession from 1984 to 2005. The enclosures held by Institutional Archives represent those housings that were originally received by the Department of Manuscripts upon acquisition and were replaced by new housings for conservation reasons. They feature original bindings, inscriptions, and bookplates, and have been retained for study purposes.


The collection is arranged in two categories: Ludwig Catalogue and Manuscripts acquired subsequent to Ludwig accession.
