The Exhibition brochure contains a number of illustrations and photographs in text of Steinbeck books in the exhibition. Adrian Homer Goldstone, 1897-1977, grew up in the area around Monterey, California. An avid book collector all of his life, he is particularly well know (sic) for his bibliographies of Arthur Machen and John Steinbeck, both of which were published through the University of Texas. While working on the Steinbeck bibliography with research librarians at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, he also worked out the sale and gift of part of his extensive Steinbeck library to the Center. The rest of his collection went to institutions in California. ________________________________________ Scope and Contents The Adrian Goldstone Collection, 1922-1977, is composed primarily of correspondence, which often includes typescripts and revised copies of works in progress, much of it relating to his research on Edwin B. Hill and John Steinbeck, as well as his interest in Rockwell Kent. The collection is organized into four series: Series I. Personal Correspondence and Papers, 1950-1977 (.5 box); Series II. Edwin B. Hill, 1965-1973 (2 folders); Series III. John Steinbeck, 1966-1975 (1.5 boxes); and Series IV. Rockwell Kent, 1922-1975 (1 box). Most of the material in the third series was previously considered part of the John Steinbeck collection and all of the material in the fourth series was previously considered part of the Rockwell Kent collection. Incoming and outgoing correspondence is interfiled throughout the collection. The Personal Correspondence and Papers series holds letters written between Goldstone and various friends and fellow book collectors. Correspondents include Nathan Bengis, J. Rives Childs, and others. Individual correspondents are listed in the Index of Correspondents at the end of this guide. The Edwin B. Hill series contains letters and book lists that chronicle Goldstone's search for information on Hill. His correspondence with Carl Hertzog and Gertrude Muir was particularly productive. With the exception of the Hertzog letters, Goldstone's correspondence on this topic is arranged chronologically rather than alphabetically. Individual correspondents are listed in the Index of Correspondents at the end of this guide. Great addition to a Steinbeck collection. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
