Hide Profile

The New York financier and collector Carl Howard Pforzheimer (1879-1957) began acquiring materials documenting the English Romantic poets in the 1920s. After his death, his various collections became an asset of the Carl and Lily Pforzheimer Foundation, Inc. In 1986, the Foundation gave to the New York Public Library those items pertaining to the Romantics (including ca. 12,000 printed items, cataloged separately and searchable in the NYPL catalogue), and other tangential material, along with an endowment that provides for the Collection's continuing growth.

From the description of Carl H. Pforzheimer collection of Shelley and his circle : manuscripts, 1772-1925 (bulk 1780-1850). (New York Public Library). WorldCat record id: 144652039
