Records. Series VI., Editorial Department Files, 1915-1984 (bulk 1948-1978).

This series consists of selected files maintained by the editorial offices of Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. Containing internal forms and correspondence, it highlights numerous aspects of the publishing process. Subseries A.: Contract Data Sheets. This subseries contains the internal forms, called contract data sheets, that consolidated an author's contract and sales records, highlighting rights, contract options, translations, and royalties. While these single sheets make up the bulk of the subseries, occasionally other forms such as reprint contract sheets, contract proposals, and internal memoranda have been attached for reference. Subseries B.: Foreign Rights. These files contain correspondence and internal forms relating to the publication of Knopf books in other countries. Most of these files consist of correspondence from foreign publishers asking Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. for the right to publish a particular title in their country. While some folders contain letters from many different publishers, others follow the lengthy negotiation process for foreign rights between Knopf and a particular publisher. Subseries C.: Manuscript Records. This subseries is made up of the internal forms called "white sheets" by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., and pertains only to manuscripts accepted by the firm. These manuscript record forms were attached to every incoming manuscript, to document how the manuscript arrived, its original title, and the date of its initial submission. The standard form included such information as the author's name, manuscript title and form (whether typescript, proofs, or sheets), name of the person submitting it, contract information, a list of the manuscript's readers, and space for remarks by those readers. In a few cases the white sheets were attached to internal memoranda, correspondence, contract proposals, or publishing summaries. Subseries D.: Reject Files. This largest subseries contains correspondence with rejected authors and/or their agents. Most consist of single contacts with aspiring authors who were never published. This correspondence generally contains an introductory letter from the author (or sometimes an agent) describing the manuscript, with a carbon negative reply from the firm. While most of the correspondence is routine, the subseries' chief importance derives from the known authors that Knopf rejected and the early appearance of authors who would later go on to prominence. Of particular interest is the appearance in this subseries of established Knopf authors such as Mildred Cram, Erna Fergusson, Yukio Mishima, and Elizabeth Taylor, showing that Knopf was reluctant to publish inferior works from even the best known of its list. Subseries E.: Rejection Sheets. This subseries consists of the manuscript "white sheet" forms for books rejected by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. These white sheets complement subseries D, though they represent only manuscripts actually submitted. The reject sheets are particularly interesting because a substantial minority of submitted manuscripts that were rejected by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. went on to be published elsewhere. As in the manuscript records in Subseries C, frank narrative reports of these rejected works by the manuscript readers and editors are present. Subseries F.: [Translations]. This small subseries contains a loose assortment of files pertaining mainly to translations of Spanish and Portuguese writers. The subseries documents the firm's growing interest in the publication of Latin American writers in the 1960s. Most of the files contain correspondence or internal documentation relating to writers and translators in which the company was interested. The subseries is strengthened by a number of annotated lists of current writers and translators working in the area, offering an overview of Latin American scholarship in the 1960s.
