Librairie Dorbon-aîné Records, 1894-1954.

Correspondence, handwritten and typed manuscripts, proofs of creative works, music manuscripts, printed material, and financial, legal and publicity records document the work of bookseller and publisher Librairie Dorbon-aîné. The bulk of the collection is comprised of Series II. Works by Authors, which contains manuscripts of authors published by Librairie Dorbon-aîné. All stages of the publication process, as evidenced by the presence of original manuscripts, proofs with corrections, and final proofs, are well documented for such works as Aspects sentimentaux du front Anglais (1917) and L'Amphitryon d'aujourd'hui: Introduction à la vie gourmande (1936). Also present are proofs of an unpublished article detailing the founding of Librairie Dorbon-aîné by Louis Dorbon and a few pieces of correspondence from Marc Pincherle, an associate of Librairie Dorbon-aîné. Series III. constitutes the smallest portion of the papers but provides crucial information about the internal workings of the Librairie. Included in this series are original designs for the Librairie Dorbon-aîné logo and a dossier of subscription requests for Dorbon-aîné's elite book club, Les bibliophiles fantaisistes.
