Title
Print Collection, 1740-1940
ID
MS 00016
Extent
5.5 Linear Feet
Scope and Contents
Prints and engravings removed from 18th century but mostly 19th century books or periodicals.  Most prints cannot be matched with the book from which it came or the date.  The location of the subject matter of each print or engraving is the primary criterion used in the organization of the collection.
Arrangement
These prints and engravings are loosely organized into four series.  Series 1 is organized by the surname of the person depicted in the print.  Series 2 is organized by the locality where the subject matter is located.  Series 3 is organized by subject matter. Series 4 is organized by the name of a book or periodical if a substantial amount of material for a single book or periodical remained together.
