1Title:  How to weed your attic: getting rid of the junk without destroying history   
 Creator:  Dow, Elizabeth H. | Cockrell, Lucinda Poole, 1957- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "How To Weed Your Attic: Getting Rid Of Junk Without Destroying History" provides answers to the question: When someone dies or it's time to move - or just clean out the attic, garage, or basement - what papers and other things should we save for the sake of history and what can we safely toss? After reading this book, you can comfortably clean out your attic - or office, garage, basement, cupboards - with confidence that you're not tossing out historically valuable (or invaluable) things, and that you will not ask your local museum to take things that really belong in a thrift store, junk yard, or recycling center. This book includes a brief description of the basics for preserving materials the reader wants to keep and references sources for more detail. It also recognizes that the reader may not want to keep stuff that clearly has historical value. For those readers, the authors describe how to donate materials to a cultural repository. In broad strokes, they explain how repositories differ, what the repository will want to know about the stuff you're offering, where an appraiser and/or tax advisor fits into the process, and what the reader can expect the repository to do and not do. -- back cover.

4Title:  Eddie Cass collection of traditional drama material, circa 1990-2014   
 Creator:  Cass, Eddie 
 Notes:  This collection consists of 22 bound volumes of photocopies of articles, periodicals, play scripts, manuscript essays, etc. relating to all aspects of traditional drama. The volumes, collectively titled "Traditional Drama" were bound and sub-titled as follows: Volumes I and II: Miscellaneous; Volumes III, IV, and V: Rochdale Plays; Volume VI: The Middleton Play; Volume VII: Manchester; Volumes VIII and IX: The Bury Play; Volume X: The Revesby Play; Volume XI: Chapbook Texts; Volume XII: Miscellaneous; Volume XIII: Seven Champions of Christendom; Volume XIV: Miscellaneous; Volume XV: Alderley Mummers; Volume XVI: Sword Plays; Volume XVII and XVIII: Southport Mummers; Volume XIX: Lancashire; Volume XIX: Helm at Keele; Volume XXI: Alex Helm-Miscellaneous material; and Volume XXII: Miscellaneous. When a table of contents existed, it was listed under each volume--researchers should be aware that the order of the lists is the order in which the contents are bound. Researchers should also be aware that almost all material is reprographic copies and not original material. Occasionally, there are copies of photographs and brochures in the volumes, but the overwhelming bulk of material is copied. Therefore, the dates of the material are significantly later than the dates of the original content which ranges from as early as 1878 (although much is undated). These volumes were probably compiled by Eddie Cass and certainly came from his library. The topical focus of the volumes is strongly tied to his studies and probably aided him in his own research.

Imprints from other European cities represented include Cologne, Geneva, and Lyon. Most of the decorative woodcuts are boarders and tail-pieces. Some of the cropped title pages are printed in red and black. A complete bifolia entitled Nuova provisione dell'archivo publlico Fiorentino dated 1585 is included. Several items are inscribed with the signature of Caroli Peruzzi.

6Title:  Alfred Hermann Gumaer theater and music scrapbooks, 1877-1937   
 Creator:  Gumaer, A. H. (Alfred Hermann), 1873-1945 
 Notes:  This collection consists of eleven scrapbooks dating from 1877 to 1937 (many of the scrapbooks overlap in their dates of coverage). Each scrapbook includes programs and playbills from performances in Philadelphia, Jersey City, New York, London, Paris, and other cities. In addition to the programs and playbills, the scrapbooks also include the occasional clipping or music/theater publication. The programs and playbills included in these scrapbooks are primarily for theatrical performances such as plays, musicals, and operas, and for music performances like orchestral and band concerts, piano recitals, and glee club concerts. Programs for ballets, dances, and readings are also present. Some of the scrapbooks in this collection contain only materials related to either theater or music, while other volumes include a variety of performance types. The materials in the scrapbooks are primarily text-based documents, however some of them do include illustrations and photographs or drawn portraits. Programs will sometimes include decoration on the front and photographs of the actors within. Additionally, some programs have advertisements, and these frequently include photos or illustrations. These scrapbooks collect material from a 60-year time period and thousands of performances. While hundreds of theaters are represented, certain theaters appear more frequently, including Chestnut Street Opera House, Broad Street Theatre, Walnut Street Theatre, the Academy of Music, Knickerbocker Theatre, Lyric Theatre, Forrest Theatre, Royal Opera House, and the Théâtre National de l'Opéra-Comique. Similarly, the names of countless performers appear in the programs and playbills included in these scrapbooks. Some names only appear once or twice, while others recur frequently. Some notable names that appear in these scrapbooks are Maude Adams, Ethel Barrymore, Edwin Booth, Lew Fields, Kathleen Howard, William Ingersoll, Henry Irving, [Alla] Nazimova, Fritzi Scheff, and Otis Skinner. The scrapbooks in this collection are organized chronologically. As previously noted, there is overlap between the volumes, sometimes with materials from one year appearing in as many as four or five scrapbooks.

9Title:  Renshū Kantai en’yō kōkai no omoide, 1937   
 Creator:  Norio, Maeda | Japanese Naval Collection 
 Notes:  This scrapbook contains 100 photographs depicting the 1937 cruise under the command of Vice-Admiral Mineichi Koga.The scrapbook itself appears to have been produced commercially for specific use by members of the Renshū Kantai. The cover’s title has been debossed with a title in gold leaf and features other debossed decorative elements including an anchor and a chrysanthemum over the stylized image of the rising sun. The scrapbook contains an initial explanatory leaf extolling five directives of a soldier ( seikun gokajō 聖訓五箇條). The leaves of the scrapbook proper are of a heavy black paper with leaves of thin translucent paper in between each to protect the contents of each page.The photographs span locations throughout the cruise to which the two ships, Yakumo and Iwate traveled. Newspaper clippings from colonial newspapers and luggage labels from hotels are also inserted. One souvenir postcard depicting the geographic itinerary of the cruise is also pasted in. Many of the photographs are captioned with white ms. pencil. Some sections of text appear to have been erased intentionally. A portion of these redacted captions remain legible.Several photographs pasted into in this scrapbook, as well as images from the newspaper clippings, are also reproduced in the corresponding cruise book Shōwa Jūninendo Renshū Kantai junkō kinen. The editorial relationship between these publications is not apparent.On the inner back cover (upside down from the rest of the book), former owner Norio Maeda has listed his surname and rank, his own scrapbook title of Enko Kinen Shashincho, and the date Showa 12-nen 6-gatsu 6-nichi [June 6, 1937]. This was one day before the cruise’s departure from Yokosuka, suggesting that this item was acquired by Maeda immediately before departing for Southeast Asia. Maeda was somewhat emphatic about his ownership of this book, having stamped this endpaper 33 times with his surname stamp (inkan) in red ink.
