2Title:  "Nature" series of portraits of scientific worthies   
 Creator:   
 Publication:  Macmillan & Co, London?], [between 1890 and 1920?] 
 Notes:  Title from portfolio. Portraits made to accompany Nature magazine's occasional series on various "scientific worthies". The exact dates of this series have not been determined, but the accompanying portraits were issued separately from at least 1890 to 1920. Cf. "NATURE PORTRAITS. A Series of Portraits of Scientific Worthies engraved by JEENS and others in Portfolio. India Proofs, 5s. each. [Portfolio separately, 6s.]" --Catalogue of books published by Macmillan and Co. Bedford Street, Covent Garden, London, November, 1890, p. 45. and an advertisement appearing in Nature, v. 107 (March 1921-August 1921) offering the collected plates for sale. The CSmH portraits are identified by ms. pencil annotations on verso. The plates are unnumbered. Annotation on no. [18] is illegible: "Kingsley"? or "Kolliker"? No scientist named Kingsley is given in the list of scientists appearing in the 1921 advertisement, but the portrait does not resemble available portraits of Albert Kolliker, 1817-1905, who is listed.

20Title:  Adalbert Riedl collection of prayer and song leaflets, 1746-1929, undated   
 Creator:  Riedl, Adalbert, 1898-1978 
 Notes:  The Adalbert Riedl collection contains nearly 700 titles, mostly prayers and religious songs in leaflet or chapbook form. The inclusion of a number of duplicates or slight variants brings the total number of pieces to about 800. The bulk of the collection was printed in the 19th century. There are also pieces from the 18th century and some from the early-to-mid 20th century. The pieces are primarily small format printed works, ranging from a single sheet to multiple pages, and many include printed or engraved illustrations. Additionally, there is a collection of 28 printed leaflets bound into a single volume (Sammelband) and a small number of manuscripts in German Kurrentschrift. The items are primarily in the German language, many printed in Fraktur, and a small number are in Hungarian, as well as Croatian, Czech, Slovakian, and Slovenian. It is not clear whether the collection's organization comes from Riedl or from a University of Pennsylvania librarian after the collection was purchased in 1969. Copy of a 1970 letter to Riedl from a Penn bibliographer states "We would also be glad for any guide you wish to give about best organization and assortment of the material. It is neat and in good condition. The three categories which appear obvious are (1) Gebete [prayers], (2) Lieder [songs], and Miscellaneous. Are there any further divisions or subdivisions which you would like to advocate?" There is no evidence of a response from Riedl. Nonetheless, this organization has been maintained, as has its subdivision into works with known place of publication; works with date but no known place of publication; and works with neither date nor place of publication. Following the divisions of prayers, songs, and miscellaneous, is the collection of bound leaflets and the materials in manuscript. The known places of publication include cities throughout the former Austrian-Hungarian Empire and German lands, including today's Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Northern Italy, the Netherlands, and Slovakia. The content is primarily religious and devotional, with a smaller amount of secular material as well. Marks, smudges, wear and remnants of binding stitches remain as evidence that many of these pieces were once bound into larger collections of leaflets. The condition of the pieces ranges from nearly pristine to heavily damaged; flabby paper with high rag content to that which is highly acidic and brittle. Some pieces have inscriptions.
