Descripció:
Herbert D. and Ruth Schimmel Rare Book Library

The Zimmerli owns more than 3,000 rare books and journals focused on the period between 1875 and 1914 in Paris. Landmarks of book illustration in the collection include the first French edition of Goethe’s Faust (1828) with lithographs by Eugène Delacroix, Edouard Manet’s illustrations for Stephane Mallarme’s first translation into French of Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven (Le Corbeau, 1875), and Eugène Grasset’s Quatre Fils d’Aymon (Four Sons of Aymon, 1883). A major resource for primary material on Montmartre, Parisian popular culture, and Japonisme during the fin de siècle, the collection features complete or near-complete runs of the most important journals of the period. Also among the significant holdings is Le Mur, a unique “journal” of original drawings and writings created by the artists who frequented the Cabaret des Quat’z’Arts.
