[The Henry E. Huntington Library.]
Abraham, Terry
The biographical sketch of Henry E. Huntington includes a description of the establishment of the Huntington Library and the purpose and scope of its collection. Although this is a free and public library, its use is restricted to qualified scholars having legitimate research needs. Photographic techniques were developed at the Huntington Library in order to make the collection available to scholars who were unable to travel to San Marino. Photography serves to preserve original copies of manuscripts which are in the process of disintegration or from which the writing is slowly disappearing and it saves wear and tear on the documents by reader use. The use of microfilm and microprints is compared and photographic analysis of a document is discussed. (Other papers from this Institute are available as LI 002962-LI 002966 and LI 002968 through LI 002976). (NH)
