Hugh D. Auchincloss
Middle East Book Collection

Achincloss Collection

Collection Description
Physical Description:
536 items

Scope and Content:
The books have publication dates ranging from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century. Many were published in the Middle East and in some cases are inscribed to the donor by well known authors. The pamphlets and ephemera reflect the current responses by a wide range of organizations to questions pertinent to the Middle East at the time they were published. The ephemera demonstrate Mr. Auchincloss' immediate interests as he tore out pages from current publications ranging from the New York Times to Time Magazine.

Arrangement of the Materials:
The collection, in three parts, consists of:
  • books
  • pamphlets and ephemera
  • periodicals

  • The books are arranged in Library of Congress call number order. The periodicals are arranged alphabetically by title. The pamplets are in boxes arranged alphabetically by agency.
