19 Cover-to-cover collection, 1894/1939
9 Linear feet
The Cover to Cover Collection was developed by Prof. Robert Scholes of the Modernist Journals Project. The goal is to collect and preserve important journals from the Modernist period in complete issues, including covers and advertisements. The impetus for building the Collection was the discovery, as the MJP began searching for issues of journals to include in its digital project, that the vast majority of libraries had routinely stripped covers and advertisements prior to binding, resulting in a gap in the historical record now perceived as significant. It is expected that the Cover to Cover Collection will be added to over time.
