New guide to the Latin American ephemera collections at Princeton

Dear colleagues,

I recently finished putting together this guide and thought that it would be of interest to some of you:

It lists by country and subject area all of the collections of Latin American ephemera that the Princeton University Library has developed since the late 1960s (approximately 350) and links to item level finding aids or catalog records that for the most part describe in considerable detail the contents of the collections.

The Latin American Library at Tulane University is pleased to announce the publication of the collection guide for the Spratling-Taxco Collection:

The Spratling-Taxco Collection consists of original silver design drawings for jewelry, sketches for book illustrations, photographs, taped and videotaped interviews of silver designers and silversmiths, prints portfolios, two watercolor paintings, and other material documenting the work of William Spratling and other major figures in Mexico’s modern silver and crafts industry, including Chato, Coco, Miguel, and Antonio Castillo (Los Castillo), Margot van Voorhies Carr (d. 1985), Frederick W. Davis (1880-1961), and Sigfrido Pineda (b. 1929), from the 1930s to the present. For access, contact the Director of the Latin American Library at
