[Identification of item] John Steinbeck; a collection of books and manuscripts, the Harry Valentine collection (catalogue
eight): the publisher's archive, M0863, Dept. of Special Collections, Stanford University Libraries, Stanford, Calif.
When the Valentine Steinbeck collection became available for purchase it was a major event to Steinbeck collectors, dealers,
librarians, and Scholars. There was material in it that had not previously been noted in the otherwise comprehensive Goldstone
and Payne BIBLIOGRAPHY, a reference work based on forty years collecting activity by Adrian Goldstone and the University of
Texas at Austin. Morrow's catalogue, because of its detail and the major collection it describes, became a necessary companion
volume to the Goldstone/Payne bibliography. It was designed and printed by Patrick Keagh, the well-known West Coast printer,
and was his first large-scale job.
