Norman Friedman Rudyard Kipling Collection|
McGill University, Rare Books and Special Collections Library
Kipling, Rudyard; English literature
The nucleus of the collection was given to McGill's Redpath Library in 1946 by the Montreal book collector Norman H. Friedman. To this material was added the library's existing holdings of Kipling. Since that time, additions have been made by purchase.
The collection includes first, early, variant, and collected editions of Rudyard Kipling's works. As well, single issues of periodicals containing articles by Kipling are in the collection. Other material includes scrapbooks of clippings by and about Kipling; some secondary works, including bibliographies; seven autograph letters; and the manuscript of Traffics and discoveries (1904).
1,541 books, periodical articles, newspaper clippings; 1 serial currently received.
The collection has been briefly catalogued and access is by main entry in the McGill Union Catalogue and the Rare Book Department special collections card catalogue. Uncatalogued material is also accessible.
The collection is open to the public upon registration with the Department and the presentation of a suitable piece of identification. For further information visit: http://www.library.mcgill.ca/rarebook/cube.htm.
