The Macbeth Gallery records provide almost complete coverage of the gallery's operations from its inception in 1892 to its closing in 1953. Through extensive correspondence files, financial and inventory records, printed material, scrapbooks, reference and research material, and photographs of artists and works of art, the records document all aspects of the gallery's activities, charting William Macbeth's initial intention to lease his store "for the permanent exhibition and sale of American pictures" through over sixty years of success as a major New York firm devoted to American art. The collection measures 131.6 linear feet and dates from 1838 to 1968 with the bulk of the material dating from 1892 to 1953.

- The third of a series of four inventory books, in which Ernst Herzfeld recorded archaeological remains, prehistoric artifacts and antiquities collected or acquired in several cities throughout Persia in 1923 and 1924, as well as 1926 and 1927, 1929, and finally 1932 and 1933.

- Additional information from staff reads: "Herzfeld has diversely applied to each inventory number, which are ranging from 2,032 to 2,884, a place of provenance and/or acquisition; dates; dimensions; sketches; another set of inventory numbers accordant to a specific location; references to museum institutions; physical descriptions; a dinasty and ...

- Additional information from staff reads: "The list of inventory numbers in ledger N-91 reveals a lack of continuity through duplication and missing numbers. In terms of duplication, inventory numbers 2032, 2648, 2671 to 2690, and 2788 have all double entries; in terms of missing numbers, inventory numbers 2136 to 2199 and inventory number 2788 ar...

- "The content of ledger N-91 may tentatively be summarized into six subdivisions: 1) inventory numbers 2032 to 2135, are a continuation of ledger N-89, and appear to be following a long series of entries entered in that ledger. The series starts with inventory number 1859 under which an handwritten note reads: "Shiraz. Jan. [19]24"; 2) inventory n...

- Additional information related to ledger N-91 reads."Two series of handwitten notes on small sheet of papers were found within ledger N-91: 1) within the page starting with inventory number 2357, one small page including list of antiquities and associated prices; 2) within the page starting with inventory number 2810, seven small pages including ...

- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-91 reads, "Inventory of Herzfeld's Collection. Continuation of N-89, Nos. 2032-2884 (No.2032 is used twice, once for another coin in N-89). No prices are entered after 2535. Nos.2261-2511 are headed "Tepe Giyān, Fall 1926-Spring 1927." There are frequent references to photos or sketchbook entries and m...
