Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

The first series consists of portraits, which are arranged in the sequence used to describe them in the printed catalog of the Cotsen Potter collection. That is, they are arranged by portrait subject, and by date within each subject group. Although this mode of classification has the disadvantage of separating groups of images that were made on the same occasion with different subjects, every effort has been made to note such cross-references in the database entries. Photographs of animals are included in this series.

Arrangement

Arranged by subject and within subject by date.
