ARCHIVE of CARL HERTZOG - PRINTER & BOOK DESIGNER Founder TEXAS WESTERN PRESS
PERSONAL ARCHIVE of CARL HERTZOG - PRINTER and BOOK DESIGNER. Includes Lots of Handwritten Correspondence regarding Printing, Corrected Printing Drafts, Prospectuses, Documents, etc. etc.
The archive of materials is housed in a large, 13x10x8.5 inch, professionally made, cloth covered clamshell box with red leather title label.
Many of the letters are to Steven Schuster, owner of the now long gone Quoin and Lonetree Presses. Schuster was a friend of, and sometime collaborator with, Hertzog. The letters often deal with the intricacies of fine printing, sometimes in general, sometimes related to specific books Hertzog and Schuster were working on together.
Everything is in VERY GOOD condition, just lightly handled, clean, legible, bright.
A wonderful collection of materials related to this important Texas printer and Book Designer.
About CARL HERTZOG (from the University of Texas El Paso website):
******Carl Hertzog, b.1902 d.1984, was a renowned Texas printer, book designer, and typographer. He founded the Texas Western Press in 1952. Even when Texas Western became the University of Texas at El Paso, the press retained its original name because of the distinguished reputation that it had built under Hertzog.
Carl Hertzog's contributions to UTEP are commemorated by the Carl Hertzog Award for Excellence in Book Design, awarded every two years. His papers and much of his personal book collection are housed at the UTEP Library Special Collections.
Hertzog was awarded honorary doctorates in literature by Baylor University in 1967 and by Southern Methodist University in 1971.******
