Scope and Content
The collection consists of 121 items that have been cataloged to Special Collections. The collection includes volumes of poetry written by Cid Corman, volumes of poetry by other authors that were edited or translated by Cid Corman and two series of the periodical Origins, edited by the poet. All of the volumes have been classed under Corman’s LC classification number (PS3553.O65) thereby allowing all items to be shelved together. Also, the bibliographic records in the Healey Library catalog of all of the titles in the collection include the collection note and can be searched by the collection title as a keyword search.
In addition to the cataloged monographs and serials, the collection contains a small number of broadsides, publicity material and miscellaneous publications. These can be found in one folder and are in the document case adjacent to the published works. Several of the published works are very small volumes and are stored in the document case. These are noted on the enclosed title list.
