The Edward Gorey Collection: Books and Ephemera

By Edward Gorey

A collection of books, cards, posters, and other ephemera showcasing the diverse and prolific work of American writer and artist Edward Gorey (1925-2000). Gorey's first book, The Unstrung Harp, was published in 1953; over the course of his career he published dozens of works he authored and illustrated himself, and collaborated with other contributors on dozens more. Beginning in 1953, Gorey also worked for the publisher Doubleday Anchor as an illustrator and typography designer. Over the course of his career, he illustrated more than 200 books for Doubleday Anchor and other publishers.

This collection, assembled by Chris Bready of Baltimore, Maryland, includes the following:

89 primary works, or works authored by Gorey (Group A);

43 secondary works, or works created by Gorey and one other collaborator (Group B);

Two tertiary works, or works in which Gorey was one contributor among many (Group C);

37 works for which Gorey provided typography and/or cover design (Group D); and

A large collection of ephemera (postcards, posters, toys and games, calendars, etc.) bearing Gorey's designs, many created during his lifetime but some released after his death.

Notably, the collection includes a first edition of every primary title written and illustrated by Gorey (with the exception of The Bug Book wrappers edition) and published prior to his death in 2000. Many of these are signed or inscribed. Also present is a generous sample of Gorey's illustration and typography design (including uncredited examples). The condition of the volumes in the collection is generally very good or better. Dust jackets are generally in Good condition or better, often exhibiting light plus to moderate bumping, chipping, or tears and light plus to moderate age toning.
