Description

Scope and Contents

The Andrew Alpern Collection of Edward Gorey Materials comprises materials by and about the writer and artist Edward Gorey, created between 1954 and 2019, and collected by Alpern from the 1970s through the 2010s. The collection includes materials associated with many of Gorey's professional interests and activities. These include the publication and marketing of Gorey's illustrated books and related ephemera, Gorey's work for theatre and for performing arts organizations, press coverage, and Gorey's publications in periodicals. There is also a small amount of original artwork by Gorey.

The collection also documents the exhibition and sale of Gorey's work to collectors such as Alpern during Gorey's lifetime and after his death. Many—if not the majority—of the items in the collection were purchased by Alpern through the New York City independent bookstore Gotham Book Mart. Receipts and other documentation of these purchases are included in the collection. A small number of auction catalogs, promotional ephemera for exhibitions, and materials related to the Edward Gorey House and the Edward Gorey Charitable Trust are also present.

  • Series I: Original artwork, 1976-1986

    Series I contains etchings, collographs, silkscreen prints, and one original drawing by Edward Gorey. The series also includes three photographic prints of Edward Gorey posing with cats. Some items in the series were formerly framed. Gorey did not select the frames, which were removed for preservation purposes.

  • Series II: Publishing, exhibitions, and sales, 1963-2018

    Series II includes books, Christmas cards and postcards, and other printed ephemera produced by Edward Gorey; various items produced to promote Gorey's printed works; and documentation of their sale to Alpern and other collectors. In addition, the series contains a small amount of printed ephemera produced by Gorey for third parties. Finally, it includes promotional materials for exhibitions of Gorey's work.

    Much of the material in this series was produced by or sold at Gotham Book Mart, a New York City bookstore and gallery that sold much of Gorey's work. The limited edition Christmas cards were printed by Albondocani Press, a private press run by George Bixby, which also produced several of Gorey's books.

  • Series III: Performing arts, circa 1954-2016

    Series III contains materials related to Gorey's work in the performing arts, including theatre, music, dance, and television. It includes items associated with Gorey's work on performing arts productions, notably the Tony award-winning 1977 Broadway revival of Dracula (for which Gorey designed sets and costumes) and the television series Mystery!, as well as various other works written by Gorey. It also includes work created by Gorey to promote other performing arts organizations, such as the New York City Ballet, Cape and Islands Chamber Music, and the Metropolitan Opera. In addition, there are a small number of audio recordings with packaging designed by Gorey, and a poster and program for a 2016 play about Gorey's life.

  • Series IV: Clippings and press, 1954-2019

    Series IV contains clippings and full volumes of periodicals with stories about Edward Gorey, or which include work (both written works and illustrations) by Gorey.

  • Series V: Edward Gorey House and Charitable Trust, 2000-2018

    Series V contains promotional materials for the Edward Gorey House, Gorey's home in Massachusetts, which became a museum after Gorey's death in 2000. It also includes licensed calendars, prints, and other items produced by the Edward Gorey Charitable Trust. Finally, it contains a pendant worn by Gorey, which was left to Andrew Alpern in Gorey's will.
