John Steinbeck Foreign Editions

The Collection

Location: Department of Special Collections, Green Library

Access: Individual titles are listed in Socrates by author and title. To view the entire collection, search Socrates using the subject phrase: "Foreign editions of the works of John Steinbeck." Please page items electronically.

Research Access and Use: Materials in the Department of Special Collections are non-circulating and must be used in the Special Collections' Reading Room in the Cecil H. Green Library. The Reading Room is open 10:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. Photocopies, photographs, and microfilm can be made of some materials in the collections. For more information about the collections and access policies, please contact Special Collections by telephone at (650) 725-1022, by electronic mail at speccollref@stanford.edu or by regular mail at the Department of Special Collections, Stanford University Libraries, Stanford, California 94305-6004.

Content: The collection contains over a thousand books in forty-seven languages, including, among many others, Basque, Finnish, Farsi, Korean, Slovak, Turkish, and Vietnamese. Though in many ways Steinbeck is considered a quintessentially American writer, this collection demonstrates the international reach of his work. Many of the rare and hard-to-find foreign editions of Steinbeck's work brought together here retain their visually interesting dustjackets.
