Latin American and Iberian Collections at Stanford

Ludwig Lauerhass, Jr. Brazilian Collection

     In early 1998 the Stanford University Libraries acquired the Braziliana Collection of Ludwig Lauerhass, Jr., a distinguished scholar of Latin American bibliography and a bibliophile of Braziliana. The collection was formed over a period of thirty-five years and inlcudes special editions of the works of Euclydes da Cunha, Machado de Assis and Gilberto Freyre. These are in addition to the approximately 4,500 volumes on Brazilian politics and history of the 20th century, a collection of over 1,000 titles on biliography and reference, a collection of travel accounts from the 19th century and approximately 1,500 other rare books.

     The collection on or pertaining to Euclydes da Cunha includes perhaps 200 titles. Virtually everything written by the author is covered, including all major editions of Os Sertões. The highlight of this grouping, and the entire collection, is a manuscript notebook containing 160 pages of his writings.

A search in Socrates (using “Ludwig Lauerhass Jr. Braziliana Collection” in the SUBJECT field) will bring up a listing of the processed portions of this collection.
