Eric Caren of the Caren Archives offers: A tale of two collections = over 1 million historical paper items

3cf9cefb-bca3-4743-8369-b5aad9f57df5

Eric Caren, the ephemera master-collector has done many unusual things in his life.  He was collecting ephemera long before most institutions, dealers and collectors were paying attention to it.  And newspapers. He built a collection that later was sold to the Newseum in Washington as the cornerstone of its holdings.  In more recent times he has been pioneering ephemera sales at Swann and later Bonhams and today he is at it again; marketing two archives of, to quote him, “amazing, amazing” material.

 

So what is he selling now?  Two archives - One as Exclusive Agent to highest offer and the other as Owner to the first acceptable offer.

 

#1 is an estimated million photographs and negatives from the Brown Brothers archives.  Brown Brothers was the first stock photos agency and they were in business from the turn of the 20th century (established in NYC in 1904!) to mid-century.  As well they bought older images – going back another thirty years – to make their inventory more complete.  So what kind of images is there?  For starters there are 7,000 boxes of images.

 

There are, in no particular order, immigrant images, African American and minorities are well represented, the history of transportation, the history of the Industrial Revolution and The Tech Age; Architecture and the growth of sky scrapers, night scenes of the Wrigley Gum factories, Marilyn Monroe, early images of the New York Yankees when they were the Highlanders [1905], images of the Polo Grounds with people sitting in trees to watch the New York Giants [baseball].  There are boxes of immigrant images at Ellis Island and the entire history of the New York Theatre from highbrow to Vaudeville, movies, nickelodeons and opera.  There are also photos from the Carpathia relating to the sinking of the Titanic.  Of course the wealthy and famous have their own boxes – the Vanderbilts, Morgans, Carnegies and Rockefellers who were all wealthy and the singularly accomplished – Harry Houdini and Mark Twain just two examples. On the other end of the luck spectrum there are multiple boxes marked poor children. Hindenburg explosion images are not that hard to find. Ones with the coffins draped with both Nazi and American flags are. Charred body images didn’t make it into the newspapers but they are here. Most wars are thoroughly covered from the late 1800’s through the Korean War.

 

So what is the price?  Every photo and negative goes along with whatever legal protections can be conveyed by the sellers that are descendants of the Brown Brothers families:  offers start at a modest reserve of $5,000,000 and Caren has already had a number of appointment viewings!

 

And then there is another archive; this one has been assembled over decades by Mr. Caren.  It includes over 200,000 items including newspapers, broadsides, manuscripts and documents, posters, letters, photography, sheet music, New York City checks from the 1790s to the Civil War, sheet music and patents and of course postcards.  For this one Mr. Caren will listen to offers but has a whisper number that begins with a ten.  Mr Caren struggles to describe it and then recently offered “Ephemera, from Columbus to the Counter Culture and Computer Age.”  Every event in the last 5 centuries can be found here in at least one format. Some things like the Titanic can be found in everything from a letter from a millionairess survivor blaming Ismay to newspapers and photos, etc.

 

HIGHLIGHTS ARE TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION HERE but include such gems as a Bible carried and annotated with news of the first major battle of The American Revolution- Bunker Hill and a manuscript dedication to God for keeping him alive throughout the day. In original boards, this thick two testament bible was as important to the Patriot as the gun he carried and wrote about on the day of the Battle of Bunker Hill (June 17, 1775). The first Treaty between The United States and China signed by President Polk in ink, an early printing of The Bill of Rights and an early unrecorded printing of The Emancipation Proclamation, thousands of rare newspapers not owned by even The American Antiquarian Society. Western, federal period, Union and Confederate issues abound, broadsides dating back to the Defeat of The Spanish Armada in 1588 (illustrated) and The Great Fire of London 1666 (also illustrated), pioneer material on transportation and communication, Native American photos, newspapers and ephemera, thousands of cherry picked news photographs are included too.

Caren hopes that the material can be kept intact and that he will not have to sell it overseas. “There is a lot of money here in the US and someone can step up and for a fraction of the price of an Andy Warhol, donate this collection for education to a major University or National museum.  Caren has some who desperately want but cannot afford it and he cannot afford to donate it himself. “If I make the money it will be poured back into buying up our history and heritage and when I am no longer around to buy and sell; everything will be liquidated and almost all of the funds will go to St. Jude’s Hospital to help children with cancer.”  Caren adds “I am proud of my collecting legacy including The Newseum, a dozen books, hundreds of thousands of reprint compilations, etc but I am proudest of how I will exit this world!”

Caren is not known to mince words or pull punches. “Surely there is someone amongst the 1% who cares about what I have done who wants to present it to the country or build on it themself!”

The Brown Brothers Archive has been subject to a final date to bid and that date has been December 31st.  Recently this deadline was extended to January 14th to permit institutions and investors to further study the material.  Certainly collectors will be interested and commercial agencies too have already expressed interest.  Institutions are also natural owners and representatives of this category are considering a purchase.

 

As to news and making a splash an AP piece about these items went International to as far away places as both Chinas and New Zealand.

 

Eric Caren insisted on adding the following "I have supported AE since Bruce came up with this monumental task and I am always honored when AE covers my activities. I am proud to be a member of the Grolier Club and a former Director of The Ephemera Society of America, a former member of AAS and ABAA and a current nominee to the National Press Club and of course a consultant to The Newseum, but I am at 55 prouder to be associated with people who have devoted their time and passion to this field and Bruce and AE are high on my list of proud associations!" "And damn it Bruce do not edit this out as I do not patronize anyone … my thoughts, actions and words are always heartfelt...leave this in or I will outbid you on the next Hudson Valley (shared passion) item that comes up in the rooms.”
