Charles Seluzicki Fine and Rare Books records, 1975-2012
Boxes 7 - 17, OP 18 - 19, and A/V 1

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of the administrative records of Charles Seluzicki Fine and Rare Books from 1975-2012 and includes material documenting Seluzicki's roles as collector, dealer, appraiser, and agent. Seluzicki kept alphabetical correspondence files relating to collecting, appraising, and selling rare books and manuscripts. Business correspondents include authors, book-binders, paper suppliers, illustrators, customers, librarians, publishers, bookstore owners, and other printers; correspondence with small businesses is kept by correspondent's last name. In the original alphabetical files, Seluzicki also kept small press correspondence, book lists, catalogues, notes, and printed material together; these have been separated and arranged into small press files for clarity. The files include material from Blocker, Mare and the M. Kimberly Press, Van Vliet; Claire, Janus Press; and numerous others.

Literary correspondence consists of the correspondence between Seluzicki and prominent authors including Susan Bullock, Katherine Dunn, Ursula LeGuin, and John Updike. Topics include both personal and business matters, as Seluzicki published and collected works by many of these correspondents. Many of these writers also sent manuscripts and typescripts to Seluzicki, which are collected separately under writings.

Seluzicki kept separate subject files relating to various artists and literary projects; these files contain correspondence, printed material, promotional material, and notes. He also kept files on author and small business archives for which he served as agent or appraiser. In this role he worked with such authors as Malcolm Crowley, Katherine Dunn, Charles Simic, and W.D. Snodgrass. General printed material consists of clippings, brochures, publication announcements, and various promotional material on topics for which Seluzicki did not keep separate subject files.
