Biographical Note

This collection was donated to the Max Reinhardt Archive of Binghamton University’s Special Collections in October, 1983 by Arthur A. Cohen (1928 - 1986), American scholar, author, publisher, art critic, theologian, and dealer in rare books. The collection was originally formed by the exiled bookseller “Mr. Meyer” of Rochester, one of the founding members of the Maximilian-Gesellschaft, an organization founded in 1911 aiming to promote book science, book design, and bibliophilia in general. As is general practice and as it was not part of original purchase of the Max Reinhardt Collection, this collection remains a separate entity.
