E. A. Yeran: Pioneering Armenian-American Printer and Publisher, Part 2 ~ Treasures of NAASR's Mardigian Library
Part 1 of our Library Treasures feature on the work of Edward Arakel Yeran presented books published by his Yeran press through ca. 1915. Part 2 continues and brings to a conclusion this work.
Among the striking aspects of Yeran Press is the diversity of the publications. Reference works, historical writings, literature, medical writings, compatriotic publications--all this and more form a rich and lasting legacy.
To the best of our knowledge, this two-part feature includes all known Yeran publications, which includes items where he is listed as publisher as well as when he is listed as printer--although we acknowledge that there may be items we are not aware of. As far as we know, they only missing items are a collection of postcards; according to the Yeran catalogue, the postcards included Armenian notables, writers, and historical figures. If anyone has these, we'd like to see them.
