The Betty Anderson Collection

Betty Lou Anderson, legendary designer and art director at Albert A. Knopf in the late twentieth century, has inspired countless designers. She was also a great bibliophile amassing a collection that included not only modern first editions, but also poetry, drama, biographies, and even broadsides.

For many titles, Anderson had never-in-production proof dust jackets. We were fortunate to acquire a significant collection from her estate, which provides wonderful insight into her own interests and inspirations.
