The John Teti Rare Photography Collection

 

The John Teti Rare Photography Book Collection

The New Hampshire Institute of Art offers one of the finest collections of photographic resources in the United States.

The John Teti Rare Photography Book Collection was established in October 2007 through a generous donation by John Teti of over 2,000 rare books, periodicals, prints and documents.

The materials retained in Special Collections are all seminal or definitive works illustrating the history of photography, and include Edward Steichen’s personal copies of Alfred Stieglitz’ Camera Work.

These materials provide our students, faculty and outside scholars with access to important photographic works for study, examination, and appreciation.

Introduction to Special Collections

The Special Collections room is located in Fuller Hall and is the repository for rare and unique materials for the New Hampshire Institute of Art.  The majority of these books, periodicals, and other photography related materials were donated by Mr. John Teti, for whom our library is named.   Holdings include rare and unique materials on fine art photography and the history of photography.
