A nice piece on the acquisition by Harvard\'s Houghton Library of the collection of Boston bibliophile and Longfellow fanatic Victor Gulotta:
Victor Gulotta\'s collection once filled his upstairs library. It included first-edition books, manuscripts, letters, photographs, and other objects associated with American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) - about 1,000 items, amassed over 14 years. Possibly the largest Longfellow collection in private hands, it spilled into Gulotta\'s hallway, where parts of it adorned the walls above the stairs. . .
