Extent: 32.8 linear feet (82 boxes)
Chef Fritz Blank (1942 August 25 – 2014 September 9) was a prominent chef, restauranteur, and gastronome during the beginnings of Philadelphia’s second-wave restaurant renaissance in the 1980s. His Victus Populi collection comprises over 3,000 recipe booklets, pamphlets, and cookbooks but constitutes only a small subset of Chef Fritz Blank’s enormous cookbook library that was set apart by its focus on the American consumer and home cook. Blank titled the collection Victus Populi (Latin for “Food of the People”) because he saw these pamphlets as one of the best sources of historical information about purchasing, cooking, and consumption habits of the American public in the 20th century. Many of the items appear to be promotional items or product premiums, often produced using relatively inexpensive materials and, as evidenced by extensive wear-and-tear and the occasional spatter, heavily used in household kitchens.

Lea, Henry Charles, 1825-1909, Compiler
Extent: 56 boxes (+ 1 map drawer folder)
Henry Charles Lea’s extensive research on the Inquisition produced works of such breadth and detail that they continue to be essential references for contemporary researchers. Lea’s general level of mastery of archives from all over Europe and his ability to read source material in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, French, Italian, and German, make it difficult for subsequent scholarship to rival that in his works, published over a hundred years ago. This collection contains copies of the archival material which Lea drew upon heavily in the preparation of his books. These copies, made and sent to Lea from various European archives, were donated to the University of Pennsylvania as part of Lea’s library.
