The New York Public Library is now the proud owner of Arthur Miller's personal collection.
Fine Books Magazine reports that Miller’s family has chosen to donate the playwright’s nearly 700 volumes; this includes his published plays, books, translations, anthologies, and other publications relating to his work.
One highlight, according to the magazine, is a 1951 edition of An Enemy of the People, inscribed to Marilyn Monroe.
This and the other items will be housed in the Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Collection of English and American Literature.
Miller gained early fame for his award-winning plays Death of a Salesman and The Crucible; he also wrote novels, short stories, and an autobiography.
