Credits & Debits ImagePhotographs and Illustrations Collection

The art illustrating the accounting literature from the Summa to the present is surely one of the most underappreciated aspects of accounting history. This collection includes the frontispieces of 16th- and 17th-century accounting texts; cartoons and illustrations from 19th- and early 20th-century books, logos, and mastheads; and photographs from early organizational meetings, early journals and books, and from the pages of the Accounting Historians Journal and Accounting Historians Notebook.

This collection is in two parts – a small group of illustrations and portraits that may be browsed by image or subject, and a much larger group of photographs that may be browsed by subject only.

I. Browse-by-Image Collection
A Browse the Photographs and Illustrations search screen allows the user to peruse the images in order to select an illustration and go to the full bibliographic record and view a larger image. Or, the user may click the down arrow in the Quick Search box below and select title, author, or subject. For in-depth searching, use the “ Advanced Keyword ” search on the DAC home page and use “Illustrations Collection” in a title field.
