Produced approximately during the same time period as the Museum Fund campaign, the presentation binders are the most significant documentation in this small compilation of material. The oversize binders contain descriptive text and images primarily of architectural elements and sculpture. Embossed on the cover with the words "Gifts that will live," the binders were apparently intended as sales tools to solicit funds to purchase specific objects. One of the binders pertains to Romanesque architecture and the Cloisters. The other three are duplicates describing 12th- to 17th-century European architectural elements. The reprint of an illustrated essay regarding the stone sepulcher presented in the first binder was probably used as reference. Also included are various lists of Museum funds and bequests and several pieces of correspondence summarizing the Museum's fund-raising and publicity results.
