Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Philip Mills Arnold Semeiology Collection, perhaps the most diverse and comprehensive of all the Washington University Libraries Special Collections, brings together a broad range of materials dealing with or exemplifying the nature and characteristics of communication. Placing particular emphasis on early printed materials that appeared at early stages of the development of interest in topics relevant to semeiology, the Arnold Collection had especially strong holdings in the fields of cryptography, artificial memory, decipherment of unknown languages, early development sin stenography, Braille, deaf and mute languages, and various forms of nonverbal communication.

Complementing the more than 2,000 volume in the Arnold book collection that forms the largest component of the Semiology Collection is a small, yet select, group of manuscripts and printed ephemera, including materials relating to cryptography, sign languages, telegraphy, accounting, paleography, mnemonics, philosophy, stenography, and other topics.

The sign languages section contains numerous single printed sheets from the nineteenth century depicting different systems for deaf-mute communication in many languages, probably published as teaching aids. The three items on telegraphy emphasize its use for the military, focusing on secretly communicating sensitive offers for maneuvers. Items included in the Accounting and Paleography sections demonstrate the variety of early forms of alternative numerological systems and alternative scripts, both of which indicate that communication is based on an ever-changing use of various signs.

An important work on mnemonics, Raymond Lull’s Ars demonstrativa et ars brevis, highlights this curious and frequently mystical system of logic, metaphysics, and the intricate workings of the communicating mind. Manuscripts depicting many of the thousands of separate languages of the world are also included in the collection, mostly relying on biblical texts to illustrate the complex nature of human communication. One other example of alternative means of communicating is a shorthand version of the Psalms.

Finally, included as an illustration of the early evaluation of printing, are 52 specimens of early typography, dating from 1477 to 1674. Taken as a whole, the manuscript collection reveals the interdisciplinary nature of semeiology and reflects the eclectic range of Arnold’s important collection.

Collection Historical Note

Philip Mills Arnold, executive, researcher, and scholar, retired in 1976 as vice president for research and developement of Phillips Petroleum Company after nearly forty years with the company. Most of his career was spent in scientific research. He played a ,ajor role in the company's entry into the chemical industry, in which it rapidly became a major producer of synthetic rubber, plastics, fibers, and fertilizers.

A member of the National Academy of Engineering since 1970, Arnold also has been active in the National Research Council. He served in the Executive Committee of its Division of Chemistry and Chemical Technology and on its committee on Scholarly Communication with the Peoples' Republic of China.

While his professional life has been devoted to science and technology, his avocaton has been study in the humanities. The holder of 22 patents, Arnold reads widely in several languages. A student of semeiology - the study of the use of signs and symbols - Arnold has explored the history of communication, from efforts to relate through universal languages and alphabets, to systems to conceal, specifically, codes and ciphers. He founded in 1966 and has supported over the years the Philip Mills Arnold Semeiology Collection. In addition, Arnold built other distinguished collections, including early books on comets and early editions of the medieval philosopher Boethius. Upon Arnold's death in 1995, the libraries received the bequest, as well as his entire estate.

Arnold earned a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering in 1932 and a master of science degree in chemical engineering in 1941 from Washington University. In 1968, he was recognixed at Founders Day with an Alumni Citation from the Washington University Board of Governors.

Folder 1: Caramuel de Lobkowitz, Steganographiae Trithemii et Claviculae Salmonis Germani declaratio et vindicatio, circa 1650-1675Add to your cart.
Manuscript of a French translation of around 1650-1675, Neatly written on fine laid paper this text deals with the “Steganographia” of Abbot Trithemius which had been written around 1500 and printed in Lyons in 1531. It ends with a certification that it follows accepted doctrine, with the date of 1534 and a permit to print it stated to have been prepared in Salamanca, 1534. This may be fictitious or perhaps connected with the original text of Trithemius. One leaf of introduction seems to be missing. Otherwise in fine unflawed condition. Caramuel was a Spanish theologian (1606-1682). He had a varied career, serving Emperor Ferdinand III, Pope Alexander VII, and occupied some of the highest positions in the Cistercian concerns, with secret correspondences and means to communicate by hidden indications, the invocation of spirits, writing explained by code, etc.

(209 pages) Bound Auto ms. Purports to be Cicero’s correspondence with various people. P. M. Arnold, in letter dated Jan. 3, 1977, notes: “It appears to be in two or more hands, so it may have been copied from some book, but I have not tried to identify such a book. It is not complete, as a piece of paper is pasted over the heading of another chapter on the bottom of the last page. Of course, it may not have been finished by the person who wrote it. I thought it interesting mainly as an example of the handwriting of the period. The title page does not appear to be contemporaneous with the rest of the book, so the dating may be incorrect.”

(200 pages) Bound Auto ms. Two colophons, one on K6 (calendris februaris 1516) and one on M4 (February 10, 1516). Memory wheels, text figures on memory and mnemonics. Lull was born in Mallorca and was one of the most prolific writers of his time. He composed his texts in Arabic, Catalan, and Latin. The Ars demonstrativa (1282-1285) is a simplified version of his elaborate ideas on Art; it details a system he devised to be used both as a logic and as a metaphysic. He was unique in ascribing letters instead of numbers to the symbolic elements in his syllogistic systems and for combining these with geometric figures. His work is based on the numerology of the 7 planets and the 12 signs of the Zodiac, divine symbols that influenced the elemental patterns of nature. The Ars brevis (1308) is a lesser, philosophical work. Lull was influenced by medieval Platonism and the Cabala, and in turn influenced the work of Giordorna Bruno and Pasqual. The Ars brevis was first published in Raymundi Lullii e Opera, 1609, Argentorati, Lazari Zetzneri, and theArs demonstrativa was first published in Opera Omnia, Mainz, 1721-1742, as Vols. III and IV.
