In 1986, the UCI Libraries acquired the Hans Waldmueller Thomas Mann Collection, which had been one of the most important in private hands. The collection contains first editions of all of Mann's published books in German as well as extensive holdings of his published articles and contributions in periodicals and other books. It is particularly strong in secondary literature and periodical articles dealing with Mann. Also contained in the collection are holdings of the published works of other Mann family members.

Most of the books (more than 550 titles) in the Waldmueller Collection are editions of Mann’s own writings. Search the UCI ANTPAC catalog by author to retrieve them.
