June 4, 1975 Mrs. Eliasabeth Rhoades Reynolds Dear Mrs. Reynolds: I appreciate having the copy of 291, Illustrated by Marin. It will be a fine addition to our collection. I noticed that it was the same issue that we had here on display In the second floor memorabilla gallery. I also noted that it was on regular paper not on 'vellum,' as were many of the other issues of 291 in the set which Nick Clark brought down for the exhibition. Can you tell me, if did fact, you have a complete set of 291, with all of the Issues on vellum. It is sometimes difficult to tell paper from vellum, but it should not present too much of a problem. The vellian is heavier and as I recall slightly yellower in tone. This is an Important question for us to answer, if you are planning to sell the complete set. Naturally, a collector would want all of the Issues to be uniformly consistent, namely the deluxe set on vellum. The issue in which the Stieglitz Steerage appears I am sure is vellum, and you could use that as an indicator to which to correlate other paper textures of the 291 Issues that you own. Again, let me say how much I appreciated your generosity. I also was glad to have your remarks, in writing, about your experiences with the exhibition here. I will keep in touch with you concerning the sale of the 291. The person with whom I have been discussing the matter is going to be in Europe for several weeks, about this time, so I do not imagine that anything will be happening right away. With best regards. Sincerely, William I. Homer --— Chairman WIHJsr \
