      A small archive of 28 letters, 12 post cards and miscellaneous ephemera and clippings from the Dead Letter Office at Alcatraz Prison, San Francisco Bay, dated from 1951 to 1962. The correspondence is addressed to inmates, both real and imagined, and to the postmaster at Alcatraz. A few of the letters were spurious or hoaxes, in which the correspondents used the Alcatraz return address, and when deemed undeliverable, they were sent to Alcatraz. Included among the post cards are several addressed to Alcatraz Postmaster Jean Long, seeking cancelled stamps from unusual places. Overall condition is very good to fine.

        Jerusalem The Emanation of the Giant Albion

      4to. London: Trianon Press for the William Blake Trust, [1951]. 4to, (6), ix text, and 100 pochoir colorplates. Blue buckram, gilt title. Very good copy in a new slipcase. Limited to 516 copies. The definitive facsimile of one of Blake?s greatest works and the first of the magnificent series of facsimiles created by the Trianon Press of Blake?s illuminated books. The Preludium is by Joseph Wicksteed and the Bibliographical Statement by Geoffrey Keynes. Bentley 78. "Blake's etched copperplates, giving the text of his poem and the basis of the designs, were printed by him in a rich orange ink and were then illuminated by hand in water colours and gold. The etched base has now been reproduced by collotype in orange and the prints have then been coloured by hand by a stencilling process, so that the final result bears the closest possible resemblance to Blake's original plates. An average of forty-four applications of water colours was required for each full page illustration, of which there are four. Of the remainder, fifty-one have some text with designs filling half the page or more, and thirty-five have text with small marginal decorations.". (Introduction)

        Frank Lloyd Wright Business Card, Circa 1951

      A business card from Frank Lloyd Wright's San Francisco office, belonging to Aaron Green, circa 1951. On a visit in 1951 to Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio near Scottsdale, Arizona, Aaron Green mentioned that he was planning to relocate his architectural practice to San Francisco. To his surprise, Wright suggested a joint venture. Wright had good reason for wanting to establish a satellite office there: he had several houses and a store in various stages of planning or completion, and prospects were favorable for obtaining more work, including a bridge across San Francisco Bay. For Green, the association offered a way to formalize his relationship with Wright while continuing to develop his independent practice. During that time, Wright and Green worked together on the V.C. Morris Gift Shop (Wright's only commercial project) and Wright's last major project, the Marin County Civic Center, among others. Green, who had been an apprentice at Taliesin, was responsible for carrying the Marion County Civic Center project to completion after Wright's death in 1959. Included is a contemporary business card from Aaron Green Architects. A fascinating piece of ephemera linking Wright and one of his most important associates. 3.5 x 2 inches. Near Fine.
