Scope and Content

Copy letter from Duncan delighted by Stevens' approval of Paul Williams' illustration of Esthetique du mal. He asks if any alterations should be made on proofs being sent to the Kenyon Review. Also makes reference to a binding of The winter sea (1944) by Allen Tate. In response: Stevens states that the Press should invest any royalties gained back into the book; states that books are his "chief excitement" and wishes Paul Williams to paint an illustration in his copy of Allen Tate's The winter sea (1944).
