Scope and Content

Letter from Stevens stating he has received the collotypes of the book-plate from Meriden and is wholly unimpressed with the outcome. He believes it requires either a wood engraving or lithograph. With reply: Duncan updates Stevens that Holt and Co. have been informed that they should contact Knopf concerning reprinting Esthetique du mal and Notes. Main topic of the reply is Guthrie's drawing and printing. Duncan describes the process involved in creating wood-blocks for printing and how it adds to the integrity of art.
