  • Notes: The letter copying book forms part of a set of 205 copying books that document the letters sent by the New York office of the Knoedler Gallery from 1890 to 1940. Although some books date from after 1931, the firm primarily switched to the use of loose carbon copies in 1931. Manufactured by H. C. Davison of New York, a firm with branches in Yokohama and Los Angeles, the books are bound volumes of thin, translucent tissue leaves, which Davison advertised as "Imperial fibre" or imported Japanese paper. The books are said to contain 500 leaves, but there may be inconsistencies in the numbering that was done by hand and with a stamp. Knoedler staff listed the names of addressees with the corresponding number for the letter in the index located at the front of each book. The books are filed according to the following categories devised by the Knoedler firm: Domestic letters; Foreign letters; London; Paris; Chicago; Private letters; Telegrams and cables.
