Series 5: Letterpress Books , 1896-1917
17 Linear feet
Boxes 235-251

Letterpress books consist of 75 volumes that chronologically collect all of the Museum of Art's outgoing correspondence from 1896 to 1917. Volumes 1-8 contain the only copy of outgoing correspondence from 1896 to 1900. Duplicate copies of all outgoing correspondence dating from 1901 to 1917 were interfiled in Correspondence (Series 1) by museum staff. Some of the earlier letterpress volumes include indexes that can be found at either the front or back of each book. In many cases, the copy text of the print in these volumes is faint and difficult to read.
