0.3 Linear feet

Lapis Press was a publishing firm Butterfield was involved in. A few scattered records exist in this collection relating to Lapis publications, including a catalog, clippings with cartoons files as "Lapis Jokes," newspaper clippings relating the activities of the press, and two interviews on two sound cassettes with unidentified scholars of Carl Jung, possibly including one with C.A. Meyer, the author of Lapis publication
Soul and Body
. One of the interviews is falsely labeled Jean Star Untermeyer, but could not have been her as it post-dates her death. Also found are a number of photographs that were collected for Lapis publications, including copy negatives for Dorothea Tanning's
Birthday
, photographs of San Francisco beat-era writers from various sources for the book
Whitman's Wild Children
, and photographs of an unidentified publishing event.
