 Sub-Series — Multiple Containers

Includes correspondence and publisher’s material toward A Book of Resemblances illustrated by Jess Collins, published by Henry Wenning, and printed by the Meriden Gravure Co., Meriden, Connecticut. Later canceled, the book was first contracted in 1962 by Auerhahn Press, San Francisco, California. In 1965, Duncan, Collins, and Wenning discussed its possible publication and in July 1965, Wenning suggested submitting drawings and manuscripts to Claude Fredericks, printer, for estimate. Fredericks refused the job. On January 9, 1966, Collins sent the manuscript and drawings to Wenning, who eventually published the book. It was released on November 18, 1966.
