Stein, Gertrude, 1874-1946. Papers of Gertrude Stein [manuscript], 1922-1955.

Papers of Gertrude Stein [manuscript], 1922-1955.

Nineteen letters to Edmund R. Brown regard the production and the publication of "Geography and plays." Two letters to William Buehler Seabrook regard his work "The magic island" as well as Stein's and Toklas's life in their summer home in Biligmin par Belley, France. Nine letters to Pierre de Massot regard his and her work, visits, and his preface to "Dix portraits." The bulk of the letters of this collection are directed to Sir Francis Rose regarding their friendship, visits, health, pet dogs "Basket" and "Curley," and especially his work. Stein appreciates his paintings but also offers sarcastic criticism. In addition she gives advice, support, and help with exhibits. There are also letters to book-sellers, letters regarding finances, a letter to Virgil Thomson thanking him for a book, and several letters by Alice B. Toklas on routine matters and one concerning Stein's rift with Henri Matisse. The collection also contains manuscripts of "Some memories of Henri Matisse," and a commentary on "Geography and plays" by Toklas, and "The work of Gertrude Stein," by Sherwood Anderson; two contracts, and several photographs including Carl Van Vechten's photograph of Stein in front of the Rotunda at the University of Virginia, and a photograph of the 1906 Picasso portrait of Stein.
