Letters to Audrey Arrellanes

Audrey Arellanes


Audrey Arellanes  was a remarkable woman who singlehandedly ran the bookplate society for over thirty years.
When she died  her daughter Denetia wrote about her in this article.

Audrey corresponded with collectors, artists and many notable people on a regular basis.
She was reluctant to throw out anything. I remember one box which contained thirty years of movie ticket stubs
Here are a few of the letters Audrey received.




Here is another letter she received after writing to the American Poet  Louis Untermeyer



Here is a link to an article from The Literary Hub  about ten notable book collectors

JULY 4th

July 4th is a few days away. My hope is that civility and sanity in our government  returns.
On the other hand ,I do not think that will happen unless these guys launch another sneak attack.
So I have an alternate wish . Let's hope the Democrats beat the crap out of the Republicans in the
mid term elections.
