Early States of the JOB Series
The Blake Trust is doing a Catalogue Raisonné of the Job series and we are very anxious to know of any early states that there may be in existence apart from those in possession of Sir Geoffrey Keynes, the British Museum, the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Library of Congress, Mr. Lessing J. Rosenwald, and Mr. Hofer.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has early states, that is before the state on India paper which has “proof” in the right-hand corner. We are also anxious to find the whereabouts of any engravings that are coloured. There are four in the Fitzwilliam Museum and we know of the existence of a complete set of coloured engravings somewhere in the United States. They were last heard of in the collection of George C. Smith, Jr.
