Catalogue Note

This lot is accompanied by correspondence between Ansel Adams and John D. Crossman.  When Crossman purchased the portfolio, he noticed that one, 'A Grove of Tamarack Pine,' had not been signed, and thus wrote to Adams in 1974 to request that he sign it.  Adams was pleased to accommodate his request, and shortly thereafter Crossman went to the photographer's home to have the final print signed.

This lot is being sold to benefit The Weston Collective, an organization that awards scholarships to photography students in Monterey County practicing black and white film photography.
