John Barnard Associates Sponsor Treasure Room Text

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Walter Crane's "Hazelford Sketch Book" with many samples from the originals in the Widener Library, will be published today by the John Barnard Associates through the Harvard University Press.

Two autobiographical essays from the manuscripts in the Caroline Miller Parker Collection in the Treasure Room form the text of the book. These interesting notes jotted down in odd moments by this 19th century artist and decorator reveal his background and how he started on his career.

The Barnard Associates were founded to "emulate John Barnard of the Class of 1700, who was fond of good books and did what he could for Harvard." This is the fourth publication of the society which has already issued facsimiles of the Shelley Notebook and one of Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass," both owned by the College Library.
