TLS signed “AA” and “Ansel Adams,” one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, March 21, 1969. Letter to Jim Hartnett of the Polaroid Corporation. In part: “He is the one I spoke about and requested roll film for. He received them and is very appreciative! I felt that he had a very interesting ‘eye’ and deserved encouragement. We do not see many good roll-film Polaroid Land prints these days, and I think he achieved some excellent compositions. I would like to encourage him to try the 100 series (or the 300 if he could afford it). Would there be any of the 100 or 200 series available? He is very precise about payments, etc. and has enclosed a P.M.O. for mailing the prints from Cambridge to Fitchburg.” In the margin, he adds: “Good heavens, I thought we had sent you the TRAILSIDE print!! It will go off PRONTO!! As you note, I have sent the prints on to Polaroid. I am sure they will be pleased. In am very sorry that they came while I was away and were placed in my vault!” In fine condition, with punch holes to the left edge. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
