Scope and Contents Note
The collection consists of the archive of Trigram Press Ltd., London, through 1969. Included are correspondence between various authors, primarily British and American, and Asa and Pip Benveniste, publishers of the Press, other correspondence concerning production matters, manuscripts, galleys, other proof material, illustrations, and production notes. Some of the projects were abandoned before publication and some were produced by Trigram for other publishers.
