ADAMS ANSEL: (1902-1984) American Photographer. T.L.S., Ansel, one page, folio, Yosemite, California, 18th June 1961, to Nick [Dean], on the personal printed stationery of Adams. An interesting technical letter in which Adams thanks his correspondent for his letter adding 'Real exciting about your new work. When see some?' Continuing 'Comments on Rochester Mystics EXACTLY to the point. I am fond of Minor in spite of all- but I can (sic) stomach the rest of them.' Further adding 'Can't read the Sanscrit (sic) on the envelope too well, but if you refer to the new Gnossen (?) meter and its Japanese counterpart, I found them inaccurate in the higher luminance's. I also worked with the new Heiland meter and that seems very poor indeed. Off in various areas, and not consistently. Cell seems to have low sensitivity to blue. Calibrated to VI but very poorly "dialed".' Adams has added 'Damn the Typewriter!' in his own hand to the foot of the page. Together with a signed black and white postcard depicting 'Evening Clouds, Ellery Lake, Sierra Nevada, California. Photographed by Ansel Adams', signed and dedicated ('To Ruth Nottman, Ansel Adams, Carmel c a 12-27-79'), with Adams hand stamped address. Also including an unused, unsigned 'Seasons Greetings' card of the same 'Evening Clouds' image. VG to EX, 3
