Footnotes

  • "Flight 1934, pp.31-32 'The prints of this series...were bought by the Victoria and Albert Museum, which proves there was nothing wrong with the blocks, and yet these eighteen blocks were cut entirely from some rolls of very much-used linoleum discarded by the tenants leaving a vacant flat."
