3 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED to Adam BIRO. [Paris]. June-July 1974. 3 pages in-4 in ballpoint pen, 3 envelopes preserved. Correspondence concerning the publication of the catalog raisonné of Bellmer's Works. "Since our recent conversation, another thought has occurred to me that I haven't mentioned to you, perhaps because it seemed self-evident. It's about the documentation, especially the photos I'll be making available to the publisher, but these negative or positive photographic documents remain my strict property... ... I'm sorry to have disappointed you with my decision not to publish the catalog raisonné. Alas, this decision has become final - my advanced age has something to do with it. This catalog raisonné should have been exhibited at the major international exhibition which has just taken place in Basel"... NOËL Bernard. 6 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED to Adam BIRO. March October 1974-1976. 6 pages in-4 and in-8, 2 envelopes preserved. Correspondence relating in part to Hans Bellmer and the catalog raisonné project. "If Bellmer is so irrascible, imposing a date on him could only offend him. Bellmer had also replied in the same vein. I went to see him again and he told me he was FINISHED. It's funny, I'll end up feeling a kind of tenderness for this disagreeable fellow".
