A note included here dated “9 February 1975” from previous seller indicates that this copy was purchased by fine press book collector Wyman Parker: “Dear Wyman, the Goudy portrait-watermarked program was evidently purchased for your own collection.

Weiler.” Bill of sale reads: “To: Weslyan University Library, Middletown, Connecticut 06457 Attention: Wyman Parker; Catalogue 2. Item B4. (Goudy, F.W.)
