Notes: A selection of work, some signed and most attributable, sent to the Anglo-Hungarian wood-engraver George Buday, demonstrating the international community of artists in his and related fields - including work by other Hungarian emigrés such as Nagy and Mayer Marton, as well as Italian, German and Catalan engravers. The material divides into two categories - greetings cards and bookplates - in which Buday was active; indeed, he wrote a book on the former in 1964.
