Edward Gorey's 1974 Graham Gallery Exhibition - Updated

On January 23, I did an extended post about Edward Gorey's 1974 Graham Gallery Exhibition. In the post, I asked if anyone with missing images would please forward them for inclusion. Andreas Brown, a trustee of the Edward Gorey Charitable Trust, fortunately ran across a folder of xeroxed images made by Mr. Gorey in the archive which included many pieces from this exhibition. Mr. Brown very generously shared his findings to be included in this posting.

I have added the new pieces to the list below. The quality on some of the xerox copies is poor (especially the later Cat pieces) and, while some of the pieces are color, all of the xeroxes are black and white. Their inclusion, however, presents the most complete understanding of this seminal exhibition by Edward Gorey to date.

As of this writing, there are still no images for pieces #1, 10, 16, 20, 24 & 45.
