The letters of Gertrude Stein and Carl Van Vechten, 1913-1946 by Gertrude Stein( Book )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monumental two-volume set of her correspondence with Carl Van Vechten, the critic novelist, and photographer, offers new insight into Stein's life, her art, and the intellectual and artistic milieu of Paris.
