Eleven proof sheets, with three in color, printed by R. R. Donnelley and Sons Company, and eight in grayscale, containing illustrations used in Duncan Phillips and His Collection by Marjorie Phillips (Boston: Little Brown, 1970). The proofs document works of art collected by Phillips, with his mother and wife, the painter Marjorie Phillips (née Acker), their home and gallery in Washington, D.C., and Phillips and others. The illustrations also document collection strengths in modern and Modernist-era painting and sculpture.
