"Richard Shirley Smith's long association with the Finzi family is commemorated here by the use of his 1961 wood engravings first published in Joy Finzi's A Point of Departure (1967) which are reproduced on pages 90, 92, 94, 97, 100, 102 and 220. Also included in this anthology is a reprint of Jeremy Dale Roberts's review of Shirley Smith's The Paintings and Collages which originally appeared in the Finzi Friends Newsletter."--Moss.

BAC: From the Roger W. Moss Collection of manuscript, original art and printed material by and about Richard Shirley Smith.
BAC: British Art Center copy bound in publisher's original dark red cloth, with dust jacket. Laid in (removed to folder: Suppl.) are photocopies of the obituaries of Joy Finzi from The Telegraph (June 6, 1991), The Guardian (June 19, 1991), and Shirley Smith's reminiscences of her from Joy Finzi, 1907-1991: Tributes from her friends.
"Long out-of-print writings have been freshly edited and revised, with many new pieces appearing in print for the first time ... The life and works of composer Gerald Finzi are not the sole focus of this anthology. His wife Joy Finzi's centenary is justly commemorated through substantial extracts from her rare memorial tribute volume, with a selection of her poems."--Dust jacket.
