New to this group. I'll start by saying I own an antique store. I come across many items which I can normally find out information on my own regarding pricing, interest, etc. We received something today that I'm not sure what to do with. Kinda hard to put a value on it. It's a large book (measures 16.5" x 14") that contains 113 prints by Toni Frissell. The book is a present to William Whiteford (Gulf Oil). The letter inside that was sent with the book is dated April 29th, 1963. I attached 4 photos (hopefully correctly) to kinda of give you an idea of what the book looks like and the actual letter that was sent along with it.

Hopefully I did this right and within the rules. Any input or guidance would be appreciated! Thank you!

Ray

Hi Ray
I think this would be more up the alley of a Gulf Oil collector. Definitely a niche item! I know there is a member or two of the Gulf Oil Historical Society on this site, or you might try their Facebook page Gulf Oil Historical Society (GOHS).

Perhaps there are also collectors who would be interested in this limited edition work by the photographer, Toni Frissell. It turns out she was something of an acclaimed photographer. John
