Expanded Biographical Narrative

Jake Zeitlin was born on November 4, 1902, in Racine, Wisconsin and worked as a bookseller, poet and book reviewer in Ft. Worth, Texas before moving to Los Angeles in 1925. He began his career in bookselling when employed by Holmes Book Company and the book departments of the May Company and Bullock's before opening his first shop, designed by Lloyd Wright, in 1927. Wright designed a more elaborate shop in 1929 that became a meeting place for the city's intellectuals. In collaboration with his wife, Josephine Ver Brugge, Zeitlin moved his shop into a large red barn on La Cienega Blvd. in 1948, selling rare books, prints and paintings. He lectured widely on subjects related to rare books and the history of science, and was instrumental in bringing many collections to UCLA, including the Grunewald Graphic Arts Collection. He personally donated several manuscript collections to the Department of Special Collections before his passing in August 1987.
Frieda Lawrence was born Frieda von Richthofen August 11, 1879 to Prussian Baron Friedrich von Richthofen and Anna Marquier von Richthofen, near Metz, Germany. David Herbert Lawrence was born in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, England, Sept. 11, 1885. In 1912 Frieda met Lawrence, then a student of her first husband. They eloped, and the Lawrences were married in July 1914. They traveled continuously for the next few years in France, Italy, Germany and Australia before settling at Kiowa Ranch near Taos, New Mexico. D.H. Lawrence was a novelist, essayist, and poet, best known for Lady Chatterley's lover (1928); his numerous publications include: Sons and Lovers (1913), Women in Love (1920), and The Plumed Serpent (1926). Lawrence died in France in 1930; after his death, Frieda traveled to Europe briefly before returning to the ranch in 1931 with her companion, Angelo Ravagli. Frieda and Ravagli married in 1950, and she died in New Mexico August 11, 1956.

Scope and Content

After D.H. Lawrence's death in 1930, his widow Frieda Lawrence made the financially necessary decision to sell the manuscripts that he left behind. In 1936, Galka Scheyer introduced Frieda Lawrence to Los Angeles book dealer Jake Zeitlin, and she agreed to make Zeitlin her exclusive agent. The financial and emotional negotiations for these papers between Frieda Lawrence, her partner Angelo Ravagli, and Jake Zeitlin are the central subjects of the correspondence. The collection also includes drafts and correspondence related to the sale catalog (written by Lawrence Clark Powell with an introduction by Aldous Huxley, and printed by Ward Ritchie with an M.F.K. Fisher frontispiece). Zeitlin's various appraisals, exhibition-related materials from the Los Angeles Public Library, and three photographs of Frieda Lawrence.

  1. Correspondence (1933-1981).
