"Merle Armitage (18931975), one of America's leading advocates of modern culture, collected with the same zest he demonstrated in other aspects of his remarkable life. An avant-garde book designer, he also was the local administrator of various federal art projects and one of the country's most successful theater impresarios. Settling in Los Angeles in 1921, Armitage founded the Los Angeles Grand Opera Association and later managed the Philharmonic Auditorium, bringing Martha Graham and Leopold Stokowski here and staging the first L.A. performance of George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess"; Signed by Illustrator

"A collector has two choices in approaching his labor of love, necessitated by any individual's limitations of time and means. He can collect in depth or in breadth within his subject. The de Bellis Collection reflects both methods. The book and music collections in the vast area of Italian contributions to Western Civilization necessitated representation and careful selection. Depth was possible in the recorded archives which for some labels is practically exhaustive."
