New York: The Metropolitan Opera Guild, Inc., 1983. Boxed set of 20 correspondence note cards along with 12 blank envelopes, illustrated by Edward Gorey. Enclosed in clear plastic box which has some tears and creases, very good condition. Cards are in fine condition. (Toledano p. 159).

Gorey was a huge fan of the George Ballanchine New York City Ballet. He had an almost perfect attendance for the years 1956 - 1983. He would give back to the ballet by designing items that they could sell, including cards and buttons. After the New York City Balley commissioned Gorey to design posters, t-shirts and various merchandise, the Metropolitan Opera did the same. Very rare, no other sets currently for sale in the trade (3/16)
