The Christopher Sandford letters to John O'Connor comprise a collection of 43 letters and postcards from Sandford (as publisher of the Golden Cockerel Press) to John O'Connor and his wife Jeannie regarding Sandford's efforts to find commissions for O'Connor's work. The collection provides insight into the difficulties of fine-press book publishing and illustrating during the 1930's and 1940's in Britain, as well as the relationship between a fine-press publisher and a favored illustrator.
