DH Lawrence mentioned in The New York Times:
Delicate Chinese Albums for Wealthy Show-Offs

The Huntington Library in California has acquired a set of 17th-century Chinese albums
of wood blocks and poetry from the Ten Bamboo workshop.
Half way down the article on "Delicate Chinese Albums" is the reference
to the DH Lawrence Ranch in San Cristobal, NM - better known as the Kiowa Ranch.
