The Burroughs/Gysin archive now in NYPL was not originally sold to Richard Aaron. Richard was a rare book collector and dealer who sold the original archive, which I described, to Roberto Altman, a collector living in Vaduz, on behalf or Burroughs and Gysin. He never owned it. Altman had originally intended to create a study centre in Vaduz for this and other contemporary archives but unfortunately the financing fell through and the collection remained in storage until the early eighties when it was sold by Altman to Robert Jackson in Cleveland, Ohio. It was Jackson who finally sold it to NYPL.
