Listing Details

The offered lot contains three binders of material from an exceptionally large and varied autograph collector. The collector had extremely wide ranging intellectual interests, as these binders contains mainly letters. The content is mainly from the mid-19th century through the 1950s. There are many British letters from the 19th century and other international pieces. This is far from our area of expertise, there could well be some very special items in these binders. The condition is clean overall, there does not appear to be any duplication. Content includes historical, political, poetry, opera, music, actors and literary signatures among others. These are some of the signatures that we could identify: Dean Acheson 1949 TLS, Marguerite Blessington (1789-1849) ALS, Cynthia Brooke ALS, Bernice Claire vintage album page, Agnes Mary Frances Duclaux (1857-1944) ALS, Elsie Ferguson 1912 TLS, Hamilton Fish 1944 TLS, Pamela Foster vintage SP, Augusta Garretson ALS, Ruby Hill ALS, Jacob Javits 1951 & 1964 TLS, Elinor Lane (1864-1909) ALS, Dixon Hall Lewis (US Senator Alabama, 1802-1848), William James Linton 1894 ALS, Julian Magnus ALS, Robert Merrill 8x10, William M.
