        Autograph Letter, signed ("George Gissing"), to F.G. Kitton, "should I be giving you too much trouble If I asked you to get type-written for me (one copy only) the Preface to David Copperfield ?"

      1901. Ink on 10-centime postcard, 20 lines, addressed on verso in Gissing's hand, to F.G. Kitton, Esq., Pré Mill House, St. Albans, Angleterre. 1 vols. 3 x 5 inches. Fine. Ink on 10-centime postcard, 20 lines, addressed on verso in Gissing's hand, to F.G. Kitton, Esq., Pré Mill House, St. Albans, Angleterre. 1 vols. 3 x 5 inches. Gissing at Work on Dickens. Gissing began to correspond with F.G. Kitton after publication of his 1898 study of Dickens; they collaborated on the ill-fated Rochester edition of Dickens, killed after only a few volumes appeared. "chosen by George Sproul as general editor and annotator of the Autograph Edition, Kitton wrote to Gissing to propose that he should write a new introduction to David Copperfield - a choice which was ratified with particular gratefulness. Gissing promised to have it ready by the end of the year and named his terms - fifteen guineas for 3,000 words - and for once he received more than he asked for, that is, twenty pounds" - P. Coustillas, Gissing's Writings on Dickens In his minute hand, Gissing writes Kitton concerning the preparation of a typescript of Gissing's Preface to David Copperfield, and proposing to send him the manuscript by registered post. At this time, Gissing was also in negotiations with Chapman and Hall over the terms for an abridgment of Forster's Life of Dickens. Gissing gives Kitton an address for correspondence c/o Mademoiselle Saglio, Château de Tazières, Fourchambault, Nièvre, France. Marie Saglio was a cousin of Gabrielle Fleury, and the couple stayed there in the autumn of 1900 & 1901. David Copperfield appeared with Gissing's introduction in 1903, the year of his death.
