        Typed Letters Signed

      1976 - HELLMAN, Lillian. Typed Letters Signed. Two one-page typed letters signed from Hellman, dated respectively May 7 and May 27, 1976. Hellman expresses her displeasure over a recent review of her book Scoundrel Time by Mary Geisheker in the "Baltimore Sun" on April 25, in which Hellman feels Geisheker implies she is a lesbian. In the first letter to publisher William F. Schmick Jr., Hellman expresses her displeasure: "I have never commented on the literary opinions of a reviewer, nor do I do so now. But your reviewer has gone in for a new field of literary criticism. A good deal of the piece is taken up with my photograph and what I look like. Thus I am in dress and in attitude `butch,' have an `air of sassy androgeny cultivated by Forties movies heroines,' (in itself a remarkable misstatement since they didn't cultivate any such thing), and because of these qualities I would have been in danger from `tough dikes' in jail. (In this last statement, Miss Geisheker deliberately perverts a quotation from Dashiell Hammett). It does not matter that the clear intimation that I am a Lesbian happens to be a lie. It is low down stuff. I guess maybe the lowest I ever read in a newspaper." Hellman discusses the matter further and states the reviewers' desire to prove her a Lesbian has lead to contradictions in the review. In the second letter, Hellman responds to a reply, which includes responses by Geisheker, from Book Review Editor Harold A. Williams, dated May 13 (original reply letter enclosed as is an original copy of the book review by Geisheker): "If I write again it is in the hope that you will, for the sake of others, ask Miss Geisheker to show less confidence in her opinions, which is a pleasant way of saying less than I mean." Hellman responds point-by-point to some of Geishker's responses and use of the word "butch." "It is used by female and male homosexuals to mean exactly what it has always meant; i.e. tough homosexuals. Miss Geisheker has no right to use that personal language." She also writes further about the Hammett quote being taken out of context. In all four items. Upper left corner of the second Hellman letter torn away but with no lose of text. $850.00.

      Paris: Christian Dior, 1976. Ink, watercolor and gouache on xerograph. Fabric swatches attached with staples. Sheet measures 12 1/2" x 8 7/8". This original croquis from the designer Christian Dior features a dress from the Spring/Summer 1976 collection, when the house was under designer Marc Bohan. This croquis was made from a xerograph of an original drawing, which was then hand-colored with ink, watercolor, and gouache. The design shows a long, elegant, pale green dress with a finely pleated skirt. Swatches of the appropriate fabric, one flat and one pleated, are stapled to the sheet. These sketches were produced in a limited quantity and presented to potential clients in attendance at the Paris Couture shows held by Dior in the spring and fall of each year. This example is in good condition and makes a wonderful document for any lover of fashion.
