TOKLAS, Alice B
AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS)
18 October 1959, Paris. A fine two-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED on one side of two pieces of 5-1/4" x 8" onionskin paper personal stationery to Saul Mauraker. In part: "It is you -- not I -- who are sweet and wonderful -- you are too good -- too kind." Toklas thanks him for scarves delivered to her by young friends: "Well in spite of the disorder and my dishevelled state -- we had a nice talk." She tells him to save his pennies to come to Paris to visit instead of giving "extravagant gifts to old ladies! I went to lunch with Jo Barry, he was enthusiastic about the scarf. Is it Russian or Polish, he asked. I showed him the mark 'Pure wool 100% Sacks-Fifth-Avenue [sic]. 'Oh' said Jo. New York is the capital of Poland and Russia!'" SIGNED "Alice." With the original envelope addressed in Toklas's hand. Faint creases from mailing. Fine [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
