Leacock, Stephen
Signed Original Autographed Display
1924. Autograph Display. Framed & Glazed. Signed by Author. Stephen Butler Leacock [1869 -1944] was an unlikely combination of humorist & political economist. Throughout his life he was able to successfully combine the roles of satirical & academic writer, university professor & public speaker. Original Autograph sentiment over a TLS dated Feb 12th, 1924, Easton , Pennsylvania on club sized stationery [6" 1/4 x 8" ¼]. In black fountain pen: " My best thanks for such / a fine note / Stephen Leacock" freely inscribed over the delightful original typed recipient's missive: "Apparently the penalty for writing such delightful books is to be pestered by the readers of them.". Displayed in matted windows with a handsome sepia photo print image, framed & glazed in an elegant museum quality wood frame to an overall size of 14" x 20". A lovely presentation. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: TBCL The Book Collector's Library (tbcl) [Cote Saint-Luc, Quebec, Canada]
