SHAW, George Bernard
LETTER TO G. B. SHAW WITH HIS MANUSCRIPT REPLY ON REVERSE, 1922
1922. SHAW, George Bernard. LETTER TO G. B. SHAW WITH HIS SIGNED MANUSCRIPT REPLY ON REVERSE, 1922. 8x10 inches, typed on letterhead of E. J. Larby, Ltd., London, "The Diary and Calendar Specialists." Brief letter announcing the publication in 1922 of a pamphlet, requesting Shaw's "brief expression of your own views on the proposal, with permission to publish the same." Larby published maps and touring guides, as well as books on leisure and sport; the author or name of the pamphlet is not given, and the pamphlet is not included (originally enclosed with letter). Judging by Shaw's handwritten reply on reverse he would prefer another calendar to the present one, "of the working of which I have nearly 66 years experience," and his wry note that since "my interest in the matter is the same as everybody else's I can see no obstacle to the change but pure inertia." Signed and dated 8/1/22. (The Larby letter is dated 29th December 1921.).
