Bank Check Signed Twice by Dawn Powell, and additionally endorsed by Edmund Wilson
New York: Irving Trust Company, 1952. Near Fine. Partially Printed Document Signed twice by Powell, and additionally endored on the rear by Edmund Wilson. Expected cancellations and stamps, none significantly affect the signatures, near fine. Check made out for $20 cash Signed by Dawn Powell, and additionally endorsed by her on the verso. Wilson was a perosnal friend of Powell's and indeed the second to last entry in her diary refereed to a visit by Wilson (using his nickname), a scant three words: "Bunny came in." Wilson had written an essay for the "New Yorker" on Powell's book The Golden Spur which had been published in his collection The Bit Between My Teeth. Reading the essay helped to inspire the interest of Tim Page, Powell's biographer, who referred to it as " far the lengthiest and most probing critical piece written about Powell during her lifetime."
