Toronto: Robertson Davies n.p. [Toronto], N.d. William Robertson Davies, CC, FRSC, FRSL [1913 / 1995]. Canadian novelist, playwright, critic, journalist, & professor. One of Canada's best-known & most popular authors, & one of its most distinguished "men of letters", a term Davies is variously said to have gladly accepted for himself & to have detested.

Matted with a gold filet & black sculpted wood frame [glazed] to an overall size of 10" 1/2 x 13" 1/2 - Typed, signed & corrected 4x by Davies in black ink: "The tongue is one half of a man, but the other half is the heart'. I have always liked that proverb, because it does honour to the faculty of speech, and it is speech as much as anything that divides man from the lesser creations".. Signed by Author. Original Autographed Quotation. Framed & Glazed.
