Lot 4029: Uncommon high-quality 5 x 7 paperstock photo of the great Russian author in near-profile, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "A I. Silvestre, Leon Tolstoy, 22 Oct. 1909." In fine condition; evidently a page or frontispiece removed from a book. Tolstoy began his famous correspondence with Mohandas Gandhi in October 1909, an exchange that continued until the end of his life in November 1910; Tolstoy's beliefs in nonviolence and passive resistance had a profound influence on the development of Gandhi's ideals. An exceptional image of the Russian master. RR Auction's Mario Puzo Archive And Literary Rarities Auction 470 Thursday, 18th February 2016 Estimate: $5000-6000
