Lot 657: ALS, one page both sides, 5.5 x 7, personal letterhead, September 29, 1967. Letter to E. B. Byrne, in part: "I am so glad your project met with such wide appreciation—I certainly give you full permission to reprint my letter to you in book form. I am quite content to leave it as written—later additions & deletions—or indeed corrections of any kind are nearly always a mistake." In fine condition, with expected horizontal mailing fold passing through the signature. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope and a glossy photo of Christie. Byrne ran a program at New York City's Elizabeth Barrett Browning Junior High School where she asked major literary and artistic figures for recollections of what books inspired them; some responses were published in the 1971 book Attacks of Taste.
