Lot 658: TLS on a 4.5 x 3.5 postal card, no date but postmarked November 18, 1929. Letter to author George Herbert Thring of Britain's Society of Authors, in full: "I get your point, and think it would hold if Unwin's article appeared alone, but it comes only as the third in the Little Review series and 4th in New Age series. Seems to me it is merely corroboration from a different source. I shall add a foot-note reinforcing my own contentions for the 'immaterial component' (sorry N.Age with my article is out of print. You shall have L.Review with it in, as soon as it arrives)." Pound adds a handwritten notation to the upper border, "1st by American author. 2nd by English author." Lower right corner bend, mild toning along the left edge, postal cancellation, and two rusty staple holes, otherwise fine condition. An interesting literary connection with Pound referencing George Allen and Unwin, a major British publishing company of the era. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 453 Sunday, 17th May 2015 Estimate: $400-600
