TLS signed “G. Bernard Shaw,” one page, 7 x 7.5, personal letterhead, January 30, 1920. Letter to Gerald Gould at the offices of the Daily Herald. In full: “What! You and Dyson! No: dash it all: this is too much. I shall next be asked to contribute a preface to sell something by Hardy or Hewlett or Garvice. Besides, havnt [sic] you enemies enough of your own in the reviewing world without taking mine on your back as well. I may mention incidentally that a Shaw preface is a treatise that takes months to write, and thatyou [sic] are mistaken in supposing that I have ever knocked down that standard by doing the usual 100 word stunt to help a lame dog over a stile. I dont [sic] see much wrong with your lefs or Dyson’s.” Double-matted and framed with a photo to an overall size of 18.25 x 14. Intersecting folds (a horizontal fold passing through the top of the signature) and a small stain to the upper left corner, otherwise fine condition. Gould was a poet and critic who published Lady Adela in 1921, which was illustrated by William Henry Dyson. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
