Description                           Estimate: $400+          

Irish playwright (1880-1964) best known for such working-class dramas as The Plough and the Stars and Juno and the Paycock. ALS signed “Sean,” one page both sides, 7 x 9, personal letterhead, March 26, 1961. Letter to Lewis Funke, the drama editor at the New York Times, concerning his stormy relationship with fellow writer Denis Johnston. In part: “It is damned foolish of me to take any notice of what he says of me. He has some odd psychological edge on me, as he had and has on Lady Gregory—even in his last play, ‘The Scythe & the Sunset,’ he has a sly sneer at her…I was quite innocent of all this; I thought all these—Johnston, Lennox Robinson, etc. were all friends of hers, & visitors to Coole at times; & it wasn’t till after her death, when I had lived years in London, I heard that O’Casey was a favored laddie…D. J. can say what he likes of me: you have made me wiser.” In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed in his own hand, including his surname, “O’Casey,” in the return address on the flap.
