"The two writers I enjoy most and still do are Robert L. Stevenson and Henry D. Thoreau"

Description

ALS, two pages, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, February 9, 1966. Letter to Evelyn Byrne, in full: “Many thanks for your nice letter. Please tell your students that the two writers I enjoy most and still do are Robert L. Stevenson and Henry D. Thoreau—Mr. Stevenson wrote about drama and Nature with great poems—and Mr. Thoreau wrote deep personal accounts of his looking in Nature.” In fine condition, with unobtrusive soiling to the signed page. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, written in Wyeth’s hand. 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. Wyeth grew up with the tales of Robert Louis Stevenson as illustrated by his own famous father, N.C. Wyeth, who counted Treasure Island and Kidnapped among his finest works of classic illustration. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
