Description                           Estimate: $200 - 400          

Three TLSs, one signed “Edna Ferber.,” and two signed “Ferb.,”each one page, 730 Park Avenue letterhead, dated 1953 and 1959, with one undated. One letter, dated April 16, 1959, in part: “My only news? I am working on the musical Saratoga Trunk. Morton Da Costa has done an interesting treatment but characterization remains painfully inadequate. I am going to log in at Main Chance in an attempt to right his wrongs, but I’m feeling sulky and pettish on account of his misuse of my valuable property. If Da Costa (called Tec) were as daft as he is arrogant, I would be less resentful. I am looking forward to a last weekend here. Sunday is always my most productive day. Twas always so during my sessions with George Kaufman, but we pronounced merrily even on New Year’s day when all the other kids were sleeping off a hard night’s frolic. I’d rather write than play. Lucky me!” In overall fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
