Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $245.00 (includes buyer's premium)


American writer (1842-c.1914) best known for his vivid short stories (including the classic 'An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge') and his satirical 'The Devil's Dictionary.' In 1913, while traveling with Pancho Villa's troops during the Mexican Revolution, Bierce disappeared; his ultimate fate remains a mystery. ALS, one page, 5.25 x 8, [annotated in pencil in another hand, January 20, 1911]. Letter to "Neale," in part: "I hopes the pages of Vols. IX and X have not been made up. Anyhow, this change will have to be made, for some of the stuff has been duplicated. I'll write you tomorrow giving the make-up of all the volumes, as your sending the big batch of proofs has enabled me to do." In fine condition, with toning over almost all of the page.
