PEARL S. BUCK - TYPED LETTER SIGNED 01/23/1947 - HFSID 43668

 
PEARL BUCK
Buck signed this typed letter to a fellow author in Stamford, Connecticut in 1947. Buck had passed a book from the recipient of this letter on to a publisher; in this letter, she passes on the publisher's rejection of the book.
Typed letter signed: "Pearl S. Buck", 1 page, 7¼x10½, on stationery imprinted with Perkasie, Pennsylvania rural route address. January 23, 1947. On personal letterhead to Mrs. Stefan Zweig, Stamford, Connecticut. In full: "Dear Mrs. Zweig: I received the books which you so kindly sent me. The biography I enjoyed very much indeed. Since I do not read German, I sent the other book to the John Day Company. Now I must report that they feel that they cannot accept this book. The fact is that they publish a number of books written by Japanese, and are in direct contact with persons in Japan. In general, it is their policy to publish books by authors directly from a country rather than through translation. The book will be returned to you through the John Day office. Thanking you again for your kindness, I am Yours sincerely Pearl S. Buck PSB HS". Buck (1892-1973), born to Presbyterian missionaries, spent the first forty years of her life in China, the setting of many of her books. She was the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature (1938). Best known for her novels about China (including The Good Earth; 1932 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction), Buck wrote over 70 novels as well as biographies, an autobiography (My Several Worlds, 1954), dramas, children's literature and translations from the Chinese. Lightly toned and creased. Ink correction to addressee's name. Folded five times and unfolded. Pinhead-sized stain in right margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
