ARTHUR à BECKETT
The Punch writer asks to see the proofs of colleague Henry Furriss' artwork.
Autograph Letter signed: "Arthur à Beckett", 1 page, 4½x7. Whitefriars, London, no date. To "Dear Sir", in full: "Will you kindly send me by bearer the proofs of Mr. Furniss' cuts. Yours sincerely". English journalist and humorist Arthur William à Beckett (1844-1909) wrote for Punch magazine (1874-1902) and was editor of the Sunday Times (1891-1895). He wrote several humorous books, beginning with Comic Guide to the Royal Academy (1864). He also wrote to comedy plays, and a novel Fallen Among Thieves (1869). Edges frayed. Harry Furniss (1854-1925) was an illustrator and caricaturist who drew for Punch from 1880 to 1894. He illustrated two novels by Lewis Carroll, and - after moving to America - drew the first animated cartoon film for Thomas Edison. Toned with multiple mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
