CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER
Signed autograph letter (1886) discussing Houghton-Mifflin's plans to publish a uniform edition of his books
Autograph Letter signed: "Chas. Dudley Warner", 1 page, 4½x7. Hartford, Connecticut, 1886 May 25. To "Wm Woodward Esq", in full: "Messers Houghton, Mifflin & Co., Boston, who published most of my books, intend to issue a uniform edition of them - so far I think only three [?] of them in a similar style. Yours sincerely". Charles Dudley Warner (1829-1900) edited the Hartford Courant and later Harper's magazine. He also wrote several travelogues, and edited The American Men of Letters. With Mark Twain, he co-authored The Gilded Age (1873), a biting satire about the corruption of post Civil War America. (Mark Twain was a pall bearer at his funeral.) Warner was the first President of the National Institute of Arts and Letters, and at his death was President of the American Social Science Association. Ink lightly smeared. Fine condition.
