CONRAD AIKEN. TLS: "Conrad Aiken", 1p, 6x8½. New York, 1956 November 19. To Mr. Lohner. In full: "Thank you for your letter, which has been forwarded to me here from Brewster. I shall of course be very happy to have you translate a volume of my short stories into German. There is a collection, The Short Stories of Conrad Aiken, Duell Sloan & Pearce. And as far as I know, the translation rights are mine. However, I think the best procedure would be for you to get in touch with my agent, Bernice Baumgarten, Brandt & Brandt, 101 Park Avenue, who will be able to tell you whatever you need to know, and with whom the matter of fees or royalties should be taken up. As for the matter of making a selection, I would suggest that after you have had a look at the collected stories we might meet over a cocktail and try to come to a common choice. I shall be in and out of New York this winter (part of the time in Washington) but this address will always reach me." In addition to his short stories, Aiken (1990-1973) wrote novels and poems, winning the 1930 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for his Selected Poems. Lightly creased. Paper clip impression at upper left. Fine condition.
