GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
Playwright Bernard Shaw sends an autograph note asking a question.
Autograph Letter Signed: "GBS", 1p, 4½x2. The Malhorn Hotel, Great Malhorn, Worcester, 1923 April 26. On card imprinted "With Bernard Shaw's compliment". In full: "Tell me what the enclosed is all about: I haven't time to read it. You need not translate it for me. From what you say I conclude that the pictures are worthless." The plays of Irish dramatistGeorge Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) were characteristically instructional, often including a teacher role model, such as Henry Higgins in the popular Pygmalion (1913), which was later adapted as the musical, My Fair Lady (1956; film 1964). Shaw began writing plays in 1892. His first, Widowers' Houses, voiced his opinions on society and world reform. Throughout his 58 years as a playwright, Shaw, who received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925, covered many topics, letting his humor speak for itself. His other major works include You Never Can Tell (1895), Man and Superman (1902), Major Barbara (1905), The Doctor's Dilemma (1906) and Saint Joan (1923). Mid-vertical tear repaired with tape not near initials. Slightly soiled. Lightly creased and worn at corners. Overall, fine condition.
