J.L. GARVIN
The Editor of The Observer sends a update on writing The Encyclopedia Britannica: "It is practically finished!"
Typed letter signed: "J.L. Garvin" in black ink. 1 page, 7x9. 28 April 1926, London, England. On his letterhead as Editor, to "My dear Mr. Dawson", Headington, Oxford, in full: "Thank you indeed for your very kind letter. You are amongst the few persons whose good opinion we value in these matters because we know you to be amongst the few who are genuinely competent to judge. As for the Encyclopawdia [sic] Britannica, the work has been going on for a long time wand is practically finished. Nothing remains but to prepare for the printers the last contributions which are already in the office. I only wish I had known earlier that you would have been willing to do more work for it. I made a special effort to give the German contributors their chance, but except Mortiz Bonn and one or two others, their historical and political contributions have been disappointing, whereas the French have made the very best of their chance. Yours sincerely". Garvin served as editor-in-chief of the 14th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica (1926-1932). James Louis Garvin (1868-1947) became the editor of London's historic Sunday newspaper The Observer in 1908. In the early years Garvin transformed the newspaper into his political platform, gaining nationwide supporters as a Unionist. During World War I Garvin he used his friendly ties with Winston Churchill and First Sea Lord Admiral John Fisher to give his readers first access to War news. An editor, he also served as editor of Pall Mall Gazette (1912-1915). He was a columnist for the Sunday Express and the Daily Telegraph shortly before his death. Normal mailing folds. Slightly creased. Corners creased. Lightly toned. Pencil notes throughout (unknown hand). Otherwise, fine condition.
