JAMES BRYCE, 1st VISCOUNT BRYCE
The scholar, diplomat and politician is unable to oblige a request.
Autograph Letter signed: "J Bryce", 1 page, 4½x7½. 15 Waterloo Place, S. W. [London]. In full: "I would if I could oblige you and Lt. Sharp, but I really cannot. [illegible phrase], but it is not nearly good enough to succeed in these days of competition. Yours truly". James Bryce (1838-1922), elevated to 1st Viscount Bryce in 1914, was a British scholar, jurist and politician. A Liberal Member of Parliament from 1880 to 1907, he held several important governmental posts, including Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, President of the Board of Trade, Chief Secretary for Ireland, and chairman of a royal commission on secondary education. Bryce, who wrote a landmark study, The American Commonwealth (1888), was British Ambassador to the US from 1907 to 1913. During World War I, the Bryce Commission documented alleged German atrocities in Belgium, and Viscount Bryce was outspoken on the Armenian genocide. After the war he served on the International Court and advocated for the League of Nations. He opposed women's suffrage. Toned. Edges frayed from binding. Multiple mailing folds. Worn at corners. Ink light but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
