Autograph Letter Signed: "L. Gaylord Clark" in ink. 7¾x9¾. Dated December 10, 1934. Two handwritten pages. Sent to Emma C. Embury, an American author herself who was regularly published in the New York Mirror. In Part: "The K. for December, enclosed is, we think, as/good as any we have issued. There is a good va-/riety from established peers. I hope the whole/may meet your approbation". The “K.” refers to the recent monthly issue of The Knickerbocker, one of the first issued under the director of Clark. Lewis Gaylord Clark (1808-1873) was an author who served as chief editor and publisher of The Knickerbocker, a literary magazine based in New York. He turned the magazine into an influential force in the American consciousness, with the help of significant contributions from famous writers including Washington Irving and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, among many others. Clark served as editor from 1834-1861, and the magazine itself outlasted him by just four years. Mailing creases. Minor smudging. Mounting remnants on back page. Otherwise, fine condition.
