OGDEN NASH. Early TLS: "Ogden Nash", 1p, 5½x8½. Garden City, N.Y., 1928 March 16. On letterhead of "Doubleday, Doran and Company/Incorporated/Publishers" to D'Annunzio Cohen, The New York World, New York. In full: "What with your swell pieces in the Conning Tower and prowling publishers, I suppose you have already made arrangements for the publication of any manuscripts you may have on hand, but I hope not. Anyhow, would you care to talk things over? I'd like very much to have luncheon sometime next week if this would be convenient for you." Nash (1902-1971), best known for his humorous poetry, started writing advertising copy for Doubleday, Page Publishing in New York in 1925. That year, the company published his first book for children, The Cricket of Caradon. In 1927, the year before this letter and three years before Nash's first published poem, "Spring Comes to Murray Hill", appeared in the "New Yorker" magazine, Doubleday merged with George H. Doran Company, becoming the country's largest publisher. Nash, who would write 19 books of poetry and collaborate on a musical comedy (One Touch of Venus, 1943) joined the staff of the "New Yorker" in 1932. His first collections of verse, Free Wheeling and Hard Lines had been published in 1931. Creased. Lightly stained at blank margins. Overall, fine condition.
