ARTHUR THOMAS QUILLER-COUCH
The highly-regarded British literary figure sends letter to colleague in an autograph exchange
Autograph letter signed: "A.T. Quiller-Couch/ "Q"" in black ink. 1 page, 4x6. February 8, 1894. The Haven, Fowey, Cornwall, England. In full: "Dear Sir, Certainly I cannot refuse so small a favour. Indeed the gain is mine, to have exchanged autographs with one who has "thoroughly digested" Dead Man's Rock. I had believed the feat impossible. With many congratulations on your powers of assimilation (which I trust you will henceforth exercise on both books) believe me, Faithfully yours". Sir Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch (1863-1944)was a British writer who published most of his work under the title "Q", and is best known for his anthologyOxford Book of English Verse (1250-1900)(1900), and for his literary criticism, which guided many prominent authors of the day such as Helene Hanff and John Mortimer. His own works include fictions such as Dead Man's Rock (1887), The Blue Pavilons (1891), The Adventures of Harry Revel (1903) and True Tilda (1909), verse books Green Bays (1893) and Poems and Ballads (1896), plus multiple anthologies. Quiller-Couch was knighted in 1910, and in 1912 was appointed King Edward VII professor of English literature at Cambridge and simultaneous elected fellow of Jesus College. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Stains throughout. Creased throughout. Left edge frayed. Adhesive stains and slight tears on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
