SIR LEWIS MORRIS
Handwritten letter talking about his friends stage productions
Autograph Letter signed: "Lewis Morris", 1 page, 4½x7. London, England, 1899 July 17. On letterhead of The Athenaeum, Pall Mall. S.W. In full: "I see by the Pall Mall that Phillips has had his play accepted by George Alexander and that it has been revised with a view to production. Is there any chance of Gycia being equally fortunate, or should I say more so, as I greatly doubt whether his will ever be produced on English stage. I bought your Bazaar book capital, as so to give it a good read at my library in the country. I hope it sold well. Yours faithfully" Sir Lewis Morris (1833-1907) was a poet of the Anglo-Welsh school. Born in South Wales, he studied at Jesus College in Oxford and graduated in 1956. The poet published several works including Songs of Two Worlds (1875), The Epic of Hades (1877), The Ode of Life (1880), Poetical Works (1882), Songs Unsung (1883), Gycia: A Tragedy in Five Acts (1886), Songs of Britain (1887), Harvest Tide: A Book of Verse (1900) and The New Rambler from Desk to Platform (1905). In 1895, Morris was knighted by Queen Victoria. Normal mailing fold. Lightly frayed at left edge. Lightly worn at edges. Lightly toned at edges. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
