THOMAS HOOD
Modest assessment of his own book: "If worth reading at all it is only on account of some facts it contains relative to Hungary."
Autograph Letter signed: "Thos. Hood", 1 page, 4½x7¼. Gatton Park, 1840 July 6. To "Dear Sir Henry", in full: "I have ventured to inflict my 'book' upon you, which was carefully printed & more carefully written. If worth reading at all it is only on account of some facts it contains relative to Hungary. I am just off to Asia Minor. Believe me very truly yours". British poet and humorist Thomas Hood (1799-1845) contributed many poems and essays to local magazines and newspapers while working as an engraver. In 1821 he became a sub-editor at London Magazine, a post which brought contact with many literary figures. Beginning in 1830, he published a Comic Annual, a satire magazine full of puns. The book he mentions in this letter must be Up the Rhine (1840). Mounting residue on verso. ¾x¾ in piece missing from bottom right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
