Autograph Note Signed. John Passmore EDWARDS.

Autograph Note Signed.

This English journalist and newspaper owner was at heart a reformer and philanthropist; his largesse helped create schools, hospitals, convelescent homes, art galleries and 24 libraries; twice he refused a knighthood from Queen Victoria. ANS, 1p, 5" X 7¼", London, England, 1903 April 2. Addressed to "Madam." Very good. Cryptic note in response to a request: "Though I have been asked many times to answer questions somewhat similar to yours I have never answered one of them. You are, however, quite welcome to make what use you may think proper of the enclosed...." An attractive example. From the collection of University of Chicago geology professor Albert Johannsen (1871-1962), author of "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (1950), the definitive reference work on the subject. Johannsen's original 8½" X 11" file folder, bearing his printed "Collection of Albert Johannsen" label (partly filled in by Johannsen), accompanies this item. Item #26771
