Autograph Note Signed / Autograph Manuscript Signed.

Popular novelist and short story writer whose umpteen volumes include "The Wayfarers," "The Unforeseen" and "The Suburban Whirl." Two items: First, an ANS, 1p, 5" X 6½", Orange, NJ, 1923 January 16. Addressed to Albert Johannsen (1871-1962), a University of Chicago geology professor who authored "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (1950), the definitive reference work on the subject. Near fine. In response to a request for an original working draft page of a manuscript, Cutting cordially replies: "Will the enclosed serve your purpose? It is rather more legible than most!" Signed boldly in full. Second, an AMS, 1p, 8" X 10", n.p., n.y. Very good. Mild edge wear and a bit of age toning. On cheap lined paper, Cutting has hurriedly penned in black ink some lines from a story, complete with a few crossouts and additions. Along the top, she has added, "From / Fairy Godmother / story finished March 1920. Published in Woman's Home Comp[anion]," and at the bottom she signs in full. If this example is, as Cutting notes, "rather more legible than most," we would hate to see one of her less legible pages! Nice example of a working draft from a popular ladies author of the turn of the century. Accompanied by Johannsen's original 8½" X 11" file folder, bearing a printed "Collection of Albert Johannsen" label (partly filled in by Johannsen). Item #27015

Price: $95.00
