About this Item

(Two pieces). A handwritten note on Shaw's personal notecard, 2" x 4 1/2" imprinted "With Bernard Shaw's compliments/ Ayot St. Lawrence, Welwyn, Herts". Upon this Shaw has written in ink: "You must be abnormally greedy if you want moretributesthan you have already had. What can I say that the others have not said, except that for a modern poet you have a wonderfully true ear. GBS" and dated 16/1/1944. Accompanying is a 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" formal photograph, somewhat toned to sepia, on heavy stock picturing a formally attired Shaw reading a book. PLEASE NOTE that the inscribed card apparently had been kept touching the photograph resulting in offsetting to the photo in the exact size of the note card. Notecard also has a small paper-clip rust mark. Bookseller Inventory # E13860
