[With] [11" x 6" Printed List of People Who Attended the Banquet]. [And] Darrow, Clarence. [Filene, Edward A. (1860-1937)].

Some edgewear to photo, upper left corner of image repaired, light toning and fold lines to list, early annotations to photograph, a few chips and nicks to edges of both. Items mounted on 16" x 32" foam-core board. Letter, which is not mounted, has some toning, two horizontal fold lines, a few light pencil lines (offsetting from another document) and glue residue to verso, probably from mounting in an album, otherwise fine. Three items in all. $1,750. * There are two captions at the foot of the image. One identifies the photography company, the other reads "Dinner to Lincoln Steffens and Characters in His Book Given by Edward A. Filene. Ritz Carlton Hotel April 27, 1931." The list, which includes several media people, social reformers and reform-minded politicians, such as Ida Tarbell and Bernard Baruch, is captioned: "Cast of Characters from "The Autobiography of Lincoln Steffens" and from his next book, present at the dinner given to the author and his characters by Edward A. Filene, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, April 27, 1931." Some of the attendees are identified in a contemporary hand. Darrow is seated at the center of the main table next to Steffens; Ruby Darrow is sitting at the right end. Darrow, in his letter, thanks Filene for the invitation to the event, "which I am very glad to accept" and adds: "Mrs. Darrow is here with me. May I bring her along?" This late request may be the reason why Ruby Darrow is seated several places away from Clarence. Bookseller Inventory # 62205
