About this Item

This American correspondent covered France, Germany and Russia pre-World War One before abandoning journalsim for fiction; his 1917 novel "His Family" was awarded the first Pulitzer Prize for fiction (at that time called the Pulitzer Prize for novel) in 1918; other books include "The Voice of the Street" (1906), "Russian Sketches" (1925) and "Great White Hills of New Hampshire" (1946). Two items: First, a TNS, 1p, 8¼" X 7", New York, NY, 1923 April 11. Addressed to Professor Albert Johannsen, author of "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (University of Oklahoma Press, 1950), the definitive reference work and bibliography on the subject. Fine. On letterhead of "The Foreign Press Service," Poole transmits "the first page of one of the early drafts of my new novel 'DANGER' which is to be published early next month." Large, bold signature. The second item is the aforementioned draft page, a TM (unsigned), 1p, 8½" X 11", n.p., n.d. Very good. Cheap stock paper, thus moderately age toned, but with no brittleness and no edge chips. Typescript of the first page of chapter one of the novel "Danger," which was published by Macmillan in New York in 1923. Neat, double-spaced and large margins -- Poole calls this an early draft, but this particular page displays no corrections or insertions. Johannsen pencils "Original MS. / Ernest Poole / Apr 11 - 1923" light and miniscule in the lower left corner. Johannsen's original 8½" X 11" file folder, bearing a printed "Collection of Albert Johannsen" label (partly filled in by Johannsen), accompanies this item. Bookseller Inventory # 18105
