About this Item

3 pages on a bifolium sheet of mourning stationery, 12mo, previous folds, modern red ink scribble at top of the first page, mounted on stiff grey card; very good. Dated February 28th, 1883, Boxmoor House. A heated response, most likely addressed to Partridge of the London publishing firm S.W. Partridge, in which she demands her rejected manuscript to be promptly returned, since ".he [Partridge] thinks 'the book wd have but a limited sale' that is not quite an encouragement for Lady Alicia to publish it!!" Blackwood, a prominent Victorian traveller and philanthropist, appears to have tried her hand at writing children's literature ("She has several other stories of birds & animals"), but was clearly rebuffed by this major London publishing firm of juveniles.
