Autograph letter signed ("F.A. Steel"), one page, 8vo, on blindstamped letterhead of Talgarth Hall, Machynlleth, 15 January 1908. To "Sir" (identified in a previous dealer's description as being from the files of publisher, Edward Arnold), explaining that his letter has gone unanswered so long due to illness, and writing: "I am greatly obliged by your letter, but the book is on first refusal to Mr Heinemann. Possibly he may not accept my terms. In that case I shall be glad to let you look through it & make your decision. I do not know that the book is great -- the theme is; but it is extraordinarily difficult to handle. . . ." Stamped by the recipient in purple ink, "16 JAN 1908"; perhaps a trifle browned; near-fine.

Flora Annie Steel (1847-1929); English novelist who wrote mainly about India. (Item ID: 18933)
