Charles Dickens Third-person Autograph Letter Signed

13 Feb

Third-person ALS, signed within the text, one page, 4.5 x 4.5, personal Gads Hill Place letterhead, May 29, 1866. Letter to Mr. Barker, in part: “Mr. Charles Dickens presents his compliments to Mr. Barker, and begs to say (in reply to Mr. Barker’s note of enquiry) that he believes he has never seen the picture in question.” Double-matted and framed with a photo of Dickens writing at his desk to an overall size of 16 x 11. In fine condition, with a few light surface creases and trimmed edges. After separating from his wife Catherine in 1858, Dickens undertook an immensely popular and lucrative reading tour that would absorb most of his creative energies for the next decade; his lone output during the year of this letter was a collaborative set of short Christmas stories which includes the famous ghost story The Signal-Man, a story likely based on the Clayton Tunnel rail crash of 1861. A particularly clean and bold example of the famed English novelist’s penmanship. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
