Paris, 1932. Two pages, on two quarto sheets of Plain Edition letterhead. Old folds from mailing, a few small nicks and soft creases, but very good. Two boilerplate typescript letters promoting to booksellers Gertrude Stein's HOW TO WRITE, published the preceding November as the third Plain Edition. Both are signed in ink "A.B. Toklas" in her distinctive hand. One has a date emendation and insertion of recipient's name and address in original typescript by Toklas, and a pencil highlight in the left margin next to the terms is likely the work of the recipient at "Rosengren's Nook [sic] Store" then still located in Chicago. The letters emphasize the book's positive reception, citing and quoting reviews by Marcel Brion and Ellen du Poy. While one might assume a number of such letters were posted at the time by Toklas and Stein, few appear to have survived. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76225)
