[Millais, John Everett- Autograph Letter Signed to Dalziels] About The Moxon Tennyson of 1857
by Millais, John Everett
One page. An interesting and early letter Millais letter (June, 1856), in his heyday, to the famous engravers, the Dalziel Brothers, who at that time were collaborating with other engravers on the famous "Moxon Tennyson" ['Poems' by Tennyson, London, Edward Moxon, 1857], which would be published in less than a year from the date of this letter, with many illustrations contributed by Millais (and others). Millais is here divulging monetary amounts he received from Moxon for the designs for the book (which obviously were kept by Moxon), and, by way of suggesting to the Dalziels, he relates a price for drawings. He further provides details as per certain proofs the Dalziels had asked about. "Annat Lodge, Perth, June, '56. My dear Sir, The sum I get for each of the designs for Mr. Moxon is fifteen pounds. The price of the two I have sent to you will be the same. I shall be glad to have the money remitted to me here at your convenience; I have mounted the two proofs you ask for, in a book, but if you very particularly want them, I will send them. Yours very truly, Mssrs. Dalziel brothers. John Everett Millais." Slight remnants of glue where once mounted on verso along internal edge, else very good. (Inventory #: 3021)
