1981. An airmail note, written from Oxford, declining an engagement on the grounds that he will be out of the country. Ellmann, one of the leading literary critics of his time, was a Joyce scholar; the recipient of the note directed a Bloomsday festival on Martha's Vineyard for over 35 years, among other Joyce-related activities. Jagged marginal tears from opening, else near fine. No Binding. Near Fine. (Inventory #: 032644)
