Lot Details
SHAW, GEORGE BERNARD.
Printed Postcard Signed ("GBS"), with holograph addition, London, January 30, 1914, to Mrs. Ernestine Mills, matted, being Shaw's printed rejection of invitations to make public appearances. The printed portion reads, in part, "Mr. Bernard Shaw ... is now obliged to restrict his appearances as a public speaker.... He therefore begs secretaries of societies to strike his name from their lists of available speakers." Shaw underlines in pen the line which states that he does not "speak at public dinners" and adds a note in holograph at the bottom reading, "What an abuse of my unsuspecting affability! I'm surprised at you." The postcard is dated at the bottom and addressed on reverse in holograph.
