Autograph Letter Signed, 4 pages, 8vo, March 16, 1912, to Edgar Speyer

"Scott's final letters written as he realized the last hopes of survival had gone epitomize for many the concept of heroic failure. This
first letter to Sir Edgar Speyer is certainly full of memorable and moving phrases but also shows a man keenly aware of the need to safeguard his reputation and to provide for the future of his loved ones. It is a fascinating and rare document which fully justified the high price for which it was sold."
