TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS) and AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED (ANS), each 1 page, dated 9 May 1931 and 11 June, n.y. [but 1931], to Mr. [George] Macy. Priestley's first letter to George Macy, founder of the Limited Editions Club, forwards the "introduction [not present] to your TOM JONES you asked me to write. It seems to me to do all that is necessary, covering a good deal of ground, and I hope you will like it... Unless there is some important query, I don't need proof; but I would like a copy of the book when it appears." The holograph note acknowledges receipt of Macy's cheque; Priestley is "glad you like the Introduction" and he looks forward to seeing the book. The Limited Editions Club edition of Fielding's TOM JONES with Priestley's introduction was published in 1931 in an edition of 1500 copies. Faint mailing folds and tiny paper clip marks at upper left corners of each letter, else fine. (#96248).
