1 Mitchell, Donald Grant Ik Marvel. Autograph Letter, Signed.

No date, but someone, perhaps the recipient (illegible, perhaps Mr. Sanborn?), has written "June, 1865" at the top. He is complaining that Houghton has sent him no proofs as yet- he is expecting about 120 pages of proof - and asking his correspondent to find out why. Also, "I am prodigiously mortified by the poor hand that the engraver here has made of the cuts....they are terribly scratchy & I am afraid will deface the book more than they will aid it. What say You? Could they be touched up for the better? Could Houghton have it done?.....Please reply immediately...". Houghton is probably H.O. Houghton, the Boston printer-publisher, who founded the Riverside Press in Cambridge in 1852. Mitchell typically used New York publishers and Houghton partnered with New York publisher Melanchthon Hurd in 1864. One sheet folded to make four pages, two are used, about 22 lines. Mounting stains at the bottom edge of p.4, folded twice for mailing. A Fine letter.
