GEORGE GERSHWIN. TLS, 1 p., 4to., December 1, 1926, on his personal letterhead. In full: “I am only too pleased to have you add my autograh to your collection and certainly hope it will be of interest to your son when he grows up.” Very good condition, with bisecting folds; mild toning, mainly to the edges; mild creasing along the right edge, one crease touching the final letter of the signature; and a small block of toning from tape remnant at the top left corner.
