Description

Sydney Goodsir Smith’s copy, signed by him in pencil to the fep. Laid in is a note from Peter Russell (poet) on a letter from Helen Lehmann (sister of Rosamund) of the Society of Authors re submission of a book (unspecified but presumably ‘So Late into the Night: fifty lyrics 1944-1948’ published by Russell in 1952) by Smith for the Somerset Maugham Award that year. and some pages torn from a notebook with some book titles listed in what looks like Smith’s hand. On the back of the letter from Russell are some notes by Smith which might bear a closer look as some lines appear to be poetry.
