Descripción Undated, but docketed 'Jan. 31 '., 1851. 12mo: 2 pp. 28 lines. Good, on lightly aged paper, with unobtrusive small spike hole and traces of mounts adhering to four corners. Interesting animated letter between a Victorian author and his printer. Relates to Tupper's 'A hymn for All Nations; translated into thirty languages; nearly fifty versions; the music composed expressly by S. Sebastian Wesley.' (1851). Asks his printer to 'Attend to Hymn as within' (not present). 'We cannot help all this trouble'. Tupper has written to Dr Gavassi, but has had no answer: 'get Rossetti's as soon as you can. / I've just attempted a Pole; & several other tongues are coming. It shall do.' He is planning a three-month trip to the United States in the coming March, and will 'see what I can do in French Canada with an early copy of P. P: - you can give me a letter to Barnum [Phineas Taylor Barnum, the celebrated American showman?]; or some book-publisher at Montreal. I think we may (I speak for you as well as for me) get something for early sheets out West'. He is writing to 'Pickersgill, the RA [the painter Henry William Pickersgill (1782-1875), a Royal Academician], (who has painted me) to see whether or not it might be engraved for our book'. Tells Brettell not to be frightened of 'G ': 'he's a stout, staunch, Anglo Saxon'. He will see Brettell that Tuesday: 'I've engaged with Leech [the illustrator John Leech (1817-1864)] at 12'. Asks him to do 'nothing definite, please, about the possible Nurse: only enquire: thanks.'. Nº de ref. de la librería 6363
