English glass painter and novelist (1875-1923). All five items in very good condition, and all but the third and fifth stamped and docketed. ITEM ONE: two pages, 4to. He will be 'delighed and honoured by reading a paper before the R.S.A.' Gives a choice of dates and states 'I shall want a lantern.' He wants 'to draw the Society's attention to the fact that the various processes in making a modern window follow the developments of stained glass from the 11th (or perhaps the 9th) century to the beginning of the 15th.' Explains his thesis in some detail, and discusses possible titles. ITEM TWO: two pages, 4to. Asks Menzies to 'fix me up' for a date other than that booked for him by Hardinge-Tyler for the Archaeological Institute. 'I have also got the subject matter of the paper out of joint'. Explains why. 'As a result I have promised Hardinge-Tyler & yourself the same paper, like a fool! This won't do', so he will 'get out a paper for the R.S.A. on the technical developments of the 14th century'. ITEM THREE: two pages, 8vo. Thanks Menzies for the date he has chosen. 'The XIV century developments in stained-glass are really very interesting.' Gives brief explanation. ITEM FOUR: one page, 4to. Gives alternate titles for the lecture. 'I haven't touched the paper yet, being overworked, but you shall have a piece of it, by the middle of April.' Brief discussion of his working methods. Hopes to see Menzies at the Savage Club on a certain date. ITEM FIVE: two pages, 8vo. Thanks Menzies for his letter, 'with flattering enclosures'. 'I would have answered before, but have been flat on my back for a week with a displaced semi-lunar cartilage of the left knee, & am only allowed to sit up today. Rotten & silly!' Agrees 'that Professor Lethaby is quite a good man. Failing him, why not G. McNeill Rushforth? - or Sir Cecil Smith. [.] Do you know Lord Cranford of Balcarres? [.] for Heaven's sake, keep this to yourself'. The lot, N° de ref. de la librería 3753
