Both letters 4to, 2 pp. Both texts clear and complete, and both in fair condition, with dog-eared corners. In the first letter O'Conor writes that he has 'heard from Miss Maartens', and that he is sending 'Dr van Maanen's' study of the author. 'Miss Maartens suggests that you and I might meet, which appeals greatly to me, for I enjoyed your review of the Maarten Maartens letters and have also heard about you from my friend John Gould Fletcher.' Gives a time when 'Miss Maartens is coming to the London Library to read some Dutch' for him, and he suggests that Burdett join them. In the second letter O'Conor gives his opinion that Maartens 'did not belong entirely to a past time', believing that 'some of his genre pictures, particularly those of the Dutch peasants, foreshadow the realism of our own day'. He is 'so glad' that Burdett 'will rescue M. M. from forgotten time'. Burdett's essay appeared in the magazine 'The Nineteenth Century and After' in 1931. N° de ref. de la librería 8629
