SHAW, GEORGE BERNARD . (1856 -1950). Irish playwright and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925.
Autograph Note Signed, on a post card photograph of Shaw, postmarked London, (?) 1908.
He writes to Erica Cotterill (1881-1950), in full. Yes, yes; but oh! So unimportant. Dreadfully dull. He signs with initials, GBS. (Item ID: 2110)
Cotterill wrote the play. A Professional Socialist published in 1908, the year of Shaws note to her. She began a correspondence with Shaw in 1905 after he replied to her letter inspired by one of his plays. While he offered advice on writing as well as tickets to some of his plays, her letters to him suggest a growing fantasy relationship with Shaw. Well after their correspondence ended, he worried that she might turn up again. This brief note was written during their period of correspondence.
