    Fergus Hume. Three Autograph Letters, Signed. [London]: [July?] 7, 1890-April 15, 1893. Original letters, one on The Junior Travellers Club stationery.
    Fergus Hume. Three Autograph Letters, One Addressed to a "Miss Crommelin [?]," One Addressed "Dear Sirs," Presumably to His Publishers. [London]: unpublished correspondence, [July?] 7, 1890-April 15, 1893. Signed. Two letters, one bifolium each, one on The Junior Travellers Club stationery, text on rectos and versos, both hand-signed. In the letter addressed to Miss Crommelin, Hume appears to be debating titles for an upcoming publication, listing several. The letter that appears to have been addressed to his publishers was enclosed with corrected page proofs for a story ("The [illegible] Banshee"), which, he remarks, were originally sent to the wrong address. Leaves very softly dulled with age, with soft creases and a handful of scattered spots of foxing. Near fine.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
