    ALS from Maugham to Arnold Bennett

    W. Somerset Maugham. Autograph Letter Signed to Arnold Bennett, Initialed and Dated by Bennett.

    A note from Maugham extending a dinner invitation to the writer Arnold Bennett, written on notepaper with the printed address "6. Chesterfield Street, W." and signed "W. S. Maugham." Bennett has initialed and dated the letter "16-10-19." Letter and print of a pen and ink portrait of Maugham matted and framed together. Very good.

    Maugham and Bennett were friends from Maugham's days in Paris in the early 1900s. From the Collection of Norman F. Moore.
