Sale 38 Lot 1385

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW(1856-1950) British playwright and critic with classic acerbic wit. His works include Pygmalion, The Devil's Disciple, and much criticism of the arts. A.N.S. on the verso of a postcard addressed to a man in Iowa, in full: "Thanks for the camel [cigarette?]. It is worth an autograph; so here goes! G. Bernard Shaw". Fine, matted with a fine postcard photo and set into a black wood frame. A bit surprising, as Shaw was notoriously stingy, if not downright mean, in doling out his autograph!
Estimate $ 200-300
