JOHN TENNIEL(1820 - 1914) British artist and cartoonist best remembered for his illustrations in Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. Nice content A.L.S. "John Tenniel" 3pp. 8vo., London, Oct. 24, 1898, to his friend, noted artist William Frith. In part: "......How good of you to send me such a nice little letter & what a ruffian you must have thought of me for not acknowledging it sooner......I am so glad you liked the last week's Punch Cartoon - it is always delightful to find one's work appreciated but it is doubly so when appreciation takes the trouble to express itself in such kind & cheering terms, especially in regard to a fellow's 'form' (!) at this time of day......I think that quite the funniest thing in connection with it is that poor old Punch had has his windows smashed - why it might have been mine!...". Mounting stains to verso with a touch of showthrough, otherwise neatly penned and very good.
Estimate $ 300-400
