Description

    

Letter from Alfred Harcourt of publishers Harcourt, Brace and Company, Inc. regarding corrected proofs of Eliza Fay's book. Alfred Harcourt acknowledges Forster's concerns of the importance of the manufacturing department following copy exactly. Harcourt discusses his plan to publish the American edition almost simultaneously alongside The Hogarth Press. He discusses avoiding leakage,  and wishes to avoid the British edition selling before the American one. Harcourt ends the letter estimating that at least 3,000 copies of the British edition of 'A Passage to India' reached the American Market.

This letter contains handwritten pencil notes.
