Letter from The Hogarth Press to John Maynard Keynes (24/11/1930)



[[MS 2750/210/5]]


J. M. Keynes, Esq., 
46 Gordon Square, W.C.1.


24th November, 1930.


Dear Sir,




I am extremely sorry that owing to an error on my part your name was included on my 'authors' remainder list'.  As a matter of fact we have 750 soiled copies of the above book, which were in the first instance returned from Messrs. W. H. Smith from their 'on sale' copies, and we have resold all that were in a fit state to sell, but this 750 are so badly soiled that they cannot be sold in the ordinary way.  We propose, therefore, to sell them to a remainder agent with your approval.  This will leave us with a balance of [*600*] copies.


[faint signature visible] [*Peggy Belsher*]



Yours faithfully, | The Hogarth Press. | Secretary.

The Hogarth Press apologises to J. M. Keynes regarding including his name on a remainder list. The letter discusses soiled copies of his book that are not fit for sale and it is these copies that need to be remaindered. They state the remaining balance of copies.
