Banjo Paterson Autograph Letter And Ephemera

1939. Autograph letter on Australian Club letterhead, dated and signed by A.B. Paterson in ink, accompanied with binder of ephemera laid down on foolscap pages, collected between 1930 and 1957, some pages stamped “From J.K. Moir collection”, 15.3 x 20.3cm. Slight soiling and old folds to letter, laid down on old backing. Some wear and discolouration to items in binder.

Letter reads “10.1.39. Dear Mr Moir, I should have acknowledged your book before but a touch of illness intervened. I was, as you say, interested in the compilation & it should have a value as the old times fade away & [illegible] are in danger of being forgotten. Yours truly, A.B. Paterson.” Letterhead reads “Australian Club. G.P.O. Box 169 D. Sydney.” Ephemera pertains to Banjo Paterson or his work, and includes press clippings collected between 1930 and 1957 (most dated by hand or by stamp), a Book Collectors’ Society of Australia newsletter, and a signed copy of a 1946 lecture on Banjo Paterson by Frank Brophy (Aust. 1885-1954), active member of the Australian Poetry Lovers’, and Henry Lawson Societies.
