BLYTON, Enid. Enid Blyton ephemera including an autographed note signed. 1926-1965.
A small group of Blyton-related items consisting of:
An original black-and-white press photograph of the author "Look - No Tonsils" (205 x 250mm), stamped on the reverse "P.A. Reuter", dating from December 10th 1958, with an attached typed note describing Blyton inspecting the throat of 14-year old Colin Spaul who had returned to rehearsals to play Noddy in Noddy In Toyland after having his tonsils removed; with some edge creasing and one short edge split (10mm).
An 8-page Song Cycle "Autumn Days" by Cecil Sharman, with words by Enid Blyton, printed by Novello in 1926, stapled to spine; some bleed to staples but otherwise very good. Blyton's first book Child Whispers, printed by J. Saville & Co., was published only 4 years earlier, in 1922.
A single personalised letter in facsimile, printed in colours, sent from Enid Blyton's magazine (circa 1958) and announcing to the recipient that they had won a prize; folded and lightly marked.
An autographed note signed, "My dear Dorothy", and dated November 22 '65, on blue card letterhead (Green Hedges, Penn Road, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire) referencing the opening of the new Sun Room provided by the Round Table, and hoping to attend; with a short edge tear, now invisibly repaired.
