Autograph Letter Signed


KENT, James. Autograph letter signed. New York: September 26, 1831. Oblong sheet (7-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches). $400.

Autograph letter signed by James Kent, the influential New York jurist and legal commentator.

Kent writes about the publication of one of his speeches: “Dear Sir: I return the M.S. a& Proof Sheets by the Steam Hudson as you requested. I have added a plain title page. I prefer the name of an address to that of an oration as containing rather less rhetorical pretension. The sheets were very correctly printed, & most of my few corrections are in the M.S… I have no introductory remarks to make, only what I have added to show that the publication is not my act. Yours very respectfully (signed) James Kent.”

Near-fine, with remnants of previous mounting on verso.
