Wells, H. G.
Price: 40.00 USD
[Maryins (?)]: 1933. Original silver print of candid photograph (7 x 11.5 cm; 2.75 x 4.75" inclusive of borders). Slightly curled, small rust spot at edge, light soiling to verso, otherwise very good. A candid photo from the rear of Wells holding hands with a woman while seated on an outside patio under the shade of a large tree. A large hat obscures the woman's face but Wells is clearly visible in profile. An early manuscript note on the verso, in ink, reads: "'Elizabet' talking to H.G. Wells, To be enlarged," and a further note in another hand appears below: "Photograph taken by Derek Patmore at Maryins [?] in 1933."
