JOHN BETJEMAN (1906-1984); ARNOLD BAX (1883-1953); EDMUND RUBBRA (1901-86);
A one-page typed letter, signed, by John Betjeman, from The Architectural Review, 9 Queen Anne's Gate, Westminster, S.W.1, 2nd September 1932, to Gladys Marloe, requesting some photographs; a two- page autograph letter, signed, by Arnold Bax, from 155 Fellows Road, N.W.3, to Miss Marloe on her selection of 3 of his songs: "[They] make quite a good group and they could be transposed up but not more than a semi-tone I think. I don't like transposition for it throws the quality of the chords out of gear but up is better than down;" together with 9 other letters, including three by Edmund Rubbra and one by Egon Wellesz.
