London 1948 First Edition Thus Very Good+; 8vo, 2pp. Each, paper clip ghosts, folded, very good condition 
Three of the four letters are to Terrence Holliday, The Holliday Bookshop N. Y. (which sold English Lit. On same day of publication in England) on Horizon's letterhead. #1 T. L. S. " 3rd January, 1948 Dear Mr. Holliday, I don't know if you know already that our prize Competition for a short novel has been won by Mary MacCarthy of "Partisan Review". We are devoting the whole of the February number to it. THE OASIS is a sensitive and light-hearted comedy about American intellectuals in an imaginary Utopian settlement on the eve of the next war. I think it is the best thing she has written and though it isn't likely to be the best seller THE LOVED ONE was..." (Holliday has noted that he ordered 175 copies by cable) . #2 T. L. S. "18th March, 1948 Dear Mr. Holliday, I am so sorry for not answering your letter before, but I have been ill. THE LOVED ONE had an immense success here, and sold out in a week, with copies already appreciating in value and most of them destroyed by too many eager readers. About the manuscript of ENEMIES OF PROMISE I don't quite know what to say. I don't want to force my admirer to make any sacrifices or to pay a price which would cause admiration to turn to unconscious resentment. At present I need all the money I can get as I am harrassed by the Income Tax..." #3 A. L. S. April 16th "dear Mr. Holliday, What good news about the mss. I enclose the three volumes of E. Of P. Also photographs for the autobiographical part in volume III... #4 A. L. S. (nd ) "Dear Jane, I do possess the rarity: it comes in the catalogue...Auden...Spender.." Love, Cyril; 8 pages
