Seven letters--handwritten and typed--dated in London and Cranleigh (Surrey) between Nov. 20, 1917 and June 24, 1933, from English writer and critic Frank Swinnerton to J.B. Pinker and other members of his literary agency, including Eric Pinker, Ralph Pinker, and a Mr. Wichen, discussing literary matters. In his letters of April 16 and 22, 1924, addressed to Mr. Wichen and J.B. Pinker & Son, respectively, Swinnerton discusses the Italian translation rights to his work "Nocturne". In his letters of June 22 an 24, 1933 to J. Ralph Pinker, Swinner requests a file copy of "The travellers' library", a compilation of travel reading by Somerset Maugham, which includes among other pieces, Swinnerton's "Nocturne", Arnold Bennett's "The old wives' tale" and E.C. Bentley's "Trent's last case". An earlier letter of Nov. 20, 1917 notes the title change of Wilson Macnair's "Glass houses" (originally "Green clay"), published by Chatto & Windus in 1918. In other letters, Swinnerton arranges a lunch meeting with Eric Pinker; agrees to write articles; and questions royalty payments on a $1.50 Doubleday edition of "Nocturne."
