Seller ID 1003
Three letters and one postcard from Frank Torbett — friend and collaborator on the tale, A THUNDER OF TRUMPETS with Robert E. Howard. The letters are all dated 1943 and are in response to requests from F.(Franklin) Lee Baldwin, noted fan and one of the contributing editors to fan/magazine, THE ACOLYTE. Baldwin was seeking information about REH's background —"I will be glad to give you any information I can in regard to Robert E. Howard. For some years he and I were intimate friends. His family and mine were good friends . . . He was intellectual and possessed an outstanding personality . . . He was very loyal to his friends and devoted to his parents . . . He spent most of his time writing and studying . . . Did not mix with people much. Had very few intimate friends." Nice to have some interesting insights related from his own era. The letters are all signed in black fountain pen and in excellent condition.
