Autograph Letter, with Jokes
[ca. 1976]. A handwritten letter from Hoffman to the editor of Oui Magazine, bringing him up to speed on what has been and what will be submitted, wondering about how payment works, saying he's trying to work out a schedule to cover the inauguration [of President Carter], amid "all the security hassles," and mostly, submitting the caption of a sex-themed cartoon, which he emphatically states he does not want his name attached to (likely for the above-mentioned security reasons). Two other jokes by Hoffman are included here on a separate half-page of paper. The lot is unsigned, but the references within and the provenance all support Hoffman's authorship. Also included here is a letter to the same editor, Mark Zussman, from Hoffman's agent, from 1977, submitting Hoffman's completed piece on the inauguration (not present). The letter is fine, the half-page of jokes has some moderate staining and is very good. [#032292] SOLD
