(GREY, Zane). BAGNARD, Gus.
Autograph Letter Signed
1936. A letter from Gus Bagnard to his brother Lyle and his wife, from Bermagui, Australia, written while traveling with Zane Grey. Brothers Gus and Lyle Bagnard were long-time friends of Grey, and they also worked as Grey's photographers and cameramen. This letter from Gus to his brother (after commenting on the physiques and personalities of various Australians and tourists) speaks of "Z.G.'s" fishing and work schedule, and describes how Grey's demeanor is more outgoing there than when he is in Oregon. Cameo appearances in the letter by Emil Morehardt and the actress Lillian Pertka. An interesting glimpse of Grey's fame and celebrity internationally, and a stark contrast to its expression at home in the U.S. A 6-page letter, written on two sides of two 6 1/2" x 10 1/4" pages. Folded for mailing; very good. Signed, "Lots of love, Gus." [#034873] $250
