Lot Information

First time I have had this book in 40 years and offering over 70,000 items over that period. Henry Brougham Farnie (8 April 1836 ? 21 September 1889) often called H. B. Farnie Third Edition. With an autograph letter, signed by H.B. Farnie, on Strand Theatre, W.C. stationary, dated June 6, 188 (7 x 4 inches). The letter is 7 lines long, and in it he asks for some sheet music No. 6, Legend of the Kadskills, signed Faithfully, H.B. Farnie. A very rare manuscript item from Henry Brougham Farnie (1836-1889), a native of Burntisland. Farnie was a journalist who was educated at St. Andrews, where he no doubt honed his skills at the game. He published the first edition of this book in 1857 under the pseudonym 'A Keen Hand'.
