The control of the serial rights in MARTIN EDEN is vested in me. However, The Macmillan Company has already published the book, so it will have some say-so in the matter. Let me suggest that you address yourself directly to Mr. George P. Brett, President of The Macmillan Company...Any arrangement you may come to, which is satisfactory to him, will be satisfactory to me...". Martin Eden is the story of a young struggling author who obsesses about education and fortune and, using the force of sheer ambition, gains fame as a writer. It was published by Macmillan in Sept. 1909. Very good condition.
