Wilkie Collins on his first published book

COLLINS, William Wilkie (1824-1889). Novelist.
Good early Autograph Letter Signed to David Roberts RA, 2 pages 8vo, 1 Devenport Street, Hyde Park Gardens, 16 September 1848. Enclosing circulars (not present) for Roberts to distribute among his friends, and discussing the progress of his work.
The letter evidently refers to Wilkie Collins's first book, the biography of his father, Memoirs of the Life of William Collins, Esq., R.A..
'... I now enclose a few of my circulars, taking advantage of your kind offer to make the Memoir known to some of your friends, ... The printing proceeds pretty expeditiously, and the book will be ready for publication, I hope, in October next. ...'
