Autographed letter signed, one page, 5 x 7 inch, London, 1.07.1875, in German, an unknown recipient (`Dear Professor`) - requesting that he send copies of his work on Troy, written and signed in black ink "H. Schliemann", attractively mounted (removable) for fine display with a photograph, shows Heinrich Schliemann in a half length portrait (altogether 11,75 x 8,25 inch), with intersecting letter folds - in fine to very fine condition. "London 1 July 1875 - Charing Cross Hotel 223 Hochgeehrter Herr Professor Sie werden das Expl meines Werks `Troy and its Remains` erhalten haben, welches ich Ihnen durch Hr John Murray zusenden ließ. Bitte mir dagegen noch 1 oder beßer 2 Expl Ihrer `Entdeckung Trojas in Hissarlik` hieher zu senden, denn ich habe Ihre früheres Expl an Hr Gladstone gegeben. Man hat mich hier empfangen als wenn ich die große Bibliothek von Alexandria unversehrt aufgegraben hätte. Eine kleine Episode dessen finden Sie z. B. in den `Times` von 26. Juni. Mit vorzüglicher Hochachtung - H. Schliemann" Translated: "Dear Professor You have probably received the copy of my work Troy and Its Remains, which I asked Mr. John Murray to send you. In return, please send one or better two more copies of your `Entdeckung Trojas is Hissarlik (Discovery of Troy in Hisarlik) to me at this address, for I gave your earlier copy to Mr. Gladstone. I was received here as if I had dug up the great library of Alexandria intact. You will find a little vignette about that in the June 26 issue of the Times. Very respectfully yours, - H. Schliemann"
