About This Item

[London], N.p., [ca 1924]
The letter was sent to 'clients' in the Soviet Union. The letter to customers offering agency services: supply of books and periodicals (in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian), shipping of editions before their official release, inform about book market. Letter was signed by William Foyle. List of thematic catalogs published below.
There is no date on the list, but the store was located at this address from 1920 to 1929. In the letter mentioned 'stability of Russian exchange rate'. The rouble rate to the dollar has totally stabilized in 1924. Foyles had an account with Moscow Narodny Bank (Hazlit House, Southampton Buildings, Holborn, London). It was operated in London since 1915 and became British legal entity as an independent bank in 1919. Bank was added into Soviet banking system after British government recognition of Soviet Union and anglo-soviet trade agreement was signed in 1924. So this advertising could not be sent earlier than 1924.
Most likely, this advertising was successful. Daughter of Gilbert Foyle, Christina arrived in the USSR in 1932 to demand debts
