LOWELL, D. R. PHOTOGRAPH AND SIGNED MANUSCRIPT NOTE FRAGMENT, MATTED AND FRAMED. [n.p., n.d.] Manuscript sample from a note from Lowell to William Dana ORCUTT, author of (among other works) FROM MY LIBRARY WALLS: A KALEIDOSCOPE OF MEMORIES. The aforementioned book is based on articles he wrote for The Christian Science Monitor about literary figures and their writings; this is one of Orcutt's mementos, literally from his library wall. Note fragment measures 2 x 3 7/8 inches; photograph 5 x 3 7/8 inches. Photo resembles a cabinetcard, sepia toned, possibly dating from 1900 - the first decade of the 20th century (although the whiskers might be considered old-fashioned for that period). The note culminates in Lowell's signature, and the fragment mentions a gift of some unnamed volumes. Faint pale spotting to edges of image in photograph, else fine. In a plain black wooden frame, 12 7/8 x 8 1/2 inches.
