1892. Item #85383

PARKMAN, Francis. PHOTOGRAPH AND SIGNED MANUSCRIPT NOTE (1892), MATTED AND FRAMED. Jamaica Plain [MA], 22 Sept. [18]'92. Note written 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 (in two pieces) measures 6 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches/4 x 2 inches, and photo (cabinet card?) measures 5 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches. The note has shifted slightly in the mat; it mentions receipt of a Remington drawing and a correction to "The Jesuits." The photo is a vignetted bust portrait of Parkman, undated and unattributed. Very good condition - photo age toned but sharp. In a plain black wooden frame, 10 1/4 x 17 3/4 inches.

Price: $675.00
