About this Item

A single leaf of manuscript in Julian Hawthorne's hand, written on lined, laid paper in black ink, on the recto only. At the head of the page, also in the author's hand, is written; 'Yellow-Cap. Chap. 3. Crossing the River. By Julian Hawthorne.' Just above Hawthorne's name, the leaf is further inscribed 'To Mary C. Day, with comp[limen]ts of.' Yellow-Cap was the titular tale in a collection of Fairy Stories for Children published in London in 1880. This leaf is seemingly from an early draft as it is very different from the published text. There's a two and a half inch closed tear along one fold, just touching a couple of letters, and some other minor chipping to the left edge and bottom right corner, not affecting any text. 19th century literary manuscript material is uncommon and, though the son never achieved anything like the reknown of the father, this piece has interest from both the family association and from the content [Children's Literature being a favored genre for both generations of Hawthornes].
