About this Item

The younger brother of poet William Cullen Bryant was an Illinois poet, farmer, politician and newspaper editor; his books of verse include "Poems Written from Youth to Old Age, 1824-1884" (1885) and "The Life and Poems of John Howard Bryant" (1894). AQS, 1p, 5" X 8", Princeton, Illinois, 1895 May 20. Very good. Faint bit of age toning. Stanza from a poem, handsomely penned in brown ink in old age: "There is no breath of common air, / No ray of light from Star or Sun, / No Shade of beauty anywhere; / But whispers of the Almighty One," nicely signed in full. Bryant does not identify it, but this is the penultimate stanza from his poem "The Streams of Life," which appears on pages 227-28 of the "Life and Poems" volume published the year before he penned this excerpt. From the collection of University of Chicago geology professor Albert Johannsen (1871-1962), author of "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (1950), the definitive reference work on the subject. Johannsen's original 8½" X 11" file folder, bearing his printed "Collection of Albert Johannsen" label (partly filled in by Johannsen), accompanies this item. Bookseller Inventory # 27014
