About this Item

American author of girls tales and poems whose first book was published in 1859 ("Mother Goose for Grown Folks") and last book in 1900 ("The Integreity of Christian Science"). AQS, 1p, 7" X 9", n.p., n.y. Very good. Faint vertical show-through along leftmost 1" from mounting traces on verso, with " paper loss near upper left corner (not affecting text). On lined paper (running vertically, strangely), Whitney boldly pens her three-stanza poem "A Violet," first published in her 1872 poetry collection "Pansies," and signs in full at the conclusion. Opens with "God does not send us strange flowers every year. / When the spring winds blow o'er the pleasant places, / The same dear things lift up the same fair faces. / The violet is here." An unusually lengthy example -- Whitney usually penned short sentiments only or single verse lines for admirers, not full poems. Bookseller Inventory # 41550
