About this Item

358 pp., illustrated; 8vo, mustard brown pictorial cloth with cover design in gilt, brown, and green. With autograph poem and note from the author mounted to front blank leaves: "To Charlie Boy. In honour of his Advent Day. / Love came to me and made my lone heart glad: / Love stayed with me and I no more was sad. / Love brought his fellow, Grief, an other day; Grief tarries still for Love has gone away. / But Grief will go when Love shall come again / E'en as the Summer sunshine follows rain. / From the heart of his devoted Dad / (signed) Charles Warren Stoddard. Monterey, 19 - Nov. - 1907." Charles Warren Stoddard (1843-1909) was a writer, traveler, educator, and editor. Together with Bret Harte and Ina Coolbirth, Stoddard edited and published the Overland Monthly magazine during its first incarnation. Stoddard was part of the "Crowd" an informal group of mostly California writers and artists that frequented Carmel and included Jack London, George Sterling, Joaquin Miller, Ambrose Bierce, Mary Austin, Nora May French, etc. Stoddard lived in nearby Monterey. The "Charlie Boy" of the inscription is likely Stoddard's intimate friend Charles Phillips (1880-1933), a fellow Catholic and editor of the San Francisco "Monitor" Catholic newspaper. Pinned to the front free endpaper are 8 leaves of manuscript in pencil containing a partly autobiographical sketch of Stoddard copied by a Mr. R. E. White from the March 30, 1878 San Francisco "Argonaut." Moderate wear to covers, but clean and presentable. Bookseller Inventory # 21229
