About this Item

8vo. Grey cloth with gilt lettering, pictorial price-clipped dust jacket. ix, 363pp. Frontispiece, decorative endpapers. Near fine/very good. Jacket slightly edgeworn and a tad rubbed. Tight, handsome first edition of this biography of the military and literary figure (1823-1911). Civil War buffs know him as colonel of the first Union negro army regiment, and in this context Robert W. Johannsen describes this as "An effective study of Higginson's life; the author places strong emphasis on Higginson's friendship with Emily Dickinson." Others know Higginson as writer, abolitionist and mainly the friend and editor of Dickinson. A lovely copy. NEVINS II, 99. Bookseller Inventory # 35452
