About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Manuscript Collection of Poetry

Publisher: America

Publication Date: 1870

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Good+


Full morocco, lettering stamped in gilt and decoration in blind on boards and spine; approx. 5.25 by 8 inches; approx. pp. 75, the first half of which contains (what seems to be) original poems and prose (evoking sermons), in tidy script. Scuffing along spine and edges of boards; binding shaken, a few leaves starting or detached and laid-in; child's faint scribbles in pencil here and there. A few clues place it in Pittston, Pennsylvania, in 1871, and the majority are penned by B. E. Shields. A blank page toward the rear gives a list of names, "Susie Harrison, Bessie Harrison, Harrie Weathersby, Willie Weathersby, Frank O' Brien, John O' Brien," written in a child's hand.
