About this Item

Title in red and black. Frontispiece. Original green cloth; overall a very nice, uncut copy, t.e.g., with the inscription of J.H. Goodhue on fly-leaf. First edition of this series of short essays, tales and poems, mostly autobiographical in nature. Goodhue (1863-1935) received his M.D. from Rush Medical College. After starting his medical practice in California, he moved to Kauai as a government physician, ultimately becoming the medical superintendent of the Koloa Hospital as well as acting assistant surgeon of the U.S. Public Health and Marine Hospital service. It was while on Kauai that he began his work on leprosy, writing numerous papers on the subject and eventually being appointed by President Taft as a delegate to the International Congress on Leprosy in Norway. He started the Anti-Tuberculosis Association of Hawaii, was the first to advocate and draft a provision for women's suffrage for the Republican party, and was responsible for obtaining prohibition in Hawaii. He was known throughout America, Canada and England not only for his numerous articles on scientific and medical subjects, but also for his poetry which includes Verses from the valley; Beneath Hawaiian palms and stars; Under the silver moon and Songs of the Western sea. Goodhue was a close friend of Theodore Roosevelt, and compiled a book of tributes written about him. Bookseller Inventory # 12212
