About this Item

This prominent women's rights advocate, journalist, abolitionist and temperance movement advocate was one of the leading lights in 19th century reforms along with such figures as Julia Ward Howe and Lucy Stone. Bold and nice "Mrs. Mary A. Livermore / Boston" in brown ink on a heavy stock 3¼" X 1 3/4" card, n.y. Very good. Small glue stain at lower right (not affecting signature); mounting traces on verso. Undated, but likely of 1870s or '80s vintage. Accompanied by a superb heavy stock 5¼" X 8" steel-engraved head-and-shoulders portrait of an older Livermore (published by A.D. Worthington & Co., Hartford, CT) -- likely the frontispiece to her 1889 memoir, "My Story of the War: A Woman's Narrative of Four Years Personal Experience as Nurse in the Union Army and in Relief Work at Home in Hospitals Camps and at the Front During the War of the Rebellion." A handsome pair. Bookseller Inventory # 40833
