Size : Image 4 By 6 Inches Overall 8 By 10 Inches. Condition: This very scarce image has light edge wear. Light soiling and rubbing to photograph and mounting board. ; COMMENTS: A Print of James Russell Lowell, drawn by F. E. Wright, photographed by Clark Photographers and sold as one in a series of six. The reverse of the mounting board reads: "Six American Poets: 1. Holmes 2. Bryant 3. Whittier 4. Longfellow 5. Emerson 6. Lowell. No. 6 -Copyrighted by F. E. Wright, 1875- Clark, Photographer" The bottom of the mounting board at the lower edge reads written in pencil- "From a Crayon by" and then written in ink, at what appears to be an earlier date "F. E. Wright Nov 18th 1875" I don't know if it is signed by Wright as I have nothing to compare the signature to, or if someone has just written in his name. "James Russell Lowell (February 22, 1819 – August 12, 1891) was an American Romantic poet, critic, editor, and diplomat. He is associated with the Fireside Poets, a group of New England writers who were among the first American poets who rivaled the popularity of British poets. These poets usually used conventional forms and meters in their poetry, making them suitable for families entertaining at their fireside."; F.e. Wright . Bookseller Inventory # 047587

Item Description: Written to the daughter of the First President of JohnsHopkins UniversityJames Russell Lowell was an American Romantic poet, as wellas a critic, editor and even American diplomat, best knownfor his association with the ÒFireside Poets.Ó These were agroup of New England poets whose popularity made themthe first American poets to rival the popularity of British poetsof their day. The Fireside Poets are generally accepted toconsist of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, William Cullen Bryant,James Russell Lowell, John Greenleaf Whittier, and OliverWendell Holmes, Sr. These poets earned their nicknamethrough their strict adherence to poetic convention such asmeter and rhyme scheme which made their works particularlyeasy to memorize and recite. This made them perfect forentertaining families around the fire. Lowell and Longfellowwere actually lifelong friends.Lowell went to Harvard College and also earned a degreefrom Harvard Law School. He returned to teach literaturethere in 1856, a position he held for 20 years. He also went onto serve as U.S. Ambassador to Spain and also to England andeventually died on the same estate where he was born. He believedthat the poet served an important role in society - thatof both critic and prophet. Lowell used his poetry for reform,most notably for the abolitionist movement, in which he andhis first wife Maria White were avid believers. However, ashe got older and after the death of Maria, his activity with themovement seemed to wane.In February of 1877 Lowell traveled to Baltimore where hegave a series of 20 lectures on literature of the Romance languagesat Johns Hopkins University. The UniversityÕs 10thanniversarywas held during his stay there and he was therecipient of much hospitality, engratiating himself in thesociety and making himself a most welcome guest. Later inlife Lowell referred to his time at Hopkins as one of the mostHandwritten sonnet to Gilman (John Hopkins14pleasant months of his life. The Mr. Child he refers to in theletter was his companion and friend during his teaching daysat Harvard, Professor Francis J. Child, who had been namedHarvardÕs first English Professor in 1876.As an expression of his fondness for his time in Baltimore,Lowell penned a sonnet to a young daughter of the first Presidentof Johns Hopkins University, Daniel Coit Gilman, in responseto flowers she had sent him. He enclosed it with thisAutograph Letter Signed from his home in Elmwood, Cambridge,Mass., 7 April, 1877. This was just 4 months before heleft for Spain as Ambassador. ÒDear Miss Alice, I shall assumefor my own convenience that there just fourteen roses in the lovelysheaf I found in my room when I came in for shelter from the ill humorof that February day, so unlike the temperature both outwardand inward to which Baltimore had accustomed us. I repay them infourteen verses and I wish it were as easy to match the sweetness ofyour sonnet as its numbers. However, I promised you that I wouldsend it and I have not forgotten, but have had so many things to dothat I had delayed paying my debt till you had half forgotten yourdebtor. The two quatrains with which my sonnet gets well underwaywere written on the spot with your roses comforting two of mybenumbed senses. Luckily I wrote them on the back of an invitationwhich certifies to the date Ð ÒSaturday, 24th febyÓ. The concludingtriplets I had partly written down when I was interrupted , andI finished them this morning. I wish it was better, but at least thegratitude will last if not the sonnet. I suppose by this time youspeak Latin as readily as Sir Hudibras to whom it , Òwas no moredifficult than to a blackbird tis to whistle,Ó and that you read yourNew Testament in the original for ease in understanding. Praygive my kindest remembrances to your father and aunts, who maybe sure of them so long as I last, and donÕt leave out Lizzie. If Mr.Child knew of my writing, he would send his love. Indeed he wouldhave sent it himself for this but that he has so occupied . H. Bookseller Inventory # 9644
