About this Item: Alfred Bartlett N.D., Boston. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. First Edition. First Printing. Publisher's full flexible blue paper over card wraps, black lettering on cover. When Williston Fish, an attorney in Chicago, Ill., sat down in 1897 to draft a will for one Charles Lounsbury, what Fish produced as a testament proved to be sheer prose poetry. In its time, Lounsbury's will was printed and reprinted around the world. To generations of attorneys, it became a classic.The Lounsbury will was no legal will at all. It was, in fact, a literary article. There was only an attorney-businessman, and part-time author, in Chicago named Williston Fish who created the fictional will as a literary effort. Williston Fish was born on January 15, 1858, in Berlin Heights, Ohio. Self-taught in Greek and Latin, he briefly attended Oberlin College, then won appointment in 1877 to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. In 1881, the year of his graduation, he married, and subsequently had 3 children. He remained in the Army for 6 years, studying law on the side. After resigning from the Army, he was admitted to the Illinois Bar in 1887, then chose to enter into a business career. But his heart was always in writing, and he published at least 3 books and 500 articles, stories, poems for periodicals.In 1897, he hit upon the idea of a perfect will and upon a wealthy, nonexistent client namedCharles Lounsbury. As Fish recalled it later: "The name, Charles Lounsbury, of the divisor in the will, is a name in my family of three generations ago--back in York State where the real owner of it was a big, strong, all-around good kind of a man. So I took the name of Charles Lounsbury to add strength and goodwill to my story." The will that Williston Fish had written found its way into print for the 1st time the year after it was created. It appeared in Harper's Weekly on September 3, 1898. It was picked up and reprinted widely. But in recent years, it has been forgotten. The volume is in virtually perfect, pristine condition, unmarked, tight, square and clean. FINE. 16mo 6" - 7" tall. 7 pp. Seller Inventory # 25463
