The author pens her signature on this 3x1½ sheet, framed to an overall zise of 21x17¼!
Signature: "L.M. Alcott.", 3x1½. The early education of author Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was provided by her father, Amos Bronson Alcott, and his friends, including Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne. After teaching school until 1862, she volunteered as a nurse in Washington during the Civil War. Louisa contracted typhoid pneumonia that was treated with a dangerous mercury compound that destroyed her nervous system, making her ill for the rest of her life. She wrote of her war experiences in Hospital Sketches (1963). Four years later, Louisa began the Little Women (1868-1869) series, in which the Alcott sisters were portrayed as the March family. Little Men (1871) and Eight Cousins (1874) became part of that set, as did Lulu's Library (1874). She published the last of the March family series, Jo's Boys, in 1886. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 21x17¼.
