S. AUSTIN ALLIBONE
Signed autograph poem contrasting men and women, inscribed to a woman
Autograph Poem inscribed and signed: "For Mrs. M. E. Brooks/S. Austin Allibone", 1 page, 6¾x8¾. New York, 1881 April 19. Three-stanza poem on grid paper, beginning, "Woman, 'tis said, for reason quite unfit/Discerns the truth by an instructive wit;/If this be so, how fine must be the sense/Which can with plodding reason thus dispense./If man could travel in the sun's swift beam,/He'd soon abandon donkey, horse and steam." Samuel Austin Allibone (1816-1889) was a voracious reader and prolific American author. Among his works was a massive 3-volume Critical Dictionary of English Literature and British and American Authors, published between 1854 and 1871. From 1879 to 1888 he was librarian of the Lenox Library in New York City. Allibone also wrote and edited Protestant religious works. Horizontal and vertical fold creases - affecting signature at "S". Dark moisture stains at random over entire document. Left edge has 1" notch 2" from lower left corner.
