The poet signs his name in blue ink on this 3¼x2 card, dated 1871!
Signature: "Bayard Taylor./1871.", 3¼x2 card. Bayard Taylor (1825-1878), a poet, journalist, travel writer, illustrator, translator and man of letters, attracted the attention of the "New York Tribune" after the publication of his romantic verse, Ximena...And Other Poems (1844). The "Tribune", which hired him as a correspondent, sent him to California in 1849 to cover the gold rush. Taylor regaled readers with his tales from the West, and he would later write and illustrate popular chronicles of his journeys at home and abroad. One of his best travel works was The Lands of the Saracen; or, Pictures of Palestine, Asia Minor, Sicily, and Spain (1855), and Taylor also wrote novels (including Beauty and the Beast, Etc.) and translated Goethe's Faust (1870-1871) as well as continuing to write poems, which include Poems of the Orient (1854) and the verse drama Prince Deukalion (1878). Also a non-resident Professor of German at Cornell University, Taylor was named U.S. Minister to Germany in 1878. He died in Berlin that year. Lightly foxed, touching signature. Paper remnants at lower left and upper right corners, tape stain at lower left. Mounting paper remnants and stains on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
