DONALD GRANT MITCHELL
The nineteenth-century author signs his name in black ink
Signature: "D.G. Mitchell" in black ink. 3x1¼ clipping affixed to 5x3 envelope. Donald Grant Mitchell (1822-1908), also known by his penname Ik Marvel, was the grandson of Revolutionary War-Era politician Stephen Mix Mitchell, who originally attended Yale College and studied law and even was a member of the Skull and Bones society, before ultimately deciding to study literature. After a brief stint as a U.S. consul in Venice, Italy (1853-1854), Mitchell wrote his most well-known work, Reveries of a Bachelor, or a Book of the Heart (1850) (which was one of Emily Dickinson's favorite books), which explores the dream-like lives Americans were living in at the time. His other works include Dream Life, a Fable of the Seasons (1851), My Farm of Edgewood (1863), About Old Story Tellers(1877), and American Lands and Letters(1897). Irregularly cut. Toned. Pencil notes in bottom margin. Ink and pencil notes on envelope in unknown hand. Otherwise, fine condition.
