EDWARD EGGLESTON The author and historian penned this quotation at his home the Owl's Nest in Lake George, New York Autograph Quotation Signed "Truth is not always lovely, Yet/truth is always to be loved,/Edw.Eggleston/The Owl's Nest, Lake George 20 April 1882" in purple ink. 4 ½ x 3 with rounded corners, mounted to a 4¾x3½ card. The Owl's Nest was Eggleston's summer and, eventually, his year-round home in Lake George, New York. It was declared a National Historical Landmark in 1971. Indiana-born Eggleston (1837-1902) held many jobs during his life - itinerant preacher, magazine editor, grammar school teacher and even laborer in Minnesota - but is know today primarily as an author and historian. His books and stories, which were popular in his day, are valued today more for their realism than their literary worth. Eggleston's works include The Hoosier Schoolmaster (1871), loosely based on the experiences of his brother and fellow teacher George Cary Eggleston, and The Circuit Rider: A Tale of the Heroic Age (1874), based on his own experiences as a traveling Methodist preacher. He turned to writing about history after a 1879 trip to Europe. Eggleston's most significant works in that subject include Beginners of a Nation (1896) and Transit of Civilization from England to America (1900). Lightly toned, foxed and rippled. Card has irregular top and bottom edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
