EDWARD EGGLESTON
Autograph from the author and historian in ink
Signature:"Autograph of/Edw.Eggleson.". 4x2¼ signature affixed to a 7½x4¾ album leaf. 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. Ink transference touches signature. Show-through from adhesive, mounting remnants and paper loss on verso (does not touch signature). Album leaf is lightly creased and rippled and was neatly torn from binding at right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
