F. MARION CRAWFORD
Album leaf signed and dated by author F. Marion Crawford in Manhattan, New York City in 1893
Signature: "F. Marion Crawford./Manhattan/Jan. 24. 1893.". 4¾x3 album leaf with rounded right edge. You probably couldn't accuse American novelist Crawford (1854-1909, born Francis Marion Crawford in Bagni de Lucca, Grand Duchy of Tuscany, Italy) of excessive realism in his writing, and he'd probably thank you for it. His writing was known for its vivid characterizations and settings, if not its depth, and drew heavily on his travels to Italy and India. Probably his best known works are Saracinesca (1887), Sant' Illario (1889) and Don Orsino (1892), about social and economic change and how it affects an Italian family. Crawford was also known for his exotic stories, such as his first novel Mr. Isaacs (1882), set in India, and the frequently anthologized horror stories The Upper Berth (1886), The Screaming Skull (1908) and the vampire story For the Blood is the Life (1911). Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Lightly discolored along edges. Otherwise in fine condition.
