The poet signs "Yours" on a 3¼x2¼ card
Signature: "Yours/Joaquin Miller/Washington D.C."", 3¼x2¼ card. Born Cincinnatus Miller, this poet of the American West changed his name to Joaquin to honor an early California outlaw with a Robin Hood-type reputation. Miller (1837-1913) as a child traveled by wagon train with his parents from Indiana to Oregon. He led an adventurous life, joining both the California and later Alaska gold rushes and suffering serious wounds in a battle with the Modoc Indians. (He was also for a time a school teacher and an elected judge.) Miller journeyed to London in 1870, where his first two volumes of poetry were published: Song of the Sierras and Life Among the Modocs. After gaining popularity in Europe as "the poet of the Sierras", he returned to America and built a home in Oakland California, overlooking San Francisco Bay. Four pinhead-sized spots in blank areas. Mounting adhesive remnants on verso (no show-through). Fine condition.
