Born on his family's farm in Roxbury, New York on April 3, 1837, Burroughs, who died on a train returning from California (March 29, 1921), would be buried there on April 3, 1921, on what would have been his 84th birthday. American naturalist John Burroughs (1837-1921) was a prolific nature writer, penning over 243 essays on his association with birds, resulting in his nickname, "John o' Birds". A friend of Walt Whitman, Burroughs also wrote Notes on Walt Whitman as Poet and Person (1867), the first Whitman biography. In all, he penned 441 essays that were collected in 23 volumes. These works include Birds and Poets (1877), Literary Values (1902), Ways of Nature (1905) and Camping and Tramping with Roosevelt (1907). Shaded at perimeter, touching the "hs" of Burroughs, 2 letters of writing and the date. Mounting remnants at upper and lower blank corners. Overall, fine condition.
