[JOHN TOWNSEND TROWBRIDGE]
An envelope hand addressed by Trowbridge from Arlington, Massachusetts
Autograph envelope unsigned, 5½x3. Addressed to Mr. Henry G. Allen of Grand Rapids. Author John Townsend Trowbridge (1827-1916), a friend of Mark Twain and Walt Whitman, bought a house in Arlington, Massachusetts in 1867 and lived in it until his death. He also spent much time in Kennebunkport, Maine, where he named the local landmarks Spouting Rock and Blowing Cave. Trowbridge wrote poetry, and both juvenile and adult novels, some of the latter, like The Old Battle-Ground (1859) bearing a strong anti-slavery theme. His 1867 poem, "Darius Green and His Flying Machine," confidently predicted manned flight. Some of his books were written under the pen name Paul Creyton. Thinned on top right corner. Ink stamps. Toned in the shape of a bow on top margin. Corners slightly worn and creased. Adhesive residue on corners on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
