JOHN TOWNSEND TROWBRIDGE
The author writes a quote from his poem "My Brother Ben", dating it in January of 1886
Autograph quotation signed: "J. T. Trowbridge", in blue ink, 4¼x3½. In full: "From "My Brother Ben": - For gold is gloss, And possessions are doves, And gain is all loss, Without love. [signature] Jan 1886". 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. Toned. Stained on top and bottom edges. Corners slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
