JOSIAH GILBERT HOLLAND
The editor of Scribner's Monthly pens a short note to his, "unknown friend."
Autograph note signed:" I am,/My unknown friend/yours very truly/J.G. Holland", 3½x2 card. Josiah Gilbert Holland (1819-1881) is the author of Arthur Bonnicastle, The Story of Sevenoaks and Nicholas Mintum, among many others. From its founding in 1869 to the end of his life, Holland partnered with Charles Scribner as the editor of the famous Scribner's Monthly. The beginning of Holland's career was troubled with business misadventures, unsuccessfully running his own periodical and medical practice before finding employment as a teacher. Yet once he gave up his medical practice and returned to West Massachusetts, his luck changed for him. The 1870's was a productive decade for Holland, who published his most famous novels during that time, including The Mistress and the Manse (1874). His last novel, The Puritan's Guest (1881) was published the year he died. Toned, lightly soiled. Adhesive residue at corners and on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
