LUCY LARCOM
Signature from the poet dated 1878, written while in Beverly, Massachusetts
Signature: "Lucy Larcom/Beverly, Mass./August. 1878", in blue ink, 3¾x2¼. Because the death of her father left the family in dire straits, Lucy Larcom (1824-1893) worked in the cotton mills of Lowell, Massachusetts from ages 11 to 21. While working long hours in the mill, Larcom would write poems about her experiences, soon amassing a collection of poems that exemplified the thought of the working class. She gained a national reputation, with poems published in the leading American magazines. She also edited one journal, Our Young Folks (1866-1873). Her autobiography, A New England Girlhood (1883), still remains in print. Toned. Stained across outer margins. Lightly soiled. Pencil and ink notes (unknown hand) on verso. Slightly creased. Corners lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
