THOMAS BAILEY ALDRICH
Signed the year he wrote An Old Town by the Sea about his home town, Portsmouth, New Hampshire
Signature: "Thomas Bailey Aldrich/Dec. 1883", 6½x6. Thomas Bailey Aldrich (1836-1907, born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire) was an American writer, poet and editor. He left home at the death of his father in 1849, at the age of 13, to work as a clerk in his uncle's New York business. Once in New York, he contributed to a number of newspapers and magazines. After publishing his first book of poems The Bells in 1855, Aldrich became junior literary critic for the New York Evening Mirror and then subeditor of Home Journal before editing The Atlantic Monthly from 1881 to 1890. His books of poems include Cloth of Gold (1874), Flower and Thorn (1877), Mercedes and Later Lyrics (1877) and Windham Towers (1890). Aldrich also wrote several novels, but is best known for this short story collection Marjorie Dew and Other People (1873) and his semi-autobiographical The Story of a Bad Boy (1870). The year he signed this album leaf, he published an historical memoir and travel guide to his home town of Portsmouth, An Old Town by the Sea. Lightly toned. Fine condition.
