Signature: "Thomas Bailey Aldrich/1891", 3¾x2¼ card. Aldrich (1836-1907, born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire) was an American writer, poet and editor.

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). Lightly toned. Card is lightened and creased near top edge from mounting. Adhesive remnants on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
