WILLIAM T. "OLIVER OPTIC" ADAMS
Oliver Optic advised someone to "Aim High" with this card, signed with his pen name "Oliver Optic" and his real name
Autograph quotation signed: "'Aim high."/William T Adams/"Oliver Optic.". 3x1¾. William T. "Oliver Optic" Adams (1822-1897) taught in Boston public schools (1845-1865). Under the pseudonym Oliver Optic, he wrote 126 books, mostly series for boys. His books contained more adventure than most of what was being written for young people then and so were controversial. Some libraries banned them as too "sensational," but young readers loved them. In 1871, no other author was borrowed so frequently from the Boston Public Library. He engaged in a literary quarrel with Louisa May Alcott, who chided readers of "optical delusions." Adams wrote scathing rebuttals. Lightly toned. Discolored from album mountings in corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
