Autographed Poem
na 1879 - Autographed, handwritten poem by Lydia Maria Child, 1879. Excellent condition. 3¿ X 4 1/4¿. No tears or creases. Paper is in good condition and ink is still crisp and clear. Child was one of the most significant reformers of the nineteenth century U.S., writing and advocating for a number of causes, principally abolitionism, women¿s rights, and Native American rights. Born in 1802, she reached the height of her influence in the 1830s-50s. She died one year after signing this poem. Provenance of this document can be traced back to the early 1900s, when it was in the ownership of the inventor Harold Tifft. Tifft wrote copious notes in pencil on the back of the document (please see image) before selling it to a rare book dealer in the mid-1900s. A receipt of that dealer¿s sale of the poem to the family from whom I purchased it will be included with this sale. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
