Catalogue Note

NUMBER 7 OF 25 OF THE MANUSCRIPT SET OF THE AUTOGRAPH EDITION. Signed by the author and by the editor, Thomas R. Lounsbury, at the limitation of volume I.  

20 single-sided manuscript leaves, including a draft of an article originally published in The Sunday School Times titled "About Literature and Things."  The article begins: "The word 'practical' is elastic, and is variously understood.  Commonly, a man is said to be practical who looks out keenly for his own interests...".  The article draft is signed by the author on the final leaf.  Additionally, there is an apparently unpublished essay titled "In June". The letter in volume one is dated "Hartford Jan 19 '71," and the manuscript page taken from In the Levant, with corrections by the author in purple ink.  Several illustrations signed by the artists.
