EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE AND HIGHLY DESIRABLE SIGNED AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION FROM LOUISA MAY ALCOTT’S POEM:   “TRANSFIGURATION”

ALCOTT, Louisa May (1832-88). American author, suffragist, reformer and selfless nurse during the Civil War.  She achieved fame with Little Women. Exceedingly scarce, Autograph Quotation Signed: “L.M. Alcott.” One page, oblong 12mo. No place, No date. Alcott writes:

 

“The noble woman! Never more a queen /

Than in the laying down /

of scepter & of crown /

 To win a greater kingdom yet unseen

L.M. Alcott.”

The above quotation is the penultimate stanza of Alcott’s “Transfiguration”.  Autograph quotations, from her best known writings rarely appear in the market place.  A choice opportunity!  Mounted below a vintage cabinet photograph of Alcott, in a old black, wooden frame.
