John Burroughs. In Remembrance

Tall, stringbound chapbook printing the readings and remembrances from Burroughs' funeral services held at Riverby and at the graveside. 24 pages, printing Biblical passages; poetry by Emerson, Wordsworth, and others; a selection by Earl W.

Pietro's sculpture of Burroughs, entitled "The Seer." Ownership signature, in pencil, of Elspeth A. Edington. Minor wear and creasing to yapped edges; covers splitting at lower spine; very good in wrappers. Uncommon. [#032694] $250
