(BURROUGHS, John). BARRUS, Clara.
John Burroughs: Boy and Man
Garden City, Doubleday, Page, 1920. A biography of Burroughs, published the year before he died, and written by Barrus, who, for two decades, was Burroughs' friend, secretary, traveling companion, (presumed mistress), and later his biographer and literary executor. The rear top edge and two corners of the jacket have been reclaimed by nature (insects, apparently); the text has several marginal marks in pencil and modest foxing to the endpages; in all, a very good copy in a good, and very scarce, dust jacket.
