Literary Landmarks of Boston (1903)
“A Visitor’s Guide to Points of Literary Interest in and About Boston.” Boston at one time was home to a remarkable group of literary men and women who would have given distinction to any civilized center. Also known as an early center of American publishing, It is fascinating to look through this 100+ year-old book and see who lived on a particular street, and when they lived there. Many of us are familiar with the great names like Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Cabot Lodge, Henry James and the like. What's interesting here is seeing where slightly lesser lights such as Kate Gannett Wells, Anna Fuller, Horatio Willis Dresser, Thomas Russell Sullivan and the like lived and what their contribution to literary Boston was. You'll see where Sarah Orne Jewett more or less "lived" with her friend and writer Mrs. Annie Fields. Compiled and written by Lindsay Swift. Pub. 1903 by Houghton, Mifflin & Co. and The Riverside Press (first edition). Wraps. Some spotting to front cover. Tiny bit of chipping at spine ends. 58 pages; indexed. 4.5 x 7.
