Excellent condition, minor creases at corners. In ink, "George William Curtis / January 20, 1873".

George William Curtis (1824-1892), American author, orator, and publicist, who influenced much of the literary, political, and social thought of his time. Curtis became a figure of national importance through magazine editing and lecturing. He was associate editor of Putnam's Monthly from 1853 to 1857, contributor of the 'Easy Chair' section of Harper's Monthly from 1853 to 1892, and editor of Harper's Weekly from 1863 until his death. In these positions, Curtis exerted a wide influence on the literary, political, and social thought of his time. His speech at Wesleyan University in 1856, “The Duty of the American Scholar to Politics and the Times,” was only one of his many notable public addresses; he gave his lecture “Political Infidelity” (written in 1864) more than 50 times in various parts of the country.
