Poems, Anne Whitney inscribed to H.B. and Calvin Stowe

Poems by Anne Whitney

Appleton, New York, 1859. Withdrawn from Bowdoin College library with usual marks. Light shelfwear, sunning to edges of boards. Inscribed but not signed by Whitney "The author to her friends Mr. and Mrs. Stowe, July 1861". Whitney was a prominent sculptor and abolitionist who, amongst many other commissions, made a bust of Harriet Beecher Stowe, a good friend. Calvin Stowe taught Biblical Studies at Bowdoin College, his alma mater, no doubt how this book became part of their collection.
