Autograph Manuscript Signed.
This American author and poet penned popular verse collections such as "The Burning of Schenectady, and Other Poems" (1842), "Drawings and Tintings" (1844) and "Fugitive Poems" (1846) as well as prose about the woodland life in early America such as "Woods and Waters" (1860), "The Indian Pass" (1969), "Lake and Mountain" (1870) and "Eagle Pine" (1871); of his verse, Edgar Allan Poe wrote, "Mr. Street has fine taste, and a keen sense of the beautiful. He writes carefully, elaborately, and correctly" -- though he also found him imitative. AMS, 2pp (separate leaves), 7 3/4" X 11¼", n.p., n.y. Very good. Bit of mild edgewear, but overall bold and quite handsome. Complete fair copy of Street's well-known seven stanza poem "The Flag of the Eagle," which begins: "The Flag of the Eagle will never be furled, / Though battle-skies scowl with the wrath of a world! / Like the have hid its emblem, the milder be cast: / The broader its storm-scorning folds will be cast: / Mighty Flag of the Eagle!" And ending: "Oh yes, the signs brighten; the nemesis blow / His own sound shall plant in the heart of the foe / Down down shall he fall to his own battle-spear / That will turn to a staff with wild rapture to rear / Our land's Flag of the Eagle!" Boldly signed below the title at top of the first page. An unusually long and exceptionally attractive manuscript copy. As Poe describes Street's handwriting, "It is a very pretty chirography, graceful, legible, and neat. By most persons it would be called beautiful.". N° de ref. de la librería 31413
