    Description

    Harriet Beecher Stowe Autograph Note Signed "Harriet Beecher Stowe", one page, 5.25" x 4", December 20, 1889. The note reads, " What a moment life seems in the presence of the noble dead. What a momentary thing is art, in all it's beauty! Page 217". Harriet Beecher Stowe, reform-minded novelist, is best remembered for penning Uncle Tom's Cabin, a fictional indictment of slavery that further polarized an already antagonistic North and South. The bit of verse offered here is likely quoted from one of Stowe's works as she does not attribute it to anyone, yet assigns it a page number. One small split and overall light browning. Very Good condition. Framed to 14.0" x 11.75" along with an engraved portrait of Stowe. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
