1 ANNA M. GETHINGS 1874 ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPH AND MEMORY ALBUM FILLED WITH LOVE, ROMANCE AND YEARNING OF A YOUNG QUEBEC GIRL
Quebec, Canada 1874 Fair+ Autograph
On offer is the original 1874-75 autograph, poetry and memory album of a 13 year old Quebec girl "Anna Gethings / Quebec / '74" as stated on the inside front cover. In all there are about 27 pages with manuscript writing, most filled in completely. Most of the writing is romantic poetry: love, kissing, constancy, autumn, love, yearning and more kissing. The poetry is most likely hand copied from other books but collectors and historians of the era will nonetheless appreciate what was in the heart of this young French-Canadian girl of 1874. Here are some snippets: "The double Pain / My heart doth own a double fear, / A double pain, a double sigh; / The one when you are absent, dear / The other when you're by..." "An Autumn Memory / I love to dream again, when Autumn dresses / All the foliage in purple, brown, and gold / Of those merry laughing eyes and golden tresses, / That were mine, all mine, in happy days of old..." "When the kiss which thou / gavest so frankly to me / Was yet warm on the lips / where its birth had been fated..." "Love's Good Night / The hour is growing late, love, / The moon is out of sight; / Perhaps, my dear, I'd better go; / And so, good night, good night..." Most appear to be in Anna's hand though there are a few inscriptions to this girl, one such: "LOUIS BRUNEAU / Quebec / 1st July 1874 / Cakes & Wine". There are five pages that have color illustrations pasted on to them. The covers are worn through at the corners and spine ends; binding is shaky; the first page (with a pasted on picture and no writing) has a 2" closed tear, a stiff crease, and edge chipping; the hinges are split at several places but the pages are holding; there are a few stains and finger marks; the writing is very clear and fully legible throughout. Overall Fair+.
