George Sterling

Seller's Description: "To The Hun" - Signed manuscript by George Sterling

George Sterling is remembered today primarily because he was one of the earliest to discover the young poet Clark Ashton Smith, and fostered his talent. Sterling though was one of the last and greatest poets of the Romantic tradition, and his "Wine of Wizardry" influenced Smith's more masterful creation "The Hashish-Eater".

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was also a George Sterling enthusiast.

This manuscript offered is signed in Sterling's beautiful flowing fountain pen.
Manuscripts of George Sterling do not often come on the market.
