Autograph manuscript leaf

"THE AZURE VAULT BENDS REGULARLY DOWN UPON IT LIKE A BELLGLASS, IN CONCORDANCE WITH ITS VARIED COLORS & CURVES, AS IF IN EVER WAY BELONGING TO IT ALONE"

MUIR, John. Autograph manuscript leaf. No place, no date. One leaf, measuring 4 by 8-1/4 inches, writing in ink on recto, mounted to heavier sheet. $850.

Autograph manuscript written by naturalist John Muir, from an unidentified work.

"John Muir was for many years California's best known nature-writer" (Zamorano Eighty 56), and became the acknowledged leader of the forest conservation movement in the United States. The leaf reads in its entirety: "… bearings & make bee-lines through pathless wilds. The day seems to circle around it, & the azure dome [crossed out, replaced with `vault'] bends regularly down upon it like a bellglass, in concordance with its varied colors & curves, as if in every way belonging to it alone."

Fine condition.
