FROM THE PROVENCAL OF BERNARI RASCAS All things that are on earth shall wholly pass away, Except the love of God, which shall live and last for aye. The forms of men shall be as they had never been; The blasted groves shall lose their fresh and tender green; The birds of the thicket shall end their pleasant song, And the nigthingale shall cease to chant the evening long. The kine of the pasture shall feel the dart that kills, And all the fair white flocks shall perish from the hills. The goat and antlered stag, the wolf and the fox, The wild boar of the wood, and the chamois of the rocks, And the strong and fearless bear, in the trodden dust shall lie, And the dolphin of the sea, and the mighty whale, shall die. And realms shall be dissolved, and empires be no more, And they shall bow to death, who ruled from shore to shore; And the great globe itself, (so the holy writings tell,) With the rolling firmament, where the starry armies dwell, Shall melt with fervent heat--they shall all pass away, Except the love of God, which shall live and last for aye. Contents Fine; front cover and first two blank pages neatly detached, leather on spine deteriorated. Overall Very Good .

BRYANT, William Cullen
Autograph Manuscript (Am) with Signed Card
3 May 1878. Manuscript. Handwritten conclusion of Bryant's most famous poem and one of the best-known poems of the 19th century--"Thanatopsis"--on a 4-7/8" x 3-3/4" sheet of paper laid down on a slightly larger album size sheet; together with a small calling card SIGNED "William Cullen Bryant" and dated "May 3d 1878. With an engraved portrait of Bryant. There are a few changes in punctuation from the published version. Any MANUSCRIPT excerpt of this poem, especially such a substantial one as this, is quite rare. So live that when thy summons comes to join The innumerable caravan which moves To that mysterious realm where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of Death, Thou go not, like the quarry slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him and lies down to pleasant dreams. Near Fine. Scarce and desirable Thanatopsis," written when Bryant was 15 years old and first published in THE NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW in September 1817, became Bryant's most celebrated poem and is often acknowledged as "the first great American poem." Although the poem remained popular throughout Bryant's life, autograph fair copies are surprisingly rare with only two examples offered at auction in the past 50 years, the last being at Christie's in 1993.
