Author of Drums Along the Mohawk. Five items: two ALSs signed “Walter D. Edmonds,” the first dated July 27, 1964, in which Edmonds responds to an admirer with “cards & the only snapshot (I’ve not formal photographs) I have,” and the other, dated December 27, 1975, in which he responds to another admirer, providing photographs and referencing “Rome Haul, published about 1930,” which he would be glad to autograph if a copy could be attained; three TLSs, all signed “Walter D. Edmonds,” dated October 20, 1930, May 20, 1937, and October 30, 1968, the latter in which he writes, in part: “I am sorry you sound a bit discouraged about your teaching. Teaching retarded children must take endless patience, and I suppose there are long periods when it is impossible to measure progress”; and a glossy 2.25 x 3.25 snapshot of Edmonds relaxing in the woods, signed vertically in green ink. Intersecting folds, some mildly affecting the signatures, a rusty paperclip impression to one of the letters, and trimmed edges to the photo, otherwise fine condition.
