RR Autograph Auction Vachel Lindsay

American poet (1879–1931) whose employment of midwestern themes earned him the sobriquet ‘Prairie Troubadour.’ Vintage ink signature and inscription, “With good wishes to Vassar College from Nicholas Vachel Lindsay,” adding a sketch of the Egyptian deity Thoth, with a caption, “And here is a portrait of Thoth, patron of all scribes,” on an off-white 5.5 x 3.75 card. In fine condition, with a heavy horizontal crease between (but not affecting) the inscription and signature, and which could easily be matted out. RRAuction COA.
