(1879 - 1931) American poet who tramped throughout the South trading his poetry for room and board, influencing the revival of oral poetry as an art form. A most interesting and attractive item, a large poster measuring 34" x 27" b/w, showing an illustrated "Map of the Universe Issues in 1909", and his poem "The Queen of Bubbles", with text beneath reading: "All my true friends are petitioned to pin this poster on the parlour wall for fifty years never to be ashamed of it, and to explain in all its details to the world. 'The Queen of Bubbles' was first published in 1904, and the verse written to fit the first design...", with more fine content explaining the linking of the map and the poem. Signed at bottom right and numbered "115" in his hand above a line of fanciful hieroglyphics. Folds, a small central hole, else in very good condition.
