Shop on Barnes & Noble


Best known today as author of The Autocrat of the Breakfast-Table, the physician, poet, and lecturer Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. (1809-1894) was one of Mark Twain’s favorite writers. This 1884 biography traces his early years and successful career in science and in writing. Brown is able to create a distinct narrative, as Holmes himself supplied her with fresh material and directed her in the making of the book.
