Price: $399.95

Book Condition: Fair


A most unique 29 page volume of poetry including such titles as: Old Folks Alone; The Nomad (which appears beneath the book's only illustration, that of a middle aged couple); The Isle of Dreams; The Immigrant's Return; Satisfied; The Prospector; and many others. Author's signature inside front cover. Several handwritten corrections to contents may be those of the author. Several poems have different poems pasted on top of them. Thus, this volume may in fact be a draft copy. Pasted inside the back cover is a most amusing work entitled "A Close Call" - an Australian Idyl, which describes the Widow McPhee's near-seduction of the writer whilst he was camped out beneath a 'monster blue-gum tree' in sunny New South Wales. Wholesale peeling to inside of front cover suggests a pasted down poem has been removed. We note passing references to the Yukon, prospecting, and the lanes of Devon. Undated - circa 1950?. Very well worn but holding together.
