Unusual item in the trade in this condition and state, having been signed by a member of The Bookfellows (Margaret Reynolds), and with her book-plate gracing the front paste-down. Sturdy, attractive, tightly bound, internally clean hardcover copy, with unbruised tips, neat and tidy paste-downs; not ex-library, with neither highlighting nor underlining. Hand-sewn, rough-cut pages, and with a lovely black-and-white photograph of the poet Edwin Markham (who lived another 18 years) laid in. Illustrated paper over boards, cloth-back, with gilt-wreath to front. Internally fine and crisp. Remains particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; 47 pp. First Edition, one of only 300 copies printed. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
