Book Description Toronto The Ryerson Press (1923), 1923. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. FIRST EDITION. INSCRIBED BY HALE TO "TESS" as follows: "To Tess/ This little picture/ of a strange and fadeless/ figure in the life or our/ Country, yours and mine,/ from/ Katherine Hale./ Christmas 1924." 16mo. (8)1-125(3)p. Frontispiece is a tipped in halftone photo of Isabella Valancy Crawford.

Decorative endpapers. Spine decorated in gilt. Blue cloth with Crawford's signature in gilt across the lower corner of the front cover. Crawford (1850-1887) was born in Ireland and moved with her family to the United States and then to Canada, finally settling in Petersborough. Following her father's death, she and her mother lived in Toronto, where she wrote many poems and short stories for the local newspapers. She frequently used Indian stories and myths in her poetry. Unsung in her own day, she is now recognized as one of Canada's leading pioneer poets. Katherine Hale (Amelia Beers Warnock Garvin, 1874-1956) was a journalist and lecturer who was famous for her recitals of Canadian songs, some of which she composed. She was also a poet and discovered the work of Crawford, which she used to publish an anthology. She has written the biographical section in this book, as well as the appreciation. Very minor wear to extremities, else near fine/ No jacket. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 03716
