Original grey paper boards with pastedown title and spine title, backed in light grey cloth. The author (1902-1983) is castigated by a book reviewer of Quietly My Captain Waits (1940) for not knowing what she was writing about (naval lore) , which has nothing to do with this little book of shortish rhymes. I could find no reference to this book except its title and author credit - her first. This book looks like new, calling its 1923 "publication" into questio... View more info

Original glossy white cloth on boards. Gilt spine title. Cover soil, edge and joint wear. Previous owner's name. Endpapers tanned. Interior clean, complete, and readable. Quite scarce.
