First Canadian Edition. Seldom does a book give me such a warm feeling of home as this one. It flows "iambicly" with varying numbers of feet, just to keep it moving. Authentic-feeling Southern dialect of an earlier day still paints a picture for me. Authentic photos by Miner. No writing. If only I could hear Paul Robeson sing Li'l' Gal ! 123 pp. View more info

Stolen Hours

By: Eaton, Evelyn

Price: $60.00 USD

Publisher: London, Selwyn & Blount, Ltd.: 1923

Edition: First Printed...1923

Seller ID: 004653

Condition: Near Fine


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 question. 43 pp. View more info
