The Womans Press 1923 Hardcover Good Fair 
Hardcover First Edition, signed by the poet on the title page. The book is in Very Good condition, but the dust jacket is tattered and aged. Now protected, under a clear mylar sleeve, the jacket has tears, chips and some stains/ spots. Board edges are a little scuffed. These make-believe rhyming plays for children are wonderful old-time pieces reflecting a love of nature, fairyland and a vein of paganism that remains childlike and fanciful, following the wheel of the year through the seasons.
