About This Item

Toronto: Thomas Allen, 1946. 88 pp, small 8vo (7 5/8" H). Inscribed on front free endpaper: "Friendly greetings Edna Jaques". "Edna Jaques was born in Collingwood, in Ontario on the shore of the Georgian Bay. Her father, Captain Charles Jaques, sailed with the old Northern Navigation Co. for years, but one day announced to his astonished family that he was leaving the water and taking to the land. They were going homesteading in Saskatchewan. To a homestead in Saskatchewan, thirty miles southeast of Moose Jaw the family came in 1902 and proceeded to farm, making every mistake greenhorns ever made, but these were the good years when the prairie gave forth its increase without much coaxing. Edna Jaques has a way with her. Men and women feel the magnetism of her presence. She has not seen life from the side lines. There is a choking realism in her poems that makes her phrases glow and burn and through all her work, there shines like a thread of purest gold, her love of beauty, her hunger and thirst for everything that is sweet and honest and kindly." Very light browning to edges of textblock, one tiny corner bump, minor edge wear, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has moderate edgewear/wrinkling, small chips and tears - some with creases, light rubbing and soiling.. Inscribed By Author. Later Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good-.
