About This Item

Buffalo, New Yo: The Broadway Press, 1943 A lovely book like new condition. Limited edition copy No. 223 of 1000. Macdonald's inscription under the edition ( and his address) dated 1945. On the front free end paper is a gift inscription written in Macdonald's handwriting but to a lady from Albert E.S.Smythe. Both Macdonald and Smythe were poets in Ontario at the time and Smythe has described Macdonald as a 'shy but friendly soul'. Smythe was the founder of the Toronto Theosophical Scoiety and its first president. Smythe's control of his hands by this time( he died 2 years later) was very bad so Macdonald wrote the dedication for him. The book is unmarked elsewise, clean and tight. Blue cloth covered boards with gilt title on front and spine. The DJ is clean and bright with onlty a 1cm closed tear at spine base otherwise has no shelfwear. A laid in poem be Macdonald called Roses. A lovely edition with a bit of history!
