About This Item

[New York]: Poets' Guild, [nd]. Four small octavo sheets (ca. 190 x 125 mm), printed rectos and versos, plus three related items in the same format. A bit of foxing and tanning, margins of one item slightly frayed; very good. Four of Branch's contributions to this series of small broadsides ("My Mother's Clothes," "My Mother's Hands," "My Mother's Stories," and "My Mother's Words"), all reprinted from her collection, THE SHOES THAT DANCED (1905). Each has been signed by the poet in ink beneath her printed signature. Accompanied by three contributions to the same series by her mother, Mary L. B. Branch, each inscribed and signed by Anna H. Branch beneath her mother's printed name, identifying and commenting on the poem. Contained in a somewhat worn and frayed postally used Poets' Guild envelope addressed in her hand. Branch (1875-1937) organized the poetry readings held under the auspices of Christadora House, the settlement house she sponsored on the Lower East Side of New York City, that lead to the foundation of the Poet's Guild.
