About This Item

New York: Oxford University Press. 1925. Signed First edition by the Editor/Author Martha Hale Shackford, Ph.D.. A collection of poetry by Wellesley women, including one of the first book appearances by Helen Hoover Santmyer, a 1918 graduate, whose first novel Ohio Town didn't appear for another 37 years, and her novel ... And Ladies of the Club didn't become a bestseller for an additional 22 years, thus 59 years after this appearance. 52 Libraries have this book but few that are signed by Shackford. Shackford wrote on the poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning in the Atlantic. She published other books but was stingy with her signature. Only one copy located. This is her alma mater work as Professor of English Literature at Wellesley College. Book does not have its dust cover and has a bump at the top with wear to the spine at the head and heel. Also has the bookplate of Lucille Cloman Norris. We have only seen one other copy signed.
