The quintessential "reading copy" Pelkey starts with nutshell background, what was going on: the Thirty Years War, crimes against agriculturists by state and church, a mass exodus from the Pfalz or "Palatinate of the Rhine

Day by Day, by Patrice Oliver, 1917 Hillcrest Road, Hollywood Cal

By Roycrofters, The; press and publisher

East Aurora NY: The Roycrofters, for the author. Paperback. Unpaginated, every other page rubricated, about fifty pages of printed poems recto, each facing a brief diary entry. Softbound, faux "finepress," 8x5.5 inch yapp-edged wraps; the slightly smaller textblock is stapled and also has a fancy cord through stab-holes to prettify the result. Cover decorated with art nouveau knock-off, shows a young woman taking a photograph with box camera. Externally somewhat edgeworn and toned, cord begun to fray, the untrimmed textblock unmolested and very clean. Be warned, the verse is worse. Poetry constructed around lines "from the Diary of a little thirteen-year-old- girl who came to California from Ireland. Each poem is a record of an important event." For instance the child wrote "July 1st. Summer has come. It is very warm" and the adult warble-eth ten lines of doggerel. Selling point of item in hand is the press, a semi-collectable craftsman-style outfit that outlived its founder Elbert Hubbard. In his lifetime the design and production could be quite substantial; this latter effort is surely a "for hire" effort, with our feckless poet causing his Hollywood home address to grace the fine-ish titlepage.
