8vo. 115pp. Original cloth-backed boards, matching lettered spine panel. Light toning at edges. FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED with a poem. The poet has signed and dated the copy 1912 at top, and she inscribes it with an 8-line poem for "Mr. Gomme" on the front free endpaper: "I wonder, shall I add thereto, / Or let the name stand all alone? / What is the proper thing to do, / I wonder? Shall I add thereto? / I've autographed so very few -- / If I am wrong, let this atone; / I wonder shall I add thereto, / Or let the name stand all alone? / S.T. for Mr. Gomme." This is presumably Laurence Gomme, collector of performing arts material, and bookseller. Bookseller Inventory # 400737
