Ruled exercise book, 73 leaves, 8-3/4 in. x 6-7/8 in. A collection of some 85 poems dated 20 Dec. 1925 - 5 June 1928. The poems are variously written directly in the notebook, or on different sorts of sheets which have been mounted to the notebook pages. There was a photograph mounted inside the front cover, but its image is no longer visible. Many of the poems concern Kains-Jackson's memories of his cousin and lover Cecil Castle, who had died in 1922, other poems and notes refer to the painter Henry Scott Tuke. "A London lawyer and the editor of an outwardly respectable magazine, "The Artist and Journal of Home Culture" . . . Jackson discovered the poetry of Edward Cracroft Lefroy . . . From 1888 until his resignation of editorship in 1894 Jackson employed the magazine as a front for purveying Uranian material and recruited many contributors from the pages of The Spirit Lamp. These writers...make up the central core of the movement," (d'Arch Smith, "Love in Earnest"). Jackson published comparatively little of his own work, just two small books of poetry, both concerning his romance with Cecil Castle, making this an unpublished third collection, which could be both a summing up of and a nostalgia the relationship.
