At ev'ning by the sea I sat, / And watched the sun which sank to rest. / It changed to purest gold the waves, / And filled with glory all the West." A pleasant volume of 24 poems celebrating nature, family, growth, and faith — apparently the Kentucky-born author's sole publication.
WorldCat locates only nine institutional copies, these in a rather odd array of places with perhaps some being accounted for by H.L. Mencken's having reviewed the volume not entirely unkindly in Smart Set.
For Mencken's remarks, see: Smart Set, "The Bards in Battle Royal"; vol, 37 (1912). Publisher's red cloth with gilt lettering to front board and spine; publisher's emblem blind-stamped to rear board, light rubbing to extremities. Top edge gilt, other edges deckle; small stains to bottom edge of pages. => A pleasing collection of down-home'y poetry. (Inventory #: 37793)
