Toronto: McClelland, Goodchild & Stewart, 1916. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good binding/no dust jacket. Signed. A presentable copy of Lucy Maud Montgomery's eighth book. Her Boston publisher L. C. Page had refused to consider publishing her poems. This is the first of this Canadian author's writings to appear from a Canadian publisher and is dedicated "[t]o the memory of the gallant Canadian soldiers". The title poem "The Watchman" was read at Montgomery's funeral. One of the more difficult of her books to obtain in decent condition. Signed by L. M. Montgomery on the front free endpaper. There is just a trace of rubbing to the spine, and very scattered foxing. Blue cloth binding stamped in gilt which has darkened. Very Good binding / no dust jacket.
