A Father of Women and Other Poems, inscribed by Alice Meynell, 1917


A Father of Women and Other Poems. By Alice Meynell (English writer and Vice President of the Women Writers' Suffrage League - mainly remembered for her highly regarded poetry).

Published by Burns & Oates Ltd, London, 1917. First edition.

Inscribed by the author to the preliminary title page with a presentation inscription to Albert Cock (To Albert Cock from his affectionate friend A.M. 1917), who is mentioned in letters in her archive papers, and who we believe edited her 1928 Selected Poems and Prose (?).

A very scarce hardback edition. Brown paper over boards with leather spine. Title label to front. Splitting to inner joint after first free endpaper, but still bound in. Text is on a good quality paper stock, with uncut edges. Text is clean except for 4 small blue lines written next to page numbers on contents page.

Also contains some correspondence - but we don't know if this is directly related to Alice Meynell or not.

30pp + 2pp Publisher's information.
