Hardcover Near Fine; Signed by Author's niece on blank page with Presentation notation. Scarce. 1st Printing. Nice Firm Clean copy ! 100 pages. Miss Gertrude Alger was a very young poet of merit, who produced graceful and finished poems. Born in Yarmouthport, Massachusetts on May 19, 1868, she died October 25, 1889, at the age of twenty-one. These poems were arranged by her mother. This memorial volume is Gertrude's only published work. Poems are presented by year of composition 1882-1888. One or two of her poems found their place in late nineteenth century collections of contemporaneous poetry. 1885 poem titled 'Summer Rain': Spirits of the summer shower,/ Tiptoeing from flower to flower,/ Here and there, and everywhere,/ tripping! tripping!/ In between the petals fair/ Of the blossoms, slipping, slipping!/ Dancing over/ Rosy beds of nodding clover!/ And I hear - or is it fancy?/ All the garden flowers dipping,/ Swaying, tipping;/ Every rose and purple pansy/ Curtsying, now here, now there,/ Light as air;/ Bending low its pretty head/ 'Neath the shower-spirits' tread. Boston, MA 12mo 6.75 - 7.75'' tall B00G5LFQ5W

Custom full red leather binding, five-ribbed spine with gold ornaments, spine base dated 1930, front board gold stamped with owner's initials E.B.D. Top page ends gold gilt, silk reading ribbon, marbled endpapers. Presented as a gift by Darling to E.B.D. Inscription: 'A trifling gift but one which / bears with it all my love and / wishes for a thousand more / happy birthdays - and with / the thought that you too like / Vagabond's House. / Ding / Newport, Rhode Island. / May 30, 1930.' Jay Norwood Darling (1876-1962), better known as 'Ding' Darling, is mostly known for his political and conservation cartoons. A top-ranking political cartoonist syndicated in 130 daily newspapers, Darling reached an audience of many millions with cartoons noted for their wit and political satire. He was awarded Pulitzer prizes in 1923 and 1942, and in 1934 was named the best cartoonist by the country's leading editors. He was also an important figure in the conservation movement. He conceived the idea for the Federal Duck Stamp program and drew the first stamp design. Despite his inexperience, he was appointed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt as head of the U.S. Biological Survey, the forerunner of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He also founded the National Wildlife Federation in 1936, created the Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit Program, and laid the groundwork for the system of today's National Wildlife Refuges. He used his satirical pen to promote issues of conservation and to bring national attention to environmental concerns. Thanks to this one man, much natural habitat has been protected across the United States. Near the end of 1947 Darling left his drawing board to do an ecological study of the islands of Hawaii as a consultant.The Hawaiian tour of duty became a labor of love for Darling, and he spent longer than he had planned in turning out a report more detailed than had been anticipated. 114 pages. Donald Benson Blanding (1894 - 1957) was an American poet who sentimentalized warm climates and was sometimes described as 'poet laureate of Hawaii'. The multi-talented Blanding was an Artist , Designer (Vernon Kilns Dinnerware, Greeting Cards, Hawaiian Clothing), Songwriter, Theatrical Actor, Director and Producer of Musicals, Soldier, Lecturer, Radio, Film and Television Personality, Newspaper Columnist, and founder of Lei Day in Hawaii. Blanding's poetry contains lush, lyrical images of Hawaii and the life of a vagabond. Vagabond's House is a detailed fantasy which begins When I have a house - as I sometime may - I'll suit my fancy in every way. then describes a home filled with the mostly exotic mementos its poet collected in years of wandering the world's seaports - or at least might have collected if his travels had not interfered - and closes by admitting It's just a dream house anyway. New York, NY 9.13 x 6.57 x 1.11 B00G5L9IZQ
