The Verse Book of Muriel Faucett Power, 1895 to 1946

£39.00

Product description

This volume contains the third collection of poetry by Muriel Faucett Power, an Australian poet, whose main subjects were women's issues and religion. Her foreword explains: "From childhood I have written verse, not as literature, but, like so many other Australians, as a natural medium of self-expression", and it is true that the poems are very personal, immediate, and in some cases, only one verse long.

The book is handsomely bound in light/mid-blue cloth with gilt titles on the front cover, and a decorative gilt band on both front and back covers. The pages are roughcut, and the volume is printed on a heavy-weave paper. This is no. 93 of a limited edition of 120 copies produced in 1948, when Muriel Power was 70. There is an ink-written dedication by the author on the front endpaper, and her signature also authenticates the volume number on the final printed page. A very nice copy of a rare volume.
