A book of poems. The color illustrations are 3.5" x 2" rather charming renditions of nymphal dancers. According to a preface: "The author of this book, who is now dead, was a real woman, although Winifred Maynard was not her real name. These poems of hers, covering a period of thirteen years in her life . . . were written for herself, and shown to very few people. With one exception, they have been arranged in the exact order of their composition."Very scarce, and mysterious. View more info
