pp 16. One of twelve copies of this illustrated collection of verse produced by the Lilac Tree Press in Wallasey on the Wirral. The volumes was presented to Lea's native 'Southport Libraries from the author' with a letter tipped in explaining how Lea taught at the Liverpool College of Art and 'the Dean of Liverpool, who is one of the printer's subscribers, has ordered five leather-bound copies of this particular work.' This copy is bound in yellow library buckram which preserves the original printed blue card wrappers with their vignette of hands in prayer. Usual library stamps but otherwise a clean copy with wood-engravings by Eric Ramsden and limitation statement to the final leaf stating that the book was designed and produced by the Lilac Tree Press and limited to 12 copies.
