First edition of the Canadian author's book of poetry, preceding the first American edition.
THE WATCHMAN AND OTHER POEMS
Poetry had long been Montgomery's passion, but prior to this book she didn't pursue it, focusing instead on her wildly popular Anne of Green Gables series. The poem "The Watchman" was read at her funeral. This is a scarce title in any condition and when found always has several defects. This is a beautiful copy, rare in this condition.
