Book Id: 310248


Two Pages of Typed Poems from 1953. Pages folded vertically and horizontally, light fold and edge wear, small tears and minor fold separations, small corner bends, two sets of small staple holes in the upper left corner, otherwise in very good condition. A typed note on the second page reads: "On the evening of May 14, 1953, a few friends were invited to meet Lord Dunsany at the Berkely home of Joseph Paget-Fredericks. The guest of honor delighted his hearers by reading passages from some of his writings (which were presented for his inscription); and, when he quoted some of his unpublished jingles, they were jotted down as a souvenir of that happy occasion. Their transcriber does not vouch that the punctuation, wording, and length of line as set forth above are exactly as originally intended. A.B.B." There is pen handwriting on the second pages around the typed note from "Alice" thanking Paget for a wonderful evening. There are six limericks ranging from four lines to one with twenty lines, and one partial limerick. One of the poems, commencing "For Mrs. Smith I sign / This long-told tale of mine..." is a transcription of a short poem inscribed by Dunsany in Hazel Littlefield Smith's copy of DON RODRIGUEZ, which was later published in VERSES DEDICATORY [1985].
