Notes

First trade edition, first printing, of this collection of 13 poems and accompanying woodcuts, following the limited edition of 525 copies in a larger format on handmade paper published by the Brothers of the Book in 1916. The publisher, Laurence Woodworth was the scrivener for the Brothers of the Book, a small private press "made up of those who like well-printed books" based in Chicago and founded in 1898 (The Printing Art, vol. 21). Kendall Banning (1879-1944) was an author and magazine editor best known for dedicating his Censored Mother Goose Rhymes, to "the censors of America who have taught us how to read naughty meanings into harmless words". The illustrator, Gustave Baumann (1881-1971), was one of the leading figures of the colour woodcut revival in America.
