Published posthumously, this is a collection of poems inspired in part by the author's visits to England and Scotland, and written during the years indicated. McLennan (1879-1938) wrote two other books, 'Children's Artist Friends' (1931), and 'History of the North Easthope Pioneers from Perthshire, Scotland' (1937). This copy with brief TLS slip taped to front end paper, reading, "One copy of 'Memories' by Mary Louise McLennan for the Department of Education, Fredericton, New Brunswick to be kept as a record especially because of the preface. No copies for sale." Beneath the typescript the editor (the author's eldest sister) has dated and signed the slip ("April 5-1941. Janet Cumming McLennan"). Obviously, a very scarce item. Hardcover in navy cloth w/gilt lettering to front cover, forty-five pages, illustrated. An ex-Legislative Library of New Brunswick copy w/discard stamp (on LLofNB stamp, beneath TLS), small sticker glue to bottom left corner of front cover, mild sunning to top edge of front cover, Legislative Library stamp to front end paper, library numbers in pencil to same, a second LLofNB stamp to rear pastedown, LLofNB embossed seal to title page. Although an ex-library copy, this is in pretty decent shape.
