Author's Presentation Copy. Incorporates inspirational poems printed in earlier books, and newer verse appearing here for the first time. The author was born in Saint John, and "ordained a priest for the Scarboro Foreign Mission Society in Toronto, Ontario in 1929," whereafter he "laboured for many years in foreign lands, beginning in China in the late 20's and early 30's." Additionally, he served as editor of the Society's monthly magazine, 'China.' This copy bears Father Sharkey's inscription and signature ("With my very best wishes./God bless./Hugh F.X. Sharkey, S.F.M.") on front free end paper. Red cloth w/dull gilt lettering to front cover/spine, 147 pages, 1 ink correction on page 8 (in the same ink as author's inscription, and thus believed to be in his hand). Dust jacket illustration by Ray Butler. Christmas gift inscription to previous owner beneath Father Sharkey's inscription (this is not an additional inscription from the author, and is in both different ink and a different hand), light general wear, in dust jacket w/impressions, 1/2" tear to top right corner of front panel (does not interfere with illustration or lettering), moderate general wear.
