Rhymes of a Roamer by Courtney D Farmer

Rhymes of a Roamer by Courtney D Farmer

I can’t find any reference to this booklet or the author. 8″ X 5″ 28 page well produced booklet. Published by the Author at 100 Rusholme Road Manchester in 1928. no mention of who did the woodcuts. A very pleasing publication, but as I am no aficionado of poetic merits, I can not comment on the quality of the poetry. I do like the small woodcuts though.

Burns – Burnsiana: A Casket of Characteristic Gems by W R Donald

Though this copy is not dated, I believe the original copy was published in 1898. I am presuming that WR Donald was the WR Donald who was the President of the Bradford Typographical Society and a witness to the events that led to the birth of the Independent Labour Party in the 1890’s. Google has little on him concentrating instead on a Black American Football Player.

Donald published a number of works.
