Toronto: Goodchild, 1921 and 1922. The annual collections of poetry by the club members, in two volumes (pp. 47, 47). Small quarto (19.5cm, 19cm) in folding paper wraps (blue and blue gray), decorative front covers-- one with gilt title, the other with impressed fancy title in light blue, cord binding (mostly missing on one), front edges untrimmed. The second volume signed by Mason and Houston on the pages with their contributions. Three poems by L. M. Montgomery ('Winter Song', 'The Gate of Dream', and 'Spring Song'). According to the Prefatory Note, the Toronto Women's Press Club held a poetry night in April of 1921 and decided to publish the poems presented by its members (and again in 1922). Volume 1 lightly sunned, especially on the rear cover which has a discoloured patch suggesting some sort of label has been removed; string ties abraded away but still present inside; volume 2 somewhat age-toned with a few whitish marks to the rear cover. Bright, clean copies.
