Product description

This rare hardback collection of poems by Martin D. Armstrong was published in 1912 by Lynwood and Company.

Martin Donisthorpe Armstrong (2 October 1882 – 24 February 1974) was an English writer and poet, known for his stories. During World War I he volunteered with the British Army and served in France as a Private in the Artists' Rifles. He was commissioned into the 8th Battalion Middlesex Regiment, T.F. in 1915 and promoted to the rank of Lieutenant in 1916. He was included in the final Georgian Poetry anthology. He married in 1929 Canadian writer Jessie McDonald after she had divorced Conrad Aiken, making Armstrong the stepfather of the young Joan Aiken. He appears in disguised form as a character in Conrad Aiken's Ushant.

The card boards are a little stained , particularly around the edges, and the cloth covering of the spine is torn. The pages are age spotted and the page edges are grubby. A previous owner has signed their name on the first page.
