The Favil Press, London, July 1929. Privately printed. Plus interesting ephemera. Book condition: very good. Green paper covers a little tanned around the edges, alos some light creasing to same. Internally very good. This small book (approx 5.5" wide x 9" high) was produced to commemorate the early death of Margaret Pollock at the age of 36. The book contains 3 tipped in b&w phoographs of Margaret Pollock. In the dedication by her father (1st Viscount Buckmaster) he says 'The photographs are good reproductions of her features but the light which shone through them is quenched and by no picture nor photograph nor words will it ever be re-lit." Margaret Pollock was much more than a strikingly beautiful woman, she was also a leading figure in the Labour cause and the author of three books dealing with labour problems, "These Things Considered", "Working Days" and "Women of To-day" - the last of these was in production at the time of her death. Margaret Pollock's father (1st Viscount Buckmaster) was Lord Chancellor from1915 until Asquith was ousted as Prime Minister in 1916. Together with this little book is a letter from 1st Viscount Buckmaster dated 18.12.29 to Dr Cyril Garbett, Bishop of Southwark sending him Christmas wishes and a copy of this book "a small extract from some of the work by my daughter whom to my unending sorrow I lost last June."
