AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This book was prepared by the compilers, with the permission of Barrett Reid, to bring together poems associated with Reid over a period of more than forty years. It was presented as a 'keepsake to mark his sixtieth birthday' with Reid's one stipulation that nothing be written specifically for the book. In the later stages of preparation some attempt was made to include paintings and drawings associated with Reid although the compilers note that it was 'little more than a token effort.'
