Leveridge, Lilian. “A Breath of the Woods.” In A Breath of the Woods. Ryerson Poetry Chapbooks #18. Toronto: Ryerson, 1926. 1. (Copyright 1926, but released in 1927.)

Ryerson Poetry Chapbooks are such beautiful little editions: paper-bound, but with lovely decoration on their first pages. Many of these would have been paid for by the authors. The series continued from #1 in 1925 to at least #184 in 1958, and includes a number of now-famous Canadian poets. I couldn’t resist posting the first page of Lilian Leveridge’s A Breath of the Woods to share an example of the beauty of the pages.
