Tanis [Hilda A. Davies]. Overgrown Trails (Calgary, AB: John Dichmont, n.d.).
We know almost nothing about Tanis, except that her real name was Hilda A. Davies. Early on in our project, years and years ago, I stumbled across her chapbook of poetry, Overgrown Trails, so now, finally, I would like to share it with you.
Winlow, Alice. The Miracle of Roses (Vancouver, BC: Chalmers, 1926).
This is quite a long title to post here, but as there is no other digital copy, and I had SFU’s edition in my hand, I couldn’t resist. Some of the pages are blank, so I have not included them (so don’t think that a page number missing means content is missing).
As usual, I have posted page images here as well as the link to a searchable pdf.
Again, we don’t know much about Annie Ironside Cowan (1859-1952). She was born in Sault-Ste.-Marie in 1859. She married William John James (1844-1901) of Portage-la-Prairie, with whom she had five children. She was widowed in 1901 and in 1908 married Henry James Cowan (1873-1930). Sometime after that, she moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, where she died in 1952. Her chapbook of poetry Vancouver Island and Other Poems was published in 1940.
I was updating Lily Alice Cooke Lefevre‘s entry, having discovered that her titles are all up in the wonderful internet archive, only to discover that the scanned microfilm of The Lions Gate, and The “Beaver” to the “Empress” is unreadable. So I have downloaded it, tidied it up in Photoshop, and am now reposting the page images as well as the searchable pdf I have created.
L.A. Lefevre, The Lions Gate, and The “Beaver” to the “Empress” (Vancouver, BC: Thomson Stationery, 1903).
Godfrey, Norah. Cavalcade (Toronto: Ryerson, 1946).
When I scanned this chapbook, I don’t think the Internet Archive had their copy. Admittedly, theirs is a more interesting edition, being (apparently) the author‘s own copy, with a clipping of a poem by Elizabeth Bibesco (the subject of the second poem), published in the Vancouver Sun on 20 August 1925, tipped in. Still, having done the work, I thought I would share our digital edition of The Ear Trumpet with you.
