San Francisco: The Blair-Murdock Co. 1915. Hardcover. 60p., frontis-portrait of Townsend, prologue, ownership signature and bookplate, first edition in wine cloth and gilt with light shelfwear and irregular sunning.
The San Francisco lawyer/poet has not decided if he is to be Ambrose Bierce (who has a poem included here) or George Sterling. He is neither. Misogyny disguised as wry humor, anti-suffrage poetry, maudlin romance (sorry, that is redundant is it not?).
