Pioneering off-beat anthology. Comprising poems of 'honest labour' depicting a world almost entirely populated by men. Includes a wide range of leading poets, mainly 19th and early 20th century, and virtually all male. The resolutely apolitical choice of material is arranged under heads such as Men, Machines, Description, Idleness, Content, Discontent. *** Inscribed by the editor : 'For Thelma with love from Dorothy. November 1926'.
