Item #3000 A Life to Hold. Clarence Hawkes.

A Life to Hold

Evanston, Illinois: The Signal Press, N.D.

Staplebound wraps. 9 1/2" X 6 1/4". 30pp. No date of publication, circa 1940-50s. Moderate wear to staplebound yellow printed wraps, with small tear to tail of spine, inked prices to upper corner of upper wrap, creasing and bumping to corners, and marks to rear. Binding is sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. Clarence Hawkes (1869-1954) was a poet and naturalist. Blinded in a hunting accident at age 13, he also became childhood friends with Helen Keller. When he passed away, the New York Times referred to him as "The Blind Poet of Hadley" in reference to the small Massachusetts town he made his home. A 2009 biography titled Clarence Hawkes: America's Blind Naturalist revived interest in his work. This unrecorded title was published by The Signal Press, most known for their temperance publications, and warns of the dangers of alcohol. Good. Item #3000

Price: $50.00
