Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1915 Excerpt: ...soft hair blows about my face And cools each weary, burning place, My life still haunted by your grace, Christine.

And lo, she sat and stared with vacant eyes. m DOOM There, on the bitter ground, white cold he lay, Who once had been a god and still was fair, Olympian-thewed, with mighty form laid bare, Flushed faintly with the sunset's last estray.
