This book, which sold out shortly after publication, features two of Ritchie's poems, written in his youth, under the pseudonym of Peter Lum Quince. "…it [seemed] appropriate to join once again Landacre with a couple of poems by his old friend." The dedication is to Gloria Stuart, longtime film actress and letterpress printer, who was Ritchie's longtime companion.
