Toronto: William Briggs, 1903. Dark blue decorated cloth stamped in gilt and light green. pp 146, [2]. Just a touch of rubbing at foot of spine, else fine. "Born in Boston, Lilla Stewart Dunlap (1858-1948) grew up in the rural Ontario town of Picton where she attended the local high school and taught. Long after she moved away, she continued to contribute a column, "Jottings from My Notebook," to the PICTON TIMES. After attending Normal School in Toronto she taught for a time, and at twenty-nine, married George Stephen Nease (1858-), with whom she had three children. After living in Hillier, Ontario, she moved to Calgary where she wrote for the CALGARY HERALD and became an early member of the Calgary Branch of the Canadian Women's Press Club, of which she became Vice President in 1916. In the later 1920s she worked as a freelance writer in Vancouver and continued writing poetry in Toronto where she lived in the early 1930s. Lilla died in 1948 and was buried at Christ Church Cemetery in Hillier." - Canada's Early Women Writers database.; Small octavo
