Hardcover. A rare book of verses and Biblical quotes from the California poet Frances Oettel (1912-1973). It was apparently self-published and reproduces handwritten pages of the verses that she called psalms. A stated first printing. The bi-fold pages are loose within a beige woven cloth hard-cover folder with title and author on a tan paper label affixed to the front cover. Light soiling to title label and slight bumping to some page corners. There are four delicate color illustrations depicting a tree as it appears each season. A charming and very personal book from this religious writer. In very good condition. Unpaginated [86 pages]. PRI/020118.
