Notes: "When, in 1943, Tim Thrift issued a volume of poems by Ernest A. Edkins, he used a brand new imprint, Wildwood Press, so called since his home was on Wildwood street (tho it faced Salisbury), Winchester, Massachusetts. Other collections of amateur writings were planned under this imprint, but his illness and death limited the imprint to this single volume." © James Lamar Weygand
