Detailed Product Description
New York, Barse and Hopkins, 1921, 1st edition. 220 pages. 8 inch tall hardcover in its original green cloth with gold letters and design on the front cover and spine. Gold letters are readable on the spine and cover. There is an unobtrusive gift inscription on the front endpaper dated  1923. Book corners are slightly rubbed, but overall a handsome copy of Services' fourth book of Yukon poems, published just a few years after his great success with The Spell of the Yukon and other books.  

This fourth  book of Service's poetry has a thirty-one poems, with names like The Coco Fiend (about Cocaine addiction!), The Philistine and the Bohemian, and similar poems with a wide appeal. These poems are more about his life in Paris after he left the Yukon.  Encouraged by his success, he quickly wrote more poems on the similar themes, and ended up a wealthy man. 

This title is less common than his Yukon books.
