The exact date of publication cannot be determined but the author's name is preceded on the title page-cover by the words, "The Late.." so the date 1934? is an educated guess. Scarce. 3 copies were listed in on-line catalogues: at the Libary of Congress, the University of the West Indies and in the small collection of the author's works at the Hamilton College Library, Clinton, NY.
