Sherman family library

This is a small collection of books that once belonged to R.S. Sherman and his daughter Maud Rees Sherman. They had a much larger library than this, and Maud compiled a list of more than 100 books in her personal diary, in which all of these are listed, except for Far Away and Long Ago. This was gifted to R.S. Sherman by Hugh Dent, the publisher, and it has Sherman's personal bookplate inside. Puck of Pook Hill's by Kipling is the first Canadian edition of the book. Charles G.D. Roberts was a well-known Canadian author who wrote a number of books that anthropomorphized animals with names, speech, and tales of the wild woods. He visited Vancouver in the 1920s, in connection with the Vancouver Poetry Society, and may well have met R.S. Sherman.
