This is entitled The Book of the Home by H.C. Davidson.
Front title page says 1901. Under Notes it says there is a copyright on the title and also says the copyright has not been evaluated.

Would like to read a selection from this text for the Xmas Collection. Is that possible?

Thank you.

Betty:

This looks like it should be ok. We're still waiting on an MC here...but it was published before 1923 which is the PD line in the US.

As soon as we have a MW, I'll put you in it (Just let me know which selection you are reading.).

Many thanks,

Philip

Colleen:

Here is the usage in the text:

"PREFACE.

Most of the following poems have appeared in
the ' S. Barnabas' Parish Magazine.' For my
godchildren and my people I have made them
up into a little bundle of sticks — a Christmas
faggot
to feed the fires in the winter palace of
our King. " (Emphasis mine).

In 1884 the term had not achieved its 21st century derisive status.
Sorry if you were offended.

Philip
