Well-tattered with chips, small tears, and light ceases to all edges; penciled name and address in upper margin of front cover. A scarce commemorative of Michigan’s poet, Edgar A. Guest, including fourteen of his favorite poems. Guest began as a copy boy for the Free Press in 1895, but I believe this anniversary marks his start in the news room around 1898.1 “Twenty-five years ago this month ‘our Eddie’ Guest started to work for The Detroit Free Press. Next Saturday is his birthday. Because of this double anniversary The Free Press has prepared a souvenir which it feels sure will be treasured by thousands of Mr. Guest’s friends.”
