Book identification in photograph Elizabeth Williams
« on: Monday 01 February 21 22:51 GMT (UK) »
I was wondering if anyone might be able to identify the title of the book in this photograph of my great, great, great grandmother? Unfortunately, I don't have a higher resolution version available and I don't know if the name of the book can be determined but there are some fiendishly clever people in this group, so one never knows what can be done.

It might read

 'One ?? One ??
                          and Other Pieces'


I don't think it would be hers though. It's more likely a photographers prop that has been given her to hold to signify literacy.

"and Other Pieces"

Or maybe it is 'and Other Poems.'  It's a slim volume so it's not a novel or ordinary work of nonfiction.
