Previously owned by Australian writer Janet Gertrude ‘Nettie’ Palmer (1885-1964). The inscription written on the front free-endpaper reads ''R.H.L on his traves, with remembrance from these Palmers. Emerald 1925''. Nettie and her writer husband Vance lived in Emerald between 1915-17 and 1919-1925. There is also the poem 'In May' by William H. Davies hand written on the back free-endpaper by what appears to be also Nettie's hand.
