Daisy Ashford: Her Book

Daisy Ashford: Her Book - Daisy Ashford I own the 1920 copy. Odd little book of stories by Daisy and her sister Angela when they were children. J M Barrie (the author of Peter Pan) wrote the introduction and for some reason, the book became an instant best seller, mostly likely because of it's novelty.
