LABRADOR DAYS: TALES OF THE SEA TOILERS. Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1919. Octavo, inserted frontispiece, original powder-blue cloth stamped in white. First edition. Grenfell, an English physician and advocate of the "muscular" Christianity so characteristic of the Victorian period, went to sea as a medical missionary and, after discovering the woeful conditions of people (including English emigres) in Labrador, Canada, devoted the rest of his life to building an impressive network of charitable institutions there. His writing, both of fiction and non-fiction, helped aroused support for his causes. Cloth dusty, else a very good copy. (#133409).
