Self-published poetry books by unknown poets are definitely ephemeral, as most are printed in very small runs and sold primarily to friends and family. A percentage always bites the dust too, so to find one -- especially one that has promise -- is a treat. Ione U. Marthey, actually had, and still has, a bit of a following, as she writes about country things and places in an accessible voice. At the time of writing she lived in Orrville, Ohio -- that's her family home on the cover. She was also a member of the Orrville Poetry Club, the Wooster Branch of the Ohio Poetry Society, the Verse Writer's Guild of Columbus and the National Federation of State Poetry Societies. The book measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and has 70 pages. It's also SIGNED and inscribed on the title page thus, "To the --------s With Best Wishes, Ione U. Marthey, 1977."
