About this Item

The poetic story is less impressive than the chromolithographic illustrations. Dedicated to Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Gloucester. Light wear to the corner tips and to the spine ends. The front hinge is open, but the binding is very tight and possibly was repaired at one time. There is a book-plate on the front paste down indicating that this was given to a student as a prize. Contents are Near Fine to Fine and overall a Very Good and attractive book. Each text poetry has a vignette in black and white with various floral and armorial borders in multi-colors. The poetry text is in black and red with first letters of the page illuminated. It is printed on only one side of heavy card stock with each page having a tissue guard. Hardbound in brown pebbled cloth, bevelled edges. Title and a center vignette is gilt-stamped on the front cover. The back cover has the title blind-stamped. Bookseller Inventory # 16084
