A Rare Find...published in 1886 by D. Llothrop & Co.,
This lovely treasure is bound in beautiful black leather with gold leaf writing, and gorgeous gold leaf trim on all the pages...
Just in time for Mother's Day
or a special Birthday gift perhaps. Maybe a treasure just for you.
When I stumbled on this amazing volume and saw the writers who contributed to these writings
and the gorgeous illustrations, I was thrilled.
Poetry of the likes of John Keats, Walter Scott, William Shakespeare and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, to mention a few of the twelve contributing authors. The list of illustrations include fifteen beautiful book plates of wonderful artists renderings.
Lovingly worn, in beautiful condition considering this Antique book is over one hundred and twenty years old.
A bit of scruffing on the bottom corner of the binding. This is truly a rare find, I usually search the book files before I list a book, I could not find this unusual and wonderful treasure.
I have Just listed this lovely Antique volume in my etsy shopFor The Love of Old Books.
