Price: $45.00

96 pp, Decorated green cloth binding, with gilt edges. Miniature book. Edited by Anna Elizabeth, this pocket book details the language of flowers. On each page, it denotes a flower, what it looks like, its meaning and then a poem or verse. For example: Daffodil - Native of Spain, Magnificent flowers of golden yellow - Uncertainty - The flowers that smiles today, Tomorrow dies; All that we wish to stay, Tempts and then flies. What is this world's delight? Lightening that mocks the night, Brief as bright. Stereotyped: Hobart & Robbins Measures 3 1/8" x 2 1/4". Minor edge wear due to rubbing (mostly on the back strip). There is an inscription by a previous owner on one page. Interior pages are soiled and stained throughout (particularly in the first half of the book), but nothing that effects the readability of the text. Page 15/16 is out of order, and is in fact before the Preface.
