A perfectly lovely edition with a dozen bright chromolithographs of flowers with charming poetry accompanyments.
Overall a Superior copy of this Rare illustrated edition. It is a solid copy with unblemished pages that are only a trifle toned with age; the illustrations retain their beauty and are UNFOXED! The floral-and-gold decorated cover retains considerable luster, though there is some rubbing to its extremities.
