About this Item

Second edition, following the first of 1850, of these dicta regarding proper Christian management of the connubial state. "If the reader expects to find highly wrought sentimentality or romantic fancies in the succeeding pages, he had better lay them down, and seek for gratification elsewhere," (p. 3) ? but there is some sweetness here in the exhortations to mutual dedication. This has a very pretty engraved title-page, acting as frontispiece; between the arched words "Bridal Greetings," above and below, is a bridal bouquet of emblematic flowers, signed F.E. Jones. Binding: Publisher's textured red cloth, covers framed in blind, front cover with gilt-stamped rose vignette, spine gilt extra. All edges gilt. 16mo. Frontis., 160 pp. Not in Faxon. Binding as above, cocked, extremities lightly rubbed, front cover with tiny dark spatter; joints each with small instance of insect damage. Front free endpaper with pencilled annotation. Moderate foxing throughout. Bookseller Inventory # 30370
