About this Item

Black faux leather over flexible boards (7.5in x 9.5in); approx. pp. 120, lined, completely full of handwritten poems and quotations, with additional ephemera attached or laid-in. Covers a little creased; some light scuffing and chipping at spine tips and corners; internally nice and clean. Dated "New Year, 1925," the collection begins with a hand-embroidered American flag and a two photographs of Mother. Thereafter, every page is filled with her florid script, usually in blue ink, collecting poems and quotations on life, love, advice, and religion -- even a few entries entitled "Wit" and "Spiffy Spoofs." One of Mother's witticisms is illustrated and colored by another hand on a small piece of laid-in paper, with a note from Mom on ther verso, "Mildred Drew -- some talent -- Mom." There are two more hand-colored illustrations by that contributor to the final page and paste-down of the book. One, a lesson from Rockefeller on "the making of riches," with an image of him sitting in front of a telephone. The other, an image of a man sitting in an armchair and dreaming of a woman, a big house, and a ship. A bit odd, nice little keepsake. Bookseller Inventory # D2372
