About this Item

Full black leather, elaborate blind-tooled boards and spine, gilt lettering on spine, a. e. g.; 6" x 7.75"; approx. pp. 60, with an engraved title-page and 5 plates (etchings and engravings). Nearly 50 contributions from about as many hands, mostly poems, and a few quotations, on love, friendship, family, religion, and more. Those bearing dates fall between 1839 and 1843, and only a few locate themselves (Bristol and Plymouth, Pennsylvania). Bright, clean plates illustrate landscapes of the Catskills, Delaware Water-Gap, Weehawken, Sawkill Falls, and Fort Putnam. Bookseller's ticket on rear paste-down. Chip out of head of spine (with signatures exposed); thin cracks beginning down joints; very light scuffing along edges of boards. Flaws are minor -- overall nice and clean, handsome.
