Scuffing/minor damage to top and bottom of spine binding and top corners, elsewise a clean, tight copy. ILLUSTRATED in black-and-white photography (many full page) with tissue guards, all with accompanying descriptive captions. Original and former owners' inked names and date on front endpaper. From Van Dyke's Preface: "The sixty Nature poems which I have chosen are full of various music. TheY utter the changing thoughts and feelings which are awakened in the heart of man by the procession of the seasons, the alternations of day and night, the balancing of the clouds and the journeying of the winds, the vision of the sea and the stars, the silent blossoming and fading of the flowers, the fleeting masonry of the snow, the flight and the return of our little brothers of the air. In all this wondrous pageant that passes before us we dimly perceive a meaning that corresponds to something within us. There are moments when this meaning seems to come nearer, to flash itself out more clearly, almost to lift the veil of beautiful form under which it moves. These clear glimpses are the inspiration of the true poems of nature." Contains the nature poems of Emerson, Tennyson, Stevenson, Burns, Wordsworth, Browning, Shelley, Keats, Longfellow, Wadsworth, Holmes, Shakespeare, and many others. Green cloth boards with gold gilt lettering and a pastedown black-and-white photographic illustration of the sea on the front cover. 148 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
