Decorative paper wraps; pp. [24], each with a calligraphic poem and drawing on the verso, plus 3 additional compositions laid-in. Covers rubbed, a little chipped at corners and along edges; spine chipped. One of the laid-in compositions is lightly chipped along the fore-edge, nowhere infringing upon the lettering or drawing. Internally quite lovely, with compositions suitable for framing. Thirteen original poems and drawings (3 of which are laid-in), dating 1842-1846. Remarkably adept, accomplished floral and animal motifs, and short verses. A wonderful exercise in calligraphy and illustration, featuring cats, horses, swans, foxes, roses, and more.
