About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Toilet.

Description:

Half gilt-ruled red morocco and green paper over boards, a.e.g.; 110 x 125 mm); 20 pp., consisting of 10 brief handwritten poems alternating with 9 little gouache paintings, with moveable flaps and tissue-guards, of items from a lady's toilette (decorative bottles, a box of rouge, a mirror, etcetera). In English, and the spelling suggests Britain. Binding just a little scuffed; some faint foxing, primarily confined to the tissue-guards. A pretty little volume. A faint pencil notation on the FFEP reads, "Martha F. Simmons, for her daughter, Cornelia," and these poems are excerpted from British poets such as Mark Akenside and John Armstrong (et al), and take the tone of an older woman gently instructing a younger one on humility, contentment, good humour, modesty, and other virtues. Adept, finely detailed paintings stay with the theme of their adjacent poem -- a box of rouge opens to the word "modesty," a pretty little box containing "a matchess pair of earrings" opens to the word "attention.".
