The Victorian era really solidified the idea that women were not just the anchor of the home, but its moral and spiritual foundation. This high Victorian volume is filled with sentimental & devotional verses & essays that attest to the pedestal on which the mother was placed, for good or for ill. As expected from a time when child mortality & childbirth rates were extremely high, there are numerous selections on the subject of loss & grief, including not just the deaths of children but comfort for those enduring the loss of their mother.

Mustard yellow publisher’s cloth with black & gold decorations on the cover & spine and several black and white engravings throughout. Condition is good overall with a dampstain that affects the verso of the title page, some soiling to the covers, and edge wear.
