These Victorian collections of stories, verses, & engravings in highly decorative, blindstamped & gilded bindings are my favorite books to collect. This one dates to 1840, bound in red leather instead of the usual cloth. Beautiful gilt decorations on both covers & spine. Condition is fair: Darkening to the leather, wear to the red surface of the leather around the edges & corners, & slight splitting between the front cover & spine. Numerous pressed leaves found inside. There is some mourning material inside, and the frontispiece is called “The Widow’s Hope.”
