"...she is another's bride,
I saw her at the alter rail: we stood there side by side.
She shall not break her vow to me,
She's mine through all eternity,
She's mine till death shall set her free,
Those bells shall not ring out."

1 1/2" x 2 1/8"
38 pages, 9 illustrations

A blood-curdling piece of Victorian popular entertainment, this song thrilled music hall audiences and family circles around the parlor upright. The flowery sentimentality of the language may distract today's readers from the essential brutality of the story, but this song made strong men weep. The book, however, takes a lighter view, and the text is backed with pretty arabesque designs, and is illustrated with pictures from The Popular Entertainer and Self-Instructor in Elocution.

Bound in a Florentine-like print of flowers and sinuous leaves, on a white background. This little book has decorative endpapers, and a paper title pasted on the front.

Designed, printed and bound by Pat Sweet for the Bo Press. Signed by the artist.
