THIS BOOK IS NOW ON RESERVE -- PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE IF YOU ARE NOT GARI.

This is a fabulous antique first edition book. The cover is gorgeous featuring an Art Nouveau embossed gold gilt on soft suede leather. The leather is a warm caramel color. The inside covers and end papers are metallic bronze moire paper.

Book has 178 beautiful art nouveau floral framed pages of lovely poems and quotes by famous people. To mention a few: Shakespeare, Dickens, Longfellow, Whittier, Emerson, Pope, Burns, Browning, Tennyson, and many others.

Book is in good condition. The top of the pages are metallic gold, while the sides and bottoms are not; don't think they ever were. Front cover has some moisture stains around right side edge and bottom (click on first photo twice and you can see the extent of the stains which are minimal), and back cover is darkened and the inside cover page is torn at the bottom. All inside pages are in excellent condition. This is a wonderful, heartfelt book that would make a lovely gift for yourself or someone dear that loves antique books. A beauty!
