This is another book in my collection. This one a bit beat but still a gorgeous book. I love the artwork on older books, this one has pan pipes and clover and cherry blossoms that are carried over to the spine. There is a lot of gilt on the spine and the authors name set into gilt on the front cover. The pages are edged with gilt too. These older books were sewn together and hold up better than today's volumes.
