[BINDING ENCASED IN BRASS] LOVE POEMS, SELECTED

New York & Boston: H. M. Caldwell Co., [1890].

Hard Cover. 16mo. (6 1/2” x 4 1/4”); the binding itself has been rebacked in japanese tissue with most of the original spine laid down; the boards are securely encased in brass (not removable as the endpapers are attached to the brass); The hinges have been reinforced with green japanese tissue. 238 page. Several leaves at the back of the book with toning from now discarded newspaper articles.~~The book itself is a collection of selected love poems by well-known authors throughout history, including selections from the poems of William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Edwin Arnold and Robert Burns (see OCLC listing). The poetry is commonly found but the brass binding is a genuine oddity.

Very Good binding.
