Gift dedication to fEP dated 1912. Printed on what appears to be hand-made paper, there is a small loss to lower edge of pg. 25. English librarian Basil Anderton's admired Fragrance Among Old Volumes has been described as being "idylls of the book world". This volume, dedicated to the author's wife "Who knows and loves the colours of the country", consists of 12 poetic descriptions of picturesque scenes of the year. The book's dedication reads: "To my wife, who knws and loves the colours of the country." Of the third month, Anderton writes, "March. the last-born son of winter and the destined sire of spring, comes rushing in on the wings of the storm to claim his heritage. As his triple largess he scatters abroad snow, and sleet, and rain . Anon his mood changes again . For whole long days he will have sombre skies, and gloomy air, and rain. But by the 20th .there is in his eyes the love-light of parentage . So the mystic birth of spring is at its season accomplished. Thereafter March will linger for a while and play with his child . He will give her as playthings and companions, the plumping buds, the fresh-opening flowers, and the birds . last, when his appointed hour is come and he must needs depart, he will again summon his mighty winged steeds, and with somber austerity go forth to join his great brotherhood of the months 'that are no more.'" Prose poetry. N° de ref. de la librería 007756
