1910 small slim soft-leather bound book. This is the 3rd edition, after the 1906 publication. More than fair condition, it has No writing and No odors. It was once lovely, now not so much, has been well-loved in the ensuing years, but still intact and suitable for reading. Just over 4 x 6 " size; 156 pages + 4 pages in the back of print ads for other G&H books of the era; contains 59 poems. This book is red soft leather outer binding, impressed with Gold gilt title and hearts on spine, and gold gilt monogram of Ella's on the front. Illustrated with pale green Art Nouveau line illustrations printed on the endpages and inner cover. While there is No writing , the physical faults are many; edge worn leather is showing all of its 100+ years; , light mark to a few pages starting at page 23 and small pencil mark beside the title of the poem " As You Go Through Life " ; age darkening to pages, including front where a piece of paper was at one time has left in and has left its ghost mark behind - no writing, just the outline; bumped corners, worn gilt, very worn spine and edge leather, etc. etc. The red ribbon bookmark is still attached, and so are all the pages, it is still tight, if not bright. No writing, and No odors. The once-renowned nineteenth-century American poetess Ella Wheeler Wilcox 1850 - 1919 , ( " laugh and the world laughs with you " ) , led a sometimes sad life herself, but with great hope and optimisim for the future. She was very prolific in her poetry, which was read by many worldwide and inspired the masses, in masses of books which have been printed and reprinted in several countries ever since. As one of the members of the Wilcox society has said, her books are seldom valuable, but her poetry is. This book was printed in London, and, while over 100 years old, is not special except that it was published during her lifetime; but the poems inside this book are very special; they include: The Kingdom of Love ~ Meg's Curse ~ Solitude ~ The Gossips ~ Platonic ~ Grandpa's Christmas ~ After the Engagement ~ A Holiday ~ False ~ Two Sinners ~ The Phantom Ball ~ Words and Thoughts ~ Wanted - A Little Girl ~ " Now I Lay Me " ~ Her Last Letter ~ A Baby in the House ~ Husband and Wife ~ How Does Love Speak ? ~ The Watcher ~ Memory's River ~ A Married Coquette ~ Forbidden Speech ~ The Summer Girl ~ A Girl's Autumn Reverie ~ and more; 59 poems in all , in this book.
