Notes Green illustrated cloth binding with gilt lettering and an oval picture of a woman, framed in a heart with flowers, pasted down on the front board. The book is clean, straight & tight with light wear and bumping at spine ends. One corner is a bit bumped and all corners have a little bit of wear. On one of the front endpages, a small card with a gift inscription has been glued, dated Dec. 20, 1903. The interior is wonderfully clean and free of marks or tears. The drawings by Howard Chandler Christy are delightful. I love the softness of them. Decorations done in pink on the endpapers and throughout the pages are created by Virginia Keep. The poetry of James Whitcomb Riley is always a pleasure to read! Book is unpaginated. ; Color Illustration s; 9" x 6 1/2"
