Violets From Lowell (Gift Book in Original Box 1912), Lowell, John Russell
3 Lowell, John Russell Violets From Lowell (Gift Book in Original Box 1912)
New York Leon & Cupples 1912 Hard Cover Fine in Good Box 
Old gift books are a delight, especially when found in its original box as this one was . Not only is it beautiful, but was also kept carefully. The theme of course is the poems of John Russell Lowell paired with that of violets. Together they are totally charming. The book was given as a Christmas gift in 1912 and is recorded as such on the reverse of the front free endpaper. The hard cover boards are a padded faux leather which is pristine, as are the book pages. The box is soiled a bit and lightly worn, but the gem inside is a beauty. Art is brightly colored and plentiful. Pages are not numbered, but I counted 23 with content
