London: Gay & Hancock, [1914], undated . . . dated from a copy held at the British Library. 4to., 28.8x22 cm. xiii, [1], 2657 pp. Publisher's ivory cloth with gilt and green decorations and decorative endpapers. 20 tipped-in plates including the frontispiece by Dudley Tennant.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox's most famous poetry collection. This edition beautifully illustrated with colour plates by Dudley Tennant. A very beautiful edition of the poetry of the American author Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Strikingly illustrated with a tipped-in colour frontispiece, and nineteen tipped-in colour plates collated and complete.

This collection of poems, first published in 1883, threatened to spark a scandal due to its title. However the poems became much beloved by the American public, the collection including poems such as 'A Fallen Leaf', 'How Like the Sea', 'Says Cupid to Mammon', 'Friendship After Love', and more.
