One can think of no dearer place to record one's poetical observations of nature and feelings of tenderness and melancholy - preoccupations of the 18th-century Romantic mind - than these purse- and pocket-sized journals. The Romantics viewed the world as a place where delicacy and modesty combined to create perfection, and these journals would certainly have been welcome in the library of any refined Englishwoman who thought deeply on matters relating to aesthetics and emotion. Gentle books of sensibility are the perfect accessory for those moments of contemplation in the garden that lead to impulses of genius. Inspired by an antique leather binding from the 1843 volume of "The Poetical Remains of Henry Kirke White of Nottingham," these sublime journals are certain to bring out the romantic in anyone.
