Beschreibung:

Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, 25, xxix, 140 pp, [12] leaves of plates. From the text:"The "really truly" gift-books had an appearance and make-up all their own, very different from any other volumes. At first they were the small duodecimos, then octavos, and finally some of them appeared as quartos. Their bindings were ornate, often to the point of gaudiness. If of leather the covers were heavily embossed, or profusely gilt, or if a cloth was desired, a watered silk dress gave distinction to the volumes. Some of the earlier ones had engraved paper sides, usually green. Some had bindings with a floral design inlaid with mother-of-pearl. A few had slip-cases to protect their bindings, a ribbon being attached with which to pull forth the volume. Some had large paper editions, sold at a higher price than the regular copies. The contents consisted of prose - short stories and essays - and selected poetry often with flowery borders about each page. There were illustrations - engravings or colored plates - dignified in the catalogues as embellishments. These numbered anywhere from one to twenty-five or thirty and were either illustrative of the text (though there are suspicions that oftentimes the story was written up to the pictures), or had no connection whatever with the contents. There was, usually, an engraved or colored "inscription plate" upon which the donor was expected to write his name and that of the fortunate recipient-to-be. . In their names these literary annuals were especially distinctive. They were gifts, tokens, souvenirs, mementos, keepsakes and offerings, with all conceivable qualifying adjectives, or else they bore the name of some flower, plant or gem. Every phase of every subject had its token, from "Mourner's Chaplet" to "Marriage Ring," from "Mother's Present" and "Young Maiden's Mirror" to "Young Man's Guide" and "Pastor's Gift." There were "Leaflets of Memory" and "Thought Blossoms," "Rainbows" and "Snowflakes," and "Dewdrops." The subtitle was usually "A Christmas, New Year's and Birthday Present." Thus in binding, contents, illustrations, and name these interesting "butterfly books" were easily distinguished from the common run. " An ex-library copy with a label on the spine, label and docket on the front free endpaper, otherwise Good. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

If of leather the covers were heavily embossed, or profusely gilt, or if a cloth was desired, a watered silk dress gave distinction to the volumes. Some of the earlier ones had engraved paper sides, usually green. Some had bindings with a floral design inlaid with mother-of-pearl. A few had slip-cases to protect their bindings, a ribbon being attached with which to pull forth the volume. Some had large paper editions, sold at a higher price than the regular copies. The contents consisted of prose - short stories and essays - and selected poetry often with flowery borders about each page. There were illustrations - engravings or colored plates - dignified in the catalogues as embellishments. These numbered anywhere from one to twenty-five or thirty and were either illustrative of the text (though there are suspicions that oftentimes the story was written up to the pictures), or had no connection whatever with the contents. There was, usually, an engraved or colored "inscription plate" upon which the donor was expected to write his name and that of the fortunate recipient-to-be. . In their names these literary annuals were especially distinctive. They were gifts, tokens, souvenirs, mementos, keepsakes and offerings, with all conceivable qualifying adjectives, or else they bore the name of some flower, plant or gem. Every phase of every subject had its token, from "Mourner's Chaplet" to "Marriage Ring," from "Mother's Present" and "Young Maiden's Mirror" to "Young Man's Guide" and "Pastor's Gift." There were "Leaflets of Memory" and "Thought Blossoms," "Rainbows" and "Snowflakes," and "Dewdrops." The subtitle was usually "A Christmas, New Year's and Birthday Present." Thus in binding, contents, illustrations, and name these interesting "butterfly books" were easily distinguished from the common run. " Near Fine. Artikel-Nr. ABE-14428
