I very much like these old gift books from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This one has no date, but is filled with vintage charm including such niceties as heavy paper with a deckled outer edge, a tipped-in color illustation at frontis (rather than having been printed on the page), a dustjacket, and gilt embossing to the front cover. Though Stevenson is listed as the author, the fact is there are many including Robert Browning, Tennyson, Abraham Lincoln and others. There are no illustrations other than the one mentioned, but the type fonts provide mch variation. Includes Brownings "Grow Old with Me". Book measures 4"x9" and features twelve poems or uplifting quotations. Not heavily religious.
