Octavo. 74 pages. Publisher's blue cloth, decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Binding slightly bumped, and with a bit of light rubbing and soiling, previous owner's ink name on front free endpaper. Light foxing to endpapers. Altogether, a lovely copy. Very good.
From the publisher's preface: "'Posies' are the poetry of posy rings and kisses. They will be found to explain themselves. These couplets are just innocent pretty things to which we might well return. Their composition exercised the wit of many courtly rhymers of the Sixteenth, Seventeenth, and Eighteenth centuries. During many years I have searched for 'posies,' and these are the best which I have found." A.L.H. (Arthur L. Humphreys).
