“One of a series of ‘flower fantasies’ produced by Crane towards the end of his life, it combines the originality of his earlier illustrative work with haunting fragments of quotation from Shakespeare. Here are Ophelia’s rosemary, pansies and rue, Perdita’s marigold ‘that goes to bed with the sun, and with him rises weeping’ daffodils ‘that come before the swallow dares’, the musk rose and egalantine of A midsummer night’s dream, and many more … in this ‘little posy from the plays.” Quarter cloth over decorated paper boards. Condition: boards worn and marked. Cloth spine rubbed. Contents clean and bright. With Ronald Blythe’s neat ownership signature to front endpaper.
