An ode to spring! A romantic book of songs, including several well-known classics, heavily illustrated and decorated by Walter Crane. This is a beautiful showcase of the Arts and Crafts movement, which valued simplicity and nature as a source of inspiration.
Interior is mostly bright and clean with occasional foxing/light discoloration, usually concentrated toward center of signatures. Binding crackles a bit when book is open but is in good condition. Some scratches to cover boards, and boards have a slight curve. Boards have some edge wear and bumped corners.
