I bought this small volume of poetry when I was in high school mostly because I loved the illustrations. My tastes have evolved over the decades but I still have an appreciation for how utterly feminine, romantic, and frothy these designs are.
This lovely volume would also make a nice gift on Valentine’s Day with poetry by Browning, Tennyson, Byron, Shelley, Rossetti, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Dickinson, Blake, Wordsworth, and others.
To Have and To Hold, published in 1967, is a Hallmark edition, and is available on Amazon for under $5.00 including shipping and handling.
Forget new age chic…think old-fashioned pretty!
