113 pages; Very Good/No Jacket. Orange boards with black lettering and illustration. Jacket remnants neatly pasted to back blank pages. Spine is very lightly sunned. Tiny foxing at edges. Just a bit of shelf rub at corner tips and spine tips. Soft bumps to corner tips. Boards are straight, spine is square, tips are pointed, and pages are clean. Delightful illustrations by J. Paget-Fredericks. One example from this wonderful collection for young people: Autumn Chant, which is part of The Harp-Weaver: Now the autumn shudders In the Rose's root. Far and wide the ladders Lean among the fruit. Now the autumn clambers Up the trellised frame, And the rose remembers the dust from which it came. Brighter than the blossom On the rose's bough Sits the wizened orange, Bitter berry now; Beauty never slumbers; All is in her name; But the rose remembers The dust from which it came.
