Antiquarian Book: Flowers for Mother's Grave - Compiled by John McCoy M. D. - A Collection of Poems and 'Flowers of Thought'


This lovely volume of poetry and other 'flowers of thought' was compiled by John McCoy M.D. after the passing of his own mother. He found, at that time, a lack of suitable words, and was moved to collect together, in one volumes, flowers of thought for others suffering the same bereavement. "Flowers for Mother's Grave" is a charming volume of love expressed, copyright 1882. Probably this is a first edition of this rare book. It was published by Wever & Co. 1883. Beautiful illustrated frontispiece of angels.

Just one small inscription in the front of the owner's name in ink. In the back inside cover there is the remnant of an old sticker. It has gold edging to the pages, still quite bright.

CONDITION: Good. There is quite a bit of bumping to the corners of the cloth and board cover, and the spine is cracked in places, but all pages still in place, and it's tighter near the back of the volume.

SIZE: 5 inches by 7 1/2 inches.
