    (COLOR PLATES). P[ALMER], F[RANCIS]. Flower Tokens. N[ew] Y[ork]: Litho of F. & S. Palmer, 34 Ann St., [1847-48]. Sq. 12mo. Orig. gilt stamped black morocco, light rubbing of corners. $325.00

     

    A fine authograph album, completely filled in by neat hands in ink. With six wonderful full page color lithographs by the Palmer firm (Peters, p. 305). The titles of the lithographs are: "Violet--Modesty" (this is the title leaf), "Forget Me Not," (woman waving to a paddle wheeler as it disappers), "Flax--Industry," "Orange Flower--Purity," "Snowdrop--Youthful Hope," "Convolvolus--Repose." Each shows one or more women dressed with colorful flowers. Very attractive. Not in Bennett or Reese.
