And no one will tell you this, but you can’t be a man. Don’t even try. Be a woman. It’s powerful business when done correctly.

Routledge’s Miniature Library - Language of Flowers c1880

Peach Blossom = I am your captive. Pine-Apple = You are Perfect. Pomegranate = Foolishness

Measures 70mm x 97mm

There’s some great stuff in here. I never would have though that pine pitch would be included in a book about the language of flowers, but apparently you can tell someone you think they’re quite the deep thinker by presenting them with a blob of it. And boy oh boy, you better be really careful about which pinks you present your love with! And do be sure they’re either a true single or a true double. You could really mix your messages. And let’s not overlook the delicious persimon. What a message! ~AR

Anyone know what that cover’s made of? Because I have a vintage copy of Goethe’s works from roughly the same time, and the cover is somewhat similar.

The binding is card with cloth over the top which is embossed and highlighted in silver (more commonly the highlights are gold)
