Florus B. Plimton Poems 1886 Poetry Book First Edition

Quantity available: 1
This is a very nice, first edition of "POEMS OF FLORUS B. PLIMPTON". It was copyright by Mrs. F.B. Plimpton 1886 Cincinnati Ohio, off the press of "MCDONALD & EICK" Cincinnati Ohio. This is a hardcover book with beveled edges, green cloth with beautiful gold embossed lettering and design on cover and spine. The inside cover pages has a nice leaf and vine design, green on tan paper. There are 156 pages, many have very well designed illustrations, and geometric designs, and one separate page gives the names of 17 different people who contributed to the many illustrations in this book. There is also a brief biography of the Author, born in Northeast Ohio (Portage County) in 1830. He passed away in 1886, and his wife published this accumulation of his many poetic writings later that same year. A number of his friends, and associates also wrote tributes to the life Mr. F. B. Plimpton that are contained in this book. Plimpton poems give us a sense of his faith in God, and his love for his country, and fellow citizens.
This book is well worth the reading and pondering. It's in very good shape, with some self wear on the edges of the cover, very clean pages, great binding, and quality paper was used also, that seems to resist darkening or age toning. We note a few minor small spot or stain on the cover, hardly noticeable. The book measures 7 x 9.5". A hard to find first edition!
