"The Book of Joy" was written by Henry Drummond "and others" and was published by Dodge Publishing Company. This book is copyrighted 1903 and has exquisite Art Nouveau illustrations throughout.
Each page has a green and metallic gold decoration. Sometimes it's a frame around the text, others its the first letter of the text. The white padded cover has a purple floral decoration with green and red text.
The book is in very good vintage condition. There is some very light soiling on the front cover and some indentations in the padding. The pages are minimally yellowed. The colors are bright and the gold sparkles. The binding is tight.
This small gift book is quite amazing and would be a special gift to give or receive.
