Victorian Book Plates by Irene E. Jerome Birds-Flowers-Children-Scenic 4pc. For Framing group 7
We have 7 groups of these wonderful pages/plates from a book published in 1887 titled Natures Hallelujah. The author/illustrator is Irene E. Jerome. She was the genius behind a number of books in this style. With verse from the Bible, some poetry written by herself and poetry of the greats from this era, combined with her delicate and masterful illustrations, her books are treasures from the late Victorian era. The book these plates came from was pitifully poor condition. The binding holding it together was threads, just barely holding. I would never take a book apart if it were in good condition, but I would never waste what is still in good condition. These pieces all measure exactly the same 12 ½” x 9 1/8”, each has been backed with cardboard and covered with plastic for protection. Framing a group of these will bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart. The illustrations are wonderful, the words are dear. Music to your soul. There are4 pages in this group, they are actually 4 of my very favorites. Special pieces! group 7
