James Whitcomb Riley was known as the Hoosier Poet, National Poet and Children's Poet. His verse tended to be humorous and sentimental. He claimed he was successful because his poetry portrayed simple sentiments that come straight from the heart. These love poems certainly illustrate this, with love spanning the expanse of childhood to death, farmers and flowers. The illustrating photos are in black and white and very good.
Book is in good condition with one bumped corner and a penciled name on the inside cover. Also some minor bumping on the top and bottom of the spine. This is a real jewel for your library.
