And the picture story books

This lovely 1908 first printing copy of "The Good Wolf" by Frances Hodgson Burnett includes a charming Christmas gift inscription taken from the Robert Louis Stevenson poem, "Picture Books in Winter".

Summer fading, winter comes -
Frosty mornings, tingling thumbs.
Window robins, winter rooks,
And the picture story books.
