A Thought For You by Edwin Osgood Grover

I love this little book published by P. F. Volland & Company, Chicago, in 1913. The title is A Thought Of You and was written by Edwin Osgood Grover.
Though small, this book says a lot in very few pages. Each page tells of someone thinking of another in different situations.
The pages are printed on a pretty marbled parchment-looking paper. Each is accented by Art Deco looking designs in orchid, sage green and a metallic gold.
The book measures 4x5 1/8" in size and has a title page and five pages of verse. The pages are held together on the inside by a pretty piece of dark orchid twine. It was made this way.
The outer cover has darkened with age and has some wear to the edge. There is surface wear to the cover. The binding edge has a couple of dings on it and a 1/8" piece missing from the top edge.
The interior pages are extremely clean with no dog-ears. The blank page across from the title page has a written message of Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the giver. The last verse page is also signed by the givers, Nora & Beer.
This would make a very nice gift for Valentine"s Day. It is a wonderful piece of memorabilia with a true nostalgic feel to it!
