Beautiful Edition of OUR GIRLS Poems in Praise of the American Girl, published by Moffat, Yard Company in 1907.  The binding is soft green cloth, with gilt lettering and a color lithograph on the front. The poems are by various authors such as: Samuel Peck, Brander Matthews, Frank Sherman, George Woodberry, James Fields, J.G. Whittier, A. H. Gilbert, and many other classic poets. It is the illustrative plates that are truly special, 18 in fine full-page color with tissue guards, the rest are black & white plates by Howard Chandler Christy, with a red decorative border.

Howard Chandler Christy was famous for the "Christy Girl" which was similar to the Gibson Girl. A classic for those of you who adore poetry, Amercian Art and all things Christy, 160pp. This book is in good antique condition, the cover has bumps and wear, and inside, the first illustration has come loose from the binding. The binding is somewhat on the looser side, still this is a gem to own, to cherish and learn from.  {the Christy illustrations are often sold at 28.00 ea. by dealers, I always prefer to keep the book together to sell}
