Miniature Victorian gift book, A Psalm of Life

This is a 1/12 scale miniature book I have reproduced to scale in it's entirety, with all the wonderful prose and Victorian imagery, some by C. Klein. This small book would be lovely in a Victorian setting, on a night stand or Victorian dresser, ready for the lady of the house to pick up for inspiration.

My original book "A Psalm of Life" from which I made the copy is prose written by H. W Longfellow and published by The Holiday Publishing Company, Buffalo & New York from the early 1900's. The entire poem or psalm is printed throughout the book with the beginning letters of each phrase in Old English script and lovely floral borders. There are six accompanying full page reproductions of old chromolithographs, including a portrait of Longfellow, roses, violets, pansies and scenes. The cover has a lovely illustration of poppies.

It is a wonderful Psalm, a real favorite of mine,
" Let us, then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait."
The size of this small miniature version is 9/16" x 7/16" containing fifteen printed pages.
