A very rare and lovely book, CUPID'S ALMANAC AND GUIDE TO HEARTICULTURE contains beautifully colored Art Nouveau illustrations and calendars, and combines astrology and accepted traditions at the time focusing on love, romance, courtship and marriage with references to the different plants, flowers, and other noted practices. A beautiful and fascinating little book! The boards and binding are solid and tight save for shelf-wear and minor scuffing (the book is from 1908!). The pages are crisp, colorful and clean save for a smudge or two. A highly illustrated and beautiful Art Nouveau work on love, courtship, engagement and marriage by two noted authors.
