1 Nitney, Alice J. The Seasons
Very Good 
N.d., circa 1900. 12 leaves on heavy paper, or card, with each leaf representing a month. On each leaf there is a watercolor vignette accompanying a line or two of verse, written out by hand with calligraphic lettering. Also featuring a hand-done diaper, or pattern, decoration for the endpapers and bound in an album format, with As the heyday of the sentiment book, with snippets of verse, famous, saccharine and/or precious accompanying soft illustrations of pretty scenes, flowers, clouds and sunsets, was fading in the realm of commercial publication, there were still hobbyists, most probably young adults, who emulated the tradition and produced manuscripts that should inspire considerable awe nowadays in their fineness and beauty. It is inconceivable that a young person would produce a document such as this in today's age! We know the identity of the creator -- Alice J. Nitney -- but nothing more about her than her name.
