another collection, this time just two...they are linked because of their gilded spines, they are both victorian and both were published by thomas y. crowell & co., as well as, a snazzy illustrated cover page with tissue separator. they are both lovely books, particularly l'avril which i think is letterpress, and has beautiful illustrations throughout. it's also in top notch condition.
