(Toasts) Phelps, Idelle. Your Health!

Illus. with drawings in orange by Helen Alden Knipe. Olive cloth, paper cover & spine labels. First Edition. Philadelphia & London: George W. Jacobs, [1906].

Toasts of all kinds, from humorous to nostalgic to melancholy: "Love makes the time pass, time makes the love pass" (ouch!), to a dog: "Here's to the friend whose friendship once determined never swerves. You can bet on him every time," "Here's to the chaperone, may she learn enough from Cupid, just enough blindness to be sweetly stupid," etc. Mild rubbing to spine ends, chipping to spine label, else very good.
