This item came in for boxing this week. The book is Manual of Botany, for North America by Amos Eaton dated 1829. There are multiple pressed flowers in the volume, and some marvelous doodles on the paste downs, and this sweet paper-cut-out silhouette. The paper is only about four inches wide. I love the detail of the bangs.
