This is the entire book. The page size is 22 x31 cms. The book is larger than many of the others included in this Crane section of the archive, and looks overblown and excessive. It is certainly without the simple charm of the Toy Books. But it does represent Crane at his decorative best on the single and double page. He seems to me to be a master of the proportions of the page, its divisions and subdivisions, its panels, spaces and patterns. Taking the theme of each song he plays with the idea in a main composition. This can be an unchallenging couple of soppy lovers, arranged around a casement window perhaps. But the minor incident is always interesting and visually balanced. Note the footsteps in Jog On.
The pages with a sepia line drawing begin the book and the musical staves emerge. Crane is present in his bird emblem, and the composer Theo Marzials as a very goatish satyr, perhaps too close to the Ladies to Whom the book is dedicated. A Cupid in a printer's hat (Edmund Evans?) brings the Pan Pipes 'To all You Ladies'. The contents and title page are rich in event and decoration, and being Evans, beautifully printed with clear and transparent colours.
