Nature poetry. Campbell provides a "Classified index," arranging each of her 100 poems according to the Animal Kingdom (including antelope, bees, ostrich, spider and birds), Vegetable Kingdom (including cactus, flowers, mosses, grasses and misseltoe) and "Miscellaneous." This third section includes poems on the Aurora Borealis, rocks, memory, stars and “The Comet,” presumably referring to a sighting by the author of the Great Comet of 1860. Includes chromoxylographed illustrations of a Goldfinch and a Guinea Fowl.
