London: Cassell and Company, 1909. First Edition . Green Cloth, Gilt. Near Fine. Plates Throughout. 160 Pp. Green Cloth, Gilt. Clean Example Of The 1909 Issue, Gilt Brilliant, Notable For The Long Prose Meditation By Carl Oscar Borg Which He Has Written And Signed On The Recto Of The Frontispiece: "Yellow Leaves: Yellow Leaves, Our Best And Brightest Thoughts Are They. The Deeds And Dreams Of Our Youth. A Sweet Sadness Emanates From Them As Trhe Shadows Fall Deeper And Deeper And The Wings Of Silence Hover Over The Past. Yellow Leaves, Moving Against The Evening Sun's Last Flickering Light, You Are Like A Sweet Melody Played By A Hand Gently Caressing The Golden Strings, Or A Song Sung By A Poet When First His Soul Knows The Terrible Truth Of Life And Is Overflowing With Silent Sorrow And Unspeakable Joy. Yellow Leaves, Falling Through The Clear Lights Of Evening To Mingle With The Cold And Dark Dust Of Earth, You Are Like Our Own Tired Souls That Are Seeking Rest In The Dreams Of Nirvana; Or Like The Spirit Of Fire We Have Drawn From The Heights Of The Ideal, The Holy Fire That Has Died -- No, Not Died As Yet, Still It Glows In The Fading Light Like All Of Our Dosappointed Hopes, Our Shattered Illusions, -- You Glow And Shine Against The Sky Like Crowns Of The Blessed Against The Virgin's Dark Blue Mantle, And So Is Even Your Death A Death Of Beauty. Yellow Leaves In The Yellow Forest Of Life (,) Roads And Paths Are Hidden Under Your Golden Mantle, And When The Winds Are Moving Among The Trees It Is The Memories Of The Past, Pale Legends Of Our Dead Loves, Of Our Sorrows And Our Joys That Are Singing Their Meloncholy Tales With Soft And Inspiring Voices. Carl Oscar Borg Los Angeles. July 1910". Also With Borg's Earlier Ownership Signature On The Front Free Endpaper, Dated Los Angeles 1909. Probably A Gift To The Sculptor Julia Bracken Wendt Or Her Husband William Wendt, And Then A Gift To The Artist Pasquale Giovanni Napolitano, Who Apparently Owned It Since The 1920'S Or 1930'S.
