Privately printed collection of poems published after the death of its American writer Maria Gross Horwitz by her ex-patriate daughter Florence Horwitz; one institutional copy only located at Yale. No publisher or location or limitation given but inscribed on the first blank: 'A little souvenir of our beloved Mother printed from memory.... Florence. Rome-March-1915.' Presumably printed in France or Italy and expensively bound in green crushed morocco, gilt monogram of 'MGH' wreathed on the upper cover, contained within a border which is replicated on the slipcase. Fading to green of spine on the book, otherwise a fine copy with green marbled endpapers, poems printed on rectos only enclosed within an ornamental border, many blanks with borders only. Slipcase is worn and rubbed to edges but intact. The poems include 'Verses by M.G.H. on the departure of her Husband and her Daughter Florence for Europe' which may explain the publication and inscription of her American mother's book by Florence in Rome. Maria Gross was born in 1845, daughter of Samuel David Gross, Professor of Surgery at Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia. She married Orville Horwitz and in 1910 endowed a Professorship of Surgery in her father's name at Jefferson.
