Green illustrated paper over boards with green cloth spine, 14.7 by 22.9 cm, includes a one-page preface and a one-page introductory poem, followed by 55 pages, each illustrated with a single bookplate by Ricketts, Theodore Spicer Simson and Frank Bramley. Heavy wear at the extremities, with stains, scuffs and skinning to the boards; the endpapers are foxed, but the textblock is only lightly yellowed. There is a label on the rear pastedown for the Cazenovia [Michigan] Public Library, with the accession number scratched off, and what I presume was a card pocket that has been removed. From the preface: “some fresh combinations of the heraldic, view, and purely decorated plates, have been aimed at; and the title 'composite' taken to indicate, generally, the character of the contents.” Fuller, p. 90.
