This attractive printing contains three works of moral verse by a popular contemporary writer: "A Stitch in Time," its sequel, "Love's Progress," and "Cupid's Changeling, or the Lady's Mistake." Though successful in the theatrical and literary worlds, James Laver (1899-1975) kept his day job in the Department of Engraving, Illustration, and Design at the Victoria & Albert Museum, where he worked for 37 years. He also wrote several notable works on art and fashion. (ST15053k)
