This little book is designed less as a manual of good counsel for the plighted or the newly-wedded pair than to furnish appropriate selections for their reading, and a marriage keepsake for their happy home.

The sentiments and mottoes are from the “ Lapidarium " of Marbodus, a Latin poem of the eleventh century. That some of them should be a little fanciful might be expected of that period. The grouping, it will be remembered, is not for the literal, but the figurative, bridalring.
