Only of the Fruitful, Loving, Seed

A Collins Classics edition of Grimms' Fairy Tales from the late 1930's. Not anything very much to look at, infact the cloth cover is quite tatty, yet the quirky personal inscription inside and the colour plates appealed enough to see cash being exchanged for it.
  The Giver-of-the-gift has seen fit to give a book of fairy tales to mark a happy anniversary. Romantic, yes possibly. However, to the contemporary eye, the sentiment in the inscription could appear a little less so due to his choice of address and wording.

Thank you.
The choice of rhyming words particularly appealed.
I see what you mean about the inscription, its very thoughtful isn't it.
