The Country Mouse

 The Country Mouse by Abraham Cowley 

Abraham Cowley (1618-1667) devoted his life to poetry. During a writing career which spanned the Civil War, his most aatractive writing is to be found in his verses in praise of love and drinking, and contrasting the peace and quiet of country life with the bustle and dangers of the city and court. 

We love these little books, perfect slipped into a Christmas stocking or secreted into a greetings card. 

"These books hover between a greeting and a present. They fit a common envelope and go for minimum postage. In cold bedrooms only one hand to the wrist need suffer exposure. A distinguished novelist recommends them for reading in the bath. An ambassador, albeit American, claims they can be palmed from the cuff during tedious speeches and profitless sermons."
