Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...the two ideas under the one object: 18. E no s muda ni no s cambia vostra colors; ans es pus fina nil tans que deflor oiglcntina, cant es un pauc entremesclada blancha, vermelh'e colorada; so pot dir totz horns que vos veya: ' This is an unusually good example and the only instance I have found of the sweet brior or wild rose.
