Walter Crane (August 15, 1845-March 14, 1915), son of Thomas Crane (1808-1859), a portrait painter, was an English artist and book illustrator. Considered one of the strongest contributors to the child's nursery motif in the genre of 19th century English children's illustrated literature, his work featured child-in-the-garden motifs.

Abstract:
Manuscript, in a single hand, of a collection of twelve sonnets addressed to the author's beloved, and address such topics as the beloved's figure, eyes, the book of love, and time spent away from the beloved. Throughout, love is figured as nature, and the writer imagines himself in various scenes of nature as he describes his love. Most of the sonnets are dated. The volume also contains two detailed pen drawings, one illustrating a house and its environs; and another of a figure of a grim reaper in a garden being watched by a young boy.
