Shown above is an illustration from our copy (designated “Xtra”) of Herbert E. Palmer, In autumn (London: Charles Mitchell Press, 1931). The verse beneath begins “In Autumn the last fruits turn mellow, And many flowers flaunt yellow, And brown and russet-yellow are the hill-spaces That the winds haunt.”
