An anthology of poems and sayings collected by Pamela Grey, with decorations by her son, Stephen Tennant. Mother and son had collaborated three years earlier on The Vein in the Marble and the present volume contains similar fanciful motifs, although there is evidence of a maturing style. The title derives from the white file in which the author collected her pieces.
