Nella's books advertised in a 1906 edition of Publisher's Weekly: Toasts for the Times in Pictures and Rhymes and Smoke and Bubbles.

Here's a rather desirous little ditty:

I'll drain this cup
of brown delight
To lips of dawn
and eyes of night,
And dream those lips
may speak some day
All that the eyes
have seemed to say.
