Romantic Gesture Found In A Book

Pressed Flower

In a book belonging to Emily Donelson.

I found this when I was accessioning some of the books from the Tulip Grove house at 
The Hermitage: Home of President Andrew Jackson. 

Could I have been the first person to see this since the 1830's? 

Is there anything more romantic than pressed flowers?
The remains of sentimental thoughts of passion!
At least, that is where my fancy turns. There was no note along with the flowers. 
So, I'm obviously a dreamy idealist.
