A book of French novels owned by literary great Ryunosuke Akutagawa was found to have a pressed flower, which has the language of flowers representing love. Two pressed flowers were found in an English translation of French author Anatole France's romance novel ``The Red Lily'' Experts believe that this may be part of an exchange between AkUTagawa and his first love.

The pressed flowers and books will be on display at the Akutagsawa Ryun Ryu exhibition at the Museum of Modern Japanese Literature in Meguro, Tokyo, until June 8.
