Poems & Pictures 1

POEMS AND PICTURES.

     I have just acquired a copy of the book, Poems and Pictures: A Collection of Ballads, Songs, and Other Poems, Illustrated by English Artists, and published by Cassell, Petter, and Galpin.  It is undated, but would appear to date from somewhere between 1858 and 1878.

     It is a really beautiful book, with every single page bearing designs and engravings of various kinds.  It is my intention to reproduce several of these on the following pages.

     Each page will be complete as it appears, so if the page is blank, please be patient and allow it to load.  Each page will be a direct scan, and will consequently be a comparatively large file that may take time to load depending on your browser and the power of your computer.

     The book’s original cover design (it has been re-bound), along with its title page and frontispiece, are reproduced below.
