Description
 
The tone is set for this album containing 59 pen and ink and/or watercolor drawings by the verbiage on the image on the inside cover of a scroll with a whimsical lad at top reads: In Truth it is not every Book, That's suited to the Mind, In some for ever you may Look, And no Amusement find... But seldom does an Album fail, To please both grave and Gay, It teems with many a joyous dale, And many a mournful Lay. So Reader Learn, Who'er you be, Wise, Witty, Grave, or Lad, 'Tis like the World in some degree, Made up of Good and Bad. Neatly executed. Some done after Cruikshank. Measures 8" x 11".. Covers separated but present.
