19th century Victorian scrapbook. Loose page inserted inside front cover with engraved printed text: Presented as a token of affection. On the blank lines provided there is a 19th century inscription from a Mrs. Fanny Brown, which has been mostly obliterated by the handwritten note: To Patty; R.D. & Jess, Sept. 15, 1959. Book is filled with illustrated poems by Robert Duncan and mixed-media collages by Jess Collins, as well as a clipping of one of his "Tricky Cad" comic strips. Also contains two full-color lithographs by Thos. Sinclair & Son, captioned "Home-made decorations" and "Window gardening", which appear to be original to the book.
