Album Dedication

Page, 152 x 203mm (6 x 8in), painted and designed, along with acrostic verse, by William Charles Bird of Plymouth for his album dated August 1876.

  • Within this volume you will find,
  • Pieces choice and rare;
  • Culled from many a clever mind,
  • With thoughtfulness and care.
  • But each now forms a link,
  • In friendships golden chain,
  • Review them carefully - & think
  • Do they here appear in vain.

The initial letters of some of the lines form the name of the album's owner "W C Bird".
