Without a Friend The World is a Wilderness, Late 19th C. Penmanship Practice Notebook

Regular price $40.00

Another old penmanship practice notebook, as I can never resist these either. Not a ton of pages to this one, and I think one could be forgiven for carefully extracting a page or two to frame--I would be disposed to choose the page full of "Without a friend the world is a wilderness," though "Distance is the best remedy against evil disposed men" is pretty great too, and good advice I'd say, and I love how the "men" at the end of the line angle up and down in alternation. "The seed which is planted becomes a large tree", too.

8 1/4" x 7". 9 pages, filled front and back, plus paper cover. Good overall condition, with ink clear and strong.
