Description:
This text has a hard cover with blue leather with gold detailing. There is a blue ribbon book mark built into the binding. The pages are thick and rough in texture and have gold leaf added as well. Most of the photos are in black and white, however there are some cases where the images are in color. What is most unique about the text itself are pages where text and photos seems to have been removes (cut out) and then replaces with new text/images. Some evidence of this can be found between pages 216-217, 310-311. These

Submitted by: Liza Ruano
Description:
Inserted into the book was an old handwritten letter! As well as an inscription on the front page.

Note that the book was presented to Elsie Barlow “on her fourteenth birthday,” which is appropriate to Ingelow’s poem featuring female speakers aged 7, 14, 21, 28, etc.  The appropriate section would have been “Seven Times Two: Romance”: “The child is a woman, the book may close over/ For all the lessons are said.”

Can anyone transcribe the letter?
