Walter Milne autograph album

 Item
Identifier: MS-0567
Dated 1914 in the owenership inscription, this little volume includes a number of quotations and original verses inscribed by family and friends, a pencil sketch of a Sopwith Pup, and a caricature of two black waiters with a caption reading "Cook's Tours Personally Conducted." There are also two nicely accomplished pen-and-ink drawings of ships. Friends have noted favorite authors, "authoresses," and heroines, with two pages devoted to a series of cut-out autographs (possibly not original) affixed beneath photofraphs of Ellen Terry, Estelle Stead, and others. Place names are London and Hunstanton (Norfolk).
