This image, entitled The Three Friends
was digitally photographed from a book rescued from a library dumpster. It's title: "Beautiful Gems of Thoughtful Sentiment: a vast treasury of choice productions in poetry, prose, and song from the literature and music of all ages."
It's publication information is as follows: "Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1890, by Henry Davenport Northrop, in the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washinton, D. C."
a book 116 years old, may have no longer fit the collection criteria of this particular library. It is disturbing that the dumpster was to be its next home!NOTE:
