The Friendship Book of Anne Wagner, 1795-1834

I’ve recently discovered the Public Domain Review, a compilation of beautiful and fascinating things in the public domain.

A recent post on their site is about a friendship book, a sort of scrapbook to share with friends, belonging to a girl growing up in the late 18th century. The book is just five inches by three inches, and includes drawings, poems, and collages contributed by her friends.
