“Up the airy mountain,
Down the rushy glen,
We daren’t go a-hunting
For fear of little men;
Wee folk, good folk,
Trooping all together;
Green jacket, red cap,
And white owl’s feather!”

Hereby presenting an excerpt from Birds from Moidart and Elsewhere (1895) by Mrs. Hugh Blackburn who also drew all of the illustrations. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“One summer (at Doonholm, in Ayrshire) a Robin built its nest in one of the drawing-room curtains, inside where it is looped up. The curtains had to be pushed back every evening to allow the shutters to be shut, but it did not mind that. It reared and took away, I think, six young ones. The next year it built its nest in the footman’s hat in the pantry, but, unfortunately, the pantry had to be painted, and the hat was hung outside the window, and it deserted. Several Robins used to live in the house in winter; they were very tame, and used to sit on the clock on the drawing-room chimneypiece and sing. One of them used always to put itself to bed on the top of the canopy of the bed in one of the spare rooms.”

Hereby presenting an excerpt from the parody Oedipus the Wreck (1888) by Owen Seaman. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

Most of these pages are devoted to a consideration of his early successes; the play of ‘Oedipus the Wreck,’ as rendered at Cambridge University in November 1887 A.D., furnishes the elucidation of his “Decline-and-Fall-Off”; while the book opens with an attempted reproduction of the Original Play-Bill of Sophocles, including actual Advertisements, date about 430 B.C.

The Preface is somewhere near the end of the book, p. 76.

Yours,
O. S.

“Are you really a soldier?” asked Woot, when they had all watched this strange tin person parade up and down the path and proudly flourish his sword.

“I was a soldier,” wa the reply, “but I’ve been a prisoner to Mr. Rust so long that I don’t know exactly what I am.”

“But – dear me!” cried the Tin Woodman, sadly perplexed; “how came you to be made of tin?”

Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Elements of Drawing (1895) by John Ruskin. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by Albrecht Dürer.

“Copy these carefully, never mind how little at a time, but thoroughly; then trace the Dürer, and apply it to your drawing, and do not be content till the one fits the other, else your eye is not true enough to carry you safely through meshes of real leaves. And in the course of doing this, you will find that not a line nor dot of Dürer’s can be displaced without harm; that all add to the effect, and either express something, or illumine something, or relieve something.”
