This printable antique poem is titled Margarita. It corresponds to the illustration of the Victorian lady Margarita that I posted to my blog this morning. I scanned the illustration and this poem from a magazine that was published 175 years ago. The pages within the magazine naturally and beautifully validate their old age. Although I will never know who they are, I am grateful for each person who has preserved the magazine (and the book it’s bound in) through its travels in time for us to enjoy the images and pages from it today.
My scan is from the January 1842 issue of The New Monthly Belle Assemblee.
