This Bird Has Flown

Original illustration by Albert B. Borland, dated 1907. Looks to be a mixture of ink and pencil.

Written on the reverse side:

Albert B. Borland
Norwich, N.Y.

With the annotations:

Adv. for design

Reduce to 5 in wide

copper half tone

This may indicate it was an illustration for some advertisement.

Found in "Physical Culture Magazine" from February, 1937.

Wow. That magazine's a keeper. Looks like it's full of treasures. Wonder what the market would be for it, too.

If it were in decent condition, I'd price it at $10 or so.

Would love to purchase that illustration, or a print of it at least. Is that even a possibility? Thanks!

LOL "the truth about marijuana" and "when is marriage sin?" are fantastic gems. I'd love to read this cover to cover.
