Digitized scrapbook of Anthology of English verse

Collection of scrapbooks containing poetry verse, primarily about blindness, spanning 1734-1951.


Our goal is provide resources that are accessible to all

A collection of scrapbooks on the topic of “Anthology of English Verse” have been digitized and made available on the Internet Archive, which utilizes optical character recognition (OCR) and downloadable file formats, including Daisy, to provide access to users who are blind and visually impaired. We acknowledge that OCR is prone to errors, and cannot recognize graphics or handwritten text, thus creating barriers to these materials. It is our intention that by providing the materials as is, the resource is findable online to all. If any of Perkins Archives resources accessed online aren’t accessible in part or in whole, to a user because of a disability, we will create an accessible version upon request.
