“The power of speaking to the eyes and heart, / Is great; and is indeed a wondrous art; / It mighty proves; it scorns the tyrant’s power, / And will remain extant till earth’s last hour: / And useful book may live from age to age, / And those unborn, may read its printed page."—Barber, 1857


Barber, John W. The Handbook of Illustrated Proverbs (New York, NY: George F. Tuttle, 1857)
