And Folly's All They Taught Me! | Print | Wisconsin Historical Society
Valentine's Day card of a large red heart, with a man sitting in a chair over it. His chin is resting in his right hand, and he appears to be in despair. He holds a mortar board graduation cap in his left hand. There are photographs on the wall and an open book on the floor. The verse on the left side reads: "Tho Wisdom oft has sought me, I scorned The Lore she brought me — My only books were woman's Looks, And Folly's All They Taught Me!" Chromolithograph, die cut.
