CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION Verse above and below image reads: 'ADVENTURE 1. / One of them, a Binkel-blink / Ventured to the rocky brink. / Quite astonished at the sight / Was he. -- Cried the little wight: / "Farewell, dear mother, I've now come out / To see the wide world, to travel about!" / Joyful every grass and flower / Nodded welcome to the rover, / Also squirrel and Bob-o-link / Gladly greeted Binkel-bink.'
