Jane's Keepsake book

showing Tennyson

There are a number of resources about Jane that imho have been neglected. Only recently has attention been paid to her needlework (difficult as most are unsigned) and I would love to see a facsimile of her Keepsake book which is in the British Library (Add. 45351C). I found another entry she noted:

PROUD word you never spoke, but you will speak 
Four not exempt from pride some future day. 
Resting on one white hand a warm wet cheek, 
  Over my open volume you will say, 
  'This man loved me'—then rise and trip away.         5
