Wow! Is this the highest res scan available? You can actually read a whole lot of that tiny stuff! And looks lik ea gourd banjo.
"The Fields His Study______Nature Was His Book"
"Departure from Louisville____Arrival in Boston."
Here's the link to the page. It's along piece of music but it's the cover fascinating.
After many storms and wanderings of life, I found a temporary asylum in this remote Kentucky cell.(name), 1818
Also, the bird is flying with "The Castle in the Moon".
Looks like a dipper/drinking gourd instrument...a fiddle or banjo
