'Jacky Come Give Me Thy Fiddle' - Victorian nursery rhyme illustration
A portly medieval gentleman attempts to persuade a lively violin player to hand over his instrument but the fiddler refuses.
“‘Jacky come give me thy fiddle - If ever thou mean to thrive' - 'Nay I'll not give my fiddle - to any man alive. - If I should give my fiddle - They'll think that I'm gone mad - For many a joyful day - My fiddle and I have had'.”
From “Nursery Rhymes - Ridicula Rediviva” illustrated by J.E. Rogers, with chromolith printing by R. Clay Sons & Taylor and published in London in 1876 by Macmillan and Co.
