Unpublished manuscript1867
[ANON] Artist’s sketch book, probably continental. In original paper covered boards, two thirds of one board lacking. Approx 18cm x 12cm in landscape format. 54 leaves used randomly on recto, verso, or both. The artist has worked in pencil, crayon and pen, and shows considerable skill. The drawings consist of street and interior scenes, character portraits, military scenes and characters etc. A number of them refer back to earlier times , suggesting that the artist might be copying earlier works. There is a date in the volume, 25/3/67 with an indistinct inscription in French, and with the numeral 7 crossed in continental style. The condition of the binding is poor , lacking most of one board, and the volume shows considerable signs of use and handling .The book is largely stable however, and is now contained in a purpose made slipcase.
condition: Fair
