About this Item

Full chestnut morocco, boards and spine ornately stamped in gilt and blind, including "Grevedon" in blind, and "F.H." in gilt, on upper board; oblong 8vo (305x235mm); contains 21 original pencil drawings, each about 90x140mm, mounted to the recto only, one per leaf. Undated, but likely drawn in the late-18th or early-19th century (tho they could be as late as mid-19th); a pencilled notation on the FFEP indicates that the artist is Pierre-Louis Henri Grevedon, and the drawings collected by Franklin De Haven. Just a little light wear to binding; internally very clean, with the small leather ex-libris of American collector Robert Hoe. Grevedon (1776-1860) was known for his beautiful portraits of young women, and these bust-length portraits are no exception; showing all sorts of women, some plainly dressed (perhaps a maid), and others in more extravagant costume (coiffure, headdress), including a bride. Grevedon published several collections of drawings in his lifetime, and some of his works now reside in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, Harvard, and more.
