Description:

4to. 11.5 by 9 inches, 29 by 24 cm. With sixteen illustrations rendered in watercolors and some pencilwork. Some of the images were executed directly into the album, while others have been inserted. The botanicals dominate the album, and these are exclusively watercolors. Most of these also feature butterflies a-flutter. Otherwise, there are two ornithological plates, one of pheasants, the other of snipes, and these are done with pencil, with watercoloring used to color the birds. In the former, the pencil work is the greater portion, while in the latter, it is the watercolors that are more pronounced. Only one plate is entirely in pencil, and this is also the only one that is not of a botanical or zoological subject, but rather depicting a crucifix monument in front of a picturesque ruin, with trees towering in the background. Following the plates, there is inserted a printed text on moths, and the remainder of the album is of blank leaves. The illustrations are all bright and alive. Some scattered soiling, never marring the imagery. The binding is heavily scuffed, with abrasions of the marbled boards. Bookseller Inventory #
