About this Item

Folio Album (399 x 308 mm). An Album of Twenty-Five Original pencil drawings and sketches heightened with red chalk in fourteen guarded window mounts. Sheet size approximately (343 x 229 mm). Usually with two drawings per sheet, including one drawing win pen-and-ink and watercolor wash, all but two signed. Three-quarter red morocco gilt over gray buckram boards. A fine collection. Hablot K. Browne, also known as "Phiz," was a prolific illustrator and caricaturist, who succeeded Robert Seymour in 1836 as Dickens's illustrator for most of his major novels. He also illustrated many other novels, including books by W. H. Ainsworth and Charles Lever. These drawings represent three cycles of medieval romances, complete with princesses, fairies, goblins, knights in armor, and various animals, including some finely drawn horses. The initial drawing is captioned "The Two Caskets," two drawings bear opening lines ("Once upon a time" and "There was once"), and two are marked "Finis" and "End," respectively.
