About this Item

All the imagery and verse in this manuscript album was done by one accomplished hand -- that of William Thorp. The pencil and watercolor sketches and drawings are delightful, whether depicting architectural detail, landscape, animal or human subjects. There are 26 pages of illustrations, many dated between 1832 and 1836. Twenty are black and white, six in color. Architecture is the most prevalent subject, with much drawn from rural England. Perhaps the most winsome illustration, though, is humorous depiction of a confrontation between a man and woman on an English street. The verse, also, is more than competent in a typical Victorian vein. The album is cased in an elaborately blindstamped ornamented black Morocco. The binding is rubbed along the edges. The joints have had an utilitarian repair. The tissue guards remaining are foxed, and some soiling of the leaves proper as well. Endpapers are pasted to one another by the hinges. A few illustrated leaves are defaced a little by probably later color transfer imagery. Bookseller Inventory # 001916

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
