Paper-covered boards, backed in red morocco; 11.25 x 14 inches; contains 75 grey heavy cardstock leaves, each with a drawing in pencil or black ink mounted to the recto. Boards scuffed; binding shaken; slight wave to text block. Artwork, however, is in fine condition, suitable for display. A remarkably accomplished collection of drawings, in pencil or black ink, usually one per page (average size is about 7 x 10 inches), with one page offering 7 small sketches mounted together. The landscapes in this volume seem to be located around Illinois, and include bridges, barns, "View Near Sanger and Moody's Quarries;" and it includes portraits of people known and unknown (Abraham Lincoln, a little black girl named "Topsy"). The portraits of famous people are likely drawn from statues or paintings, as the artist also includes architectural ornaments and details. In addition to the tranquil landscapes and portraits, the artist also includes some lively scenes, like a preacher at his pulpit, a couple dancing, men watching a yacht race.
