The Faces of My Friends [Collection of Artist's Pencil Sketches, Portraits]
H. S. F. R. (arranged by); Carey, Eleanor (artist); [MANUSCRIPT, FRIENDSHIP BOOK, COMMONPLACE BOOK, SKETCHBOOK]
Original navy blue cloth, gilt-stamped lettering on upper board and spine, illustration mounted to upper board; approx. pp. 80, with 28 pencil portraits (one per page, with many pages left blank, one portait tipped-on). A cute little gift book, each page with a printed heading making a pun on the face, with two lines for a name and date at the bottom -- on the verso only, inviting 40 portraits (or thereabouts). The artist has filled most of them and, in many cases, invited her subject to sign and date their own portrait. An adept artist, she's sketched numerous members of her family and friends -- young and old, male and female, frontal or in profile. A nice item, just a bit scuffed at spine tips and corners. Lightly finger-smudged throughout (as one would expect), and two pages neatly torn away. Bookseller Inventory # D1014
