Bibliographic Details

Title: Scrapbook Album with Original Artwork and ...

Publisher: c. 1830s

Publication Date: 1830

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good+


Full contemporary morocco, lavishly stamped in gilt on boards and spine; 4to; approx. pp. 200, different paper specimens, much of it heavy cardstock. Light scuffing along joints and edges of boards; thin crack at tips of front joint, but holding just fine. Album compiled by Julia Sophia Hammersley Wallace, whose name appears in lovely calligraphy on the second page; it contains manuscript poetry and more than 20 pieces of original artwork, including drawings in ink and pencil, and paintings (full color and "en brunaille"). Julia Wallace [c.1815-1900] was born in Montreal. She married Buchanan, a Major General in the Royal Artillery, in 1837 in Corfu. Many of the pieces in this album are inspired by their travels, like a watercolor of a "Mulatto of Algier," "Tomb of Sidi Mohammed el Hadj near Tangier" (en brunaille), and an untitled sketch of Greek ladies (both by W.M. Smith), "A Street in Rouen," and a ruined temple with Greek natives in the foreground. Her husband contributes meticulously detailed drawings of ships and artillery, and two beautiful pages of handwritten musical score for voice and piano. With graceful landscapes, cute drawings of animals (a dog with a tail curled so tight his hind legs lift off the ground), and a lovely botanical study or two -- a gem. Bookseller Inventory # D4557
