About this Item

Contemporary morocco-backed cloth; oblong, 175 x 125 mm; contains 20 pen and ink drawings, each initialled and one dated 1861, plus several pencil drawings by another hand. Backstrip perished; front board detached; text block shaken. Drawings are very near fine, suitable for display, with just a little dustiness here and there. Accomplished pen and ink drawings -- some of them hand-colored and many of them comic -- show hunting scenes ("Three Jovial Hunstmen" being a wonderful example, as they appear unlikely to catch anything), families of mice, families of chickens, some caricatures, the silhouettes of monkeys painting at an easel, a couple walking through a field, a man in traditional Turkish costume (this last one more formal, with gouache details).
