Amelia Scarlett’s Drawing Book 1834. 21 leaves of careful pencil drawings, mainly of buildings, with some life drawing at the end. Probably copied from printed exemplars as a teaching excercises- not drawn from life. Bound in quarter leather, some insect damage to the spine, with marbled papered boards. Tissue guards to each page of drawings. Internally clean and unfoxed and without worming. There is an ink inscription running along the side of the spine “ Amelia Scarlett Norden Hall Midsummer 1834.” We have the original brown paper protective wrap for the album. A lovely, entirely original and untouched drawing book with a naive charm.
