KERR, Georgina. Manuscript drawing book completed 1905/6 whilst Georgina attended The Vale of Leven Academy in Alexandria [West Dunbartonshire, Scotland].Pp 30 of drawings in pencil, and watercolour sketches, on recto and verso of each leaf, many images around a school theme. Approx. 34 cm x 23.5 cm in landscape format. In original card wraps with “Georgina Kerr First Year” in pen on the front board and with the Academy name in pencil. The covers rather dusty and marked. The drawings give a delightful evocation of an Edwardian school; Georgina draws her Summer straw boater and her Winter hat. There are sketches from nature, and of equipment in the Science lab, kitchen and garden. Full of naïve charm.
