Bound in contemporary gilt-tooled red morocco, with gilt edges. With gilt-stamped morocco book-label of William Jameson (dated July 13th, 1831) on front pastedown.
Commonplace book, probably chiefly compiled by Eliza Jane Jameson, from 1832 to 1896. The album is inscribed at front: "Eliza Jane Jameson, from her affectionate father, W.J. [i.e. William Jameson]" The volume includes poetical extracts (some by Eliza), pen-and-ink drawings, several watercolour sketches on rice paper, as well as mounted illustrations and chinese scraps. It appears to include contributions from various family members throughout the 19th century; the last dated entry is for 1896. The illustrations include sketches of Warwick Castle, a soldier, "sketch of the Whitby School Feast, August 11th 1858", Oxford Canal, and Aston Longueville Church.
