Drawings & Watercolors
Illustrations chiefly in colored wash over pen and black ink or graphite, with a few illustrations in pen and black ink and one in charcoal. Captions in pen and ink or graphite.
Quarter red morocco-style binding with brown textured cloth covers.
An album of mounted watercolor sketches done by Mary Alexandrina Stanhope (some of them are signed "MAS") between 1875 and 1895. Some of the sketches are done from nature, and most of these are captioned with the location and date the sketch was made, others are copied from drawing manuals, and these are typically labelled "copied". The majority of the sketches are of the villages of Esholt and Buckden in Yorkshire. The captions occasionally provide interesting sidelights on the location depicted or the circumstances in which the sketch was made. The single charcoal sketch has caption ""The twilight hour' My first drawing club drawing", another sketch has caption "Buckden - done with Miss Middleton", and yet another has caption "Aunt Lizzie's rose garden - Esholt - 1886".
Subject Terms:
Buckden (North Yorkshire, England) -- Pictorial works.
Esholt (Bradford, West Yorkshire, England) -- Pictorial works.
Yorkshire (England) -- Pictorial works.
