Scrap Book, circa 1830's-80's
1881. Scrap book, good condition but boards are detached. 10 1/2" x 14". The book consists of 28 pages of various bits and pieces mostly clipped from books, periodicals and ephemera. Mixed with these printed items are some hand-done pieces including an ink and watercolor painting of initials. This was certainly started in England but eventually the volume came to America and some Mardi Gras illustrations and pen and ink drawing of a bird dated Beverly Massachusetts, 1881. There is even a Franklin D. Roosevelt signature from the 20th century that is probably not in his hand (the only 20th century item).
Bookseller: De Wolfe and Wood [United States]
