An album of original drawings, watercolors, poetry and more by various hands. This album is full of beautiful original works of art, manuscript poems, and more. This album includes an original piece by Belgian artist Emile Puttaert depicting a stream running through a forest. The artwork ranges from depictions of hell, demons, circus ringmasters, flowers, cats, nature scenes, women on bicycles, fox hunting, and more.Overall there are a total of 46 pages that have either an image, manuscript or both on them. The artwork was obviously done by trained artists. Some of the artwork is simply tipped in while others are not. A few pages were removed by a prior owner.
The book is bound in red leather with a hand-made jacket with illustration. Both the binding and the jacket are torn and fragile. A beautiful antique album from the library of rare book dealer Martin Stone. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and don't forget to check out my other listings.
