Title German Autograph Album
Seller ID 001891
Dated on case 1806 but entries include ones that are from a later date. With twelve color vignettes, all done by hand. Housed in elaborate red morocco box and casing. Depicted in the illustrations are two waterfront scenes, what looks like a monastery, a hunt trophy still life, two floral wreaths, a castle ruin, what looks like a bell-shaped mausoleum, an urn trophy, a pair of pleasure pavilions, a still life of a map and assorted papers. The text leaves are generally written in an antiquated cursive now difficult to decipher. The box and casing are worn, with rubbing and the bottom pushed in from the lid, but the set remains quite handsome nonetheless.
