2 Emma S. Album of Eleven Fine and Original Watercolor Botanical Studies
1874 
Large oblong. 14.5 by 11 inches, 37 by 18.5 cm. Nine leaves with artwork, meaning two leaves have two drawings each, the rest have a single watercolor of varying size. All watercolors were done on separate sheets then inserted into grooves neatly cut into the album. Many blank leaves behind those that are used. The watercolors were executed by one hand without question, an Emma S. who was a German speaker, based on the tiny caption, mostly illegible, that is written neatly in the corners of a few sketches (the cursive is antiquated and thus not easy to decipher but the umlaut, rendered with one penstroke, was in keeping with writing styles prevalent in German-speaking lands then). One of the sketches bears the date of 1874, and it is assumed that all were done at about this time. The watercolors are uniformly vibrant and clean. The morocco spine and cloth of the boards are worn, with rubbing along the edges and joints.
