Title   Monogram Album with Monograms Incorporated into 38 Watercolors and Ink Drawings

Binding   Full Morocco

Book Condition   Very Good Plus

Seller ID   006092

A marvelous monogram album in which the monograms are creatively incorporated into charming watercolor and ink illustrations, with a few highly imaginative examples. 4to. 29 by 25 cm. 38 leaves. The most special of the plates include a painting of two women in eighteenth century gowns fanning themselves in a drawing room; a portrait of one of those two women; a seated elderly woman by a table of fruits, the woman and her pose bearing a resemblance to Whistler's Mother; a Punch and Judy show with a little boy as specatator and a man playing a drum in front of the puppet theatre; a clock decorated with painted seraphs; a china plate with a Chinoiserie painting in its center; and a pretty young woman's portrait in profile. Perhaps less unusual to the genre but extremely well done are paintings of a slipper; of a screen; of a fan; of a cart; of criss-crossed badminton racquettes; of a cannon; of a pail; of a brush; etc. A few of the paintings are slightly unfinished -- we see pencil lines and perhaps some color had as yet not been brushed on. A decorative full morocco binding by W & A Webster of Piccadilly. The binding has gilt and blindstamped fleur-de-lys and star decoration covering the boards and the spine. Condition: a slight cock to the binding, with the rear board jutting out a touch further than the front board.
