The top leaf has an embroidered decoration over a moire silk fabric and sewn in are the initials L. A., or so it appears. Entries dated throughout the 1850s into the 1860s. Illustrations include that of a maiden with a straw hat, a rock in the landscape, a still life of letters, a lake landscape, a mountain landscape, a seraph, a bouquet on paper with raised decoration. Several of the text leaves feature writing that can only be read with a mirror. The loose slips of paper are housed in a lovely contemporary cartonnage box. The decoration on the front board of the box is rubbed. Still overall a handsome box. The artwork within is of various quality levels, with the best being very fine indeed.
