An album of amateur etchings, mostly by Charlton Wollaston and The Hon. Booth Grey, and a few pen and grey wash landscape sketches and portraits. Many of the etchings are represented by multiple impressions and variant states, and on various paper stocks. Also mounted in the album is a copy of a bust of a man by Miss Clarke, from College-Green Worcester and dated 1789. Some later prints, mounted on 19th century photolithographs. The etchings represent country scenes — thatched cottages, peasants, farms and farm animals, and peasants at work — as well as views of churches, villages, ruins, and landscapes with row boats and skiffs on rivers. Also included are several engravings and prints from published works on various topics including a large engraving of Greek sculptural elements pasted on the inside of the back cover.
