Scrapbook selection 3

Scrapbook of Watkin Wingfield including 130 drawings (most in color) executed by him between the ages of 8 and 12; clippings from newspapers (including the St. James’s Chronicle and London Evening Post) on current political and social topics, poems, epigrams, advertisements, reports on fashionable society, and news from China and India. Napoleon Bonaparte, however, is the figure most frequently represented in the clippings. Also of interest were the royal visit of Louis XVIII and the death of Queen Charlotte. Laid in are three portrait engravings published by Colnaghi: Frederick William, III, King of Prussia, Field Marshall von Blucher, and the Duke of Saxony. His interest in fashion and dress is evidenced by his many drawings of the ethnic costumes of Europe and the inclusion of many French fashion plates. Also included is a later clipping (ca. 1833?) announcing the marriage of his brother Walter Clopton Wingfield (1800-1846) to Jane Eliza, daughter of General Sir John Michell.
