[Album of sketches in St. Moritz.]
[c.1870; drawings dated individually, July and August 1867.]
39 original pencil drawings from life, heightened in white and a few with watercolour; pasted into custom-made oblong 4to album, original dark green morocco binding stamped 'St. Moritz' in gilt to upper cover. Some foxing, waterstain from right edge. Evidence of three missing leaves; some blank towards rear. Some small dents and chips to binding.
Charming and very competent depictions by a Victorian amateur of alpine buildings and landscapes, some featuring figures; each captioned and dated by the artist in pencil. A unique and intimate record of a summer spent in St. Moritz, the exclusive resort town in the Engadine valley in Switzerland.
