Engraved writing sheet, watermark J. Green & Son. 420 x 360mm (16½ x 14¼"). Cracks and tears in edges restored. Creasing, small margins.
A writing sheet with eight agricultural scenes. Above is a large view of Stanborough Farm, with six panels down the sides (Sowing, Reaping, Going to Market, Ploughing, Sheep Shearing and 'Gathering Apple's'), and a vignette of a hay wain at the bottom. Only one panel is humorous, perhaps as a treat for a bored pupil: 'Gathering Apple's' in the bottom right shows a man falling head-first from a tree.

The Irish Schoolmaster.
The Irish Schoolmaster. Tableau
J.D. Scott 17/77.
[c.1876].
Pen & ink drawing on two sheets, 275 x 220mm (10¾ x 8¾") Trimmed and glued to card.
7 out of 10 verses of the song/poem by James A. Sidney illustrated/engraved by J.D Scott plate 17 out of 77. The original verses 3 regarding Old Marmion, 5 regarding Bonaparte and 9 regarding London being in Spain are missing suggesting a local bias. The text and Music is transcribed in School of Scottish Studies (in its entirety) and published in Robert Ford's 'Vagabond Songs and Ballads' Volume 1 1899. The style of the "Tableau" is similar to J.D Scott's 'Combination Atlas Map of Bucks County, Pennsylvania' 1876 indicating that this might also be his work. This would have been a popular item at the time when Irish schoolmasters were "in vogue" particularily in the USA.
