Title:Nineteenth-century British scrapbook of theatrical, historical, royal, and artistic content
Date(s):1846-1899
Call No:MSS 0093, Item 0040
Abstract:This British nineteenth-century scrapbook of theatrical, historical, royal, and artistic content features images created from multiple printing processes, predominantly monochromatic engravings, though the album also includes original artwork, elaborately printed[...] Victorian-era greeting cards, and other color illustrations. Collected images include Italian, French, and primarily British landmarks, abbeys, cathedrals, historic landscapes, and British monarchs and nobility. This scrapbook also contains numerous theatrical images of Shakespearean actors, apparently cut from Tallis Dramatic Magazine, and General Theatrical and Musical Review. The date span for this album ranges from 1846-1890s, based on the inclusion of eight chapter illustrations by Phiz from Charles Dickens's Dombey and Son, which was serialized between 1846-1848, and a portrait of a mature Edward, Prince of Wales.
