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.

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.

Title:Eclectic nineteenth-century British scrapbook
Date(s):1865-1890
Call No:MSS 0093, Item 0029
Abstract:This eclectically compiled nineteenth-century British scrapbook features collectible scraps of flowers, animals, children, birds, and work scenes; greeting cards; original ink, graphite, and watercolor artwork; material related to British royalty;[...] scenes of famous British places and buildings; and numerous images from varied sources. Several items depict "exotic ethnics," such as a black woman, an "Indian," "Orientals," and "Arabs." Not all of the 36 leaves in this album are filled: the first 23 are filled, perhaps by a young woman or teenage girl; the last two leaves are filled with five color printed images of British trains cut from Boys Own Paper, suggesting perhaps a brother or son is responsible for those images in the album.
