Description: (MANUSCRIPTS and MANUSCRIPT REFERENCE / AMERICAN ART.) Album containing 66 pen-and-ink drawings illustrating 2 poems. Oblong 4to, contemporary green pebbled leather, gilt-lettered and decoratively blindstamped, extremities rubbed, front cover loose. Illustrations on lined paper mounted to blank pages. United States, mid-19th century

Notes: A talented amateur artist''s humorous interpretation of "To a Woodsman''s Hut" (from Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves) and "My Voice is Still for War" (from Addison''s Cato); both poems written out in full and then broken down into lines or phrases, each illustrated. The drawings (26 for the first poem, 40 for the second) attempt to illustrate literally the individual words, and the resulting illustrations have little to do with the actual poems.
