Collectors album – fragments, with 45 small to large original copper engravings 1722 to 1825 dated plates. Provenance: Book-Label Warrington Museum (book-label, presented by William Robson) in 1865. This is a very large book or collectors album – a fragment with 45 smaller and larger original copper engravings and two manuscript plan drawings. A very unique collection of engravings concerning British Antiquities and Roman Architecture. The copper engravings from 1722 to 1825 dated plates. These copper engravings are stuck on paper. The leaves are in good condition, slight marks and some folded – see the pictures! More than half of the folio book pages are still blank. Ideal for you to add to this already fine collection.
