General note

All drawings in this series (except item 9) are on card-stock quality, postcard-sized, paper and are decorated on recto with an embossed gold scroll border. All drawings are stamped on verso in ink: "Harvard College Library Mar 28 1902."

All annotations are in the hand of Henry Hamilton.

The text is transcribed in full, though some words are written in very faint graphite and in those instances a ? follows the questionable word or is substituted for an unreadable word. Many of the details in the description are taken from the Walsh article or Dunnigan book listed above.

Titles have been assigned by the cataloger using Hamilton's annotations.

Drawings have been grouped together by mat number for storage purposes as noted below.
