    I've done so much research, and I just can't seem to figure out who/where this book belonged to. After everything i seem to think it belonged to multiple people...or maybe print company that did litho's or etching I have no idea. A lot of hand drawn pictures, and hand drawn litho size pictures...Any information..idea's would be awesome. I've drove myself crazy trying to figure this book out. I've included the link to album they are all in..I took a picture of almost every single page..minus a few . Most every colored picture is hand drawn...With the exception of i believe the 2 colored type litho's that are small and square.

    A few have handwritten info (besides the notes) similar of the title and artist info in the plain bottom margin of an etching or print. Bigger, clearer pictures of the "notes" and the writing on any of the artwork is in order.

    Isn't that interesting? Suspect it was owned by a young lady from Scotland who had studied art. Seems to have had admirers too. Would you be kind enough to post close-up straight-on photographs of the pages with text?

    I can't be of further help without good quality photographs but, as above, not England. Scotland.

    This looks suspiciously like Raphael:

    Here's one of the contributions... from the Scottish Post Office Directory for 1850-1851. ("Arch" is for "Archibald," of course.)

    "Ritchie, Arch, manager London and Edinb.
    Shipping Co. 5 Madeira place"

    Some of these appear to be student work, to my eye. Looks like not all were done by the same artist. Are they ALL original work? I ask, because some look like prints.

    I am going to suggest that you take one piece at a time and photograph it fully in close-up. No one should be expected to make sense of bits and pieces.
