Summary
Leather-bound album containing artwork and manuscript entries, presumably by friends and relatives of the Rev. Hubert Thomas Parker. The visual works include: watercolor illustrations of the development stages of the water-beetle, the nettle butterfly, and the dragonfly; a pencil drawing of St. Mary's Church, Hampton Lovett; a watercolor of "Lake of Sarden [i.e., Sarnen]," Switzerland; a pencil drawing of Lord Byron; a watercolor of a "Fossil fish found on Garzington Hill Oxon. 1820"; and other pieces, depicting pastoral landscapes, ruins, domestic scenes, birds, and other animals. Among the manuscript entries are: six pages of extracts from James Patrick Muirhead's anthology Winged Words on Chantrey's Woodcocks, with tracings of engravings from that book, each of the fifteen extracts signed by its writer; poetical extracts from Felicia Hemans, Catherine Fanshawe, and Moses Browne; notes on the ruins of Port Royal copied from Mary Anne Schimmelpeninck's Select Memoirs of Port Royal; and an extract from "Recollections of an eventful life, chiefly passed in the army, by a soldier, 1824, Glasgow." Dated items range from 1820 to 1831. The extracts on Chantrey's woodcocks are undated but are no earlier than 1857, when Muirhead's book was published. Laid in is a 1902 autograph letter signed A.H. Hallam Murray, thanking his recipient ("Dear Madam") for allowing him to see her grandfather's album, explaining the Byron portrait is a copy after G. H. Harlow.
