Abstract:

The collection contains engravings, a few of which may be originals; restrikes; 19th century reprints from magazines and books; some original art work and tissue paper tracings, both presumably by Howland; and photographs.

Photographs include faded portraits of Lord Palmerston, Lord Lyndhurst, William Walker with original autograph, and the Rev. Dr. Marvine; a few small snapshots of Swiss scenes and a large one of a glacier; and one mounted scene of four women in front of a Victorian gingerbread house.

Miscellaneous items include Maria S. Case's high school diploma; pages from a souvenir book from the 1889 Paris Exposition; and oversize engravings of prominent Protestant Reformation figures. Individual portrait engravings include European nobility and rulers; popes; Christian saints; artists including Gilbert Stuart; authors including Milton and Shakespeare; scientists, including Sir Isaac Newton; explorers including Sir Walter Raleigh; and philosophers.

Some of the engravings may have been removed from "Gallery of Masterpieces of the Old German Wood Engravers," published 1858/1859.
