Abstract:

The scrapbooks, apparently arranged by Lucia Alexander, contain mainly letters to the Alexanders and Italian photographs. There is no consistent chronological order. A small portion of the letters relates to Francis Alexander's career as an artist in Boston. The bulk reflects the Alexanders' contacts with Italian society, particularly with the family of Luisa Murat, with English and American visitors to Florence, and Lucia's interest in autographs of famous people. Two volumes record reactions to Fanny's books, art, and charities. Many letters from prominent individuals are manuscript copies; some letters are fragments. Most of the photographs are of Italian scenery, buildings and works of art; a few are of notable individuals. The scrapbooks also contain drawings by Fanny and others, watercolors, prints, invitations, death announcements, programs, and clippings. There are also five folders of items found loose in the scrapbooks, and a copy of Fanny's Tuscan Songs.
