The sketchbook originally belonged to Raymond Bonheur, Rosa's father, whose name is written on the back free endpaper. It contains hand-written notes and drawings by him as well as by Rosa. It is suggested in the auction catalog for the sale of her estate (Galerie Georges Petit, 1900), that some of her drawings in the sketchbook probably date to 1844. The approximately 95 pages with drawing include studies of plants, animals, birds, landscapes, decorative objects, farm tools, farm workers and other human figures. Most are in pencil, two have added pen and ink, one is in ink and wash. A pencil study of a bird (wagtail) on leaf 15r has added watercolor.
