A beautiful scrapbook collection from 1869 by one Harriette Elizabeth Johnson, who, with beautiful calligraphy and some of her own drawings, assembled this collection of, in her words "Odds and ends, waifs and strays, scraps and atoms, Iotas and suchlike trash." Approximately 150 pages, about half of them containing content.

In fair to good condition (as can be seen in the pictures). Several pages detached. Leatherbound 4to size. A wonderful assemblage, with some very engaging compositions, several pen drawings, at least one painting with black watercolor, many poems and jottings abound, but it is mostly made of collages--some with pen drawn elements, text, and multiple images combined.
