A portfolio of 24 plates in a burgundy red cloth folder with gilded lettering. The folder is a bit stained and the spine discolored. The containing plates are in good condition. The folder contains a variety of sketches bij Albert Hendschel (1834-1883). The beautiful pen and pencil illustrations were made by Henschel as leisure, but his friends and father (M. Hendschel) thought his work should be shown to the world.
