  • General note

    The album is encased in a red leather box inscribed, "Drawings of Sydney and New South Wales / Westmacott 1850-52". The date appears to be incorrect as there are several drawings of the Illawarra area where Westmacott lived 1838-1847. Six of the drawings may be studies for lithographs in his Sketches in Australia ... Exeter, W. Spreat, [1848]. Two of the drawings may be studies for lithographs in his Sketches in N.S.W. ... on stone by W. Gauci. Printed by C. Hullmandel, [184-?]. -- information from catalogue card
    "Foliated at bottom of page D.L. 1972" -- noted inside front cover
    "William Dixson" bookplate inside front cover
    "ZDL PX 53 from Add 577" inside back cover
