Album with delicate watercolours, apparently made during a voyage through Switzerland and England, by the unidentified "HVM". The first 21 watercolours depict views of Switzerland, showing mountains, valleys, lakes, small villages and some churches, a few dated [18]59. The drawings are captioned in English with pencil on the album leaves. Areas included are Luzern, Hospental, Andermatt, Interlaken, Zermatt (with three views of the Matterhorn) and some others. The following plates show views of England's country side, most of them captioned with pencil and some dated in the years between 1857 and 1868.
A few watercolours removed (5 or 6), some album leaves very slightly foxed, the binding rubbed along the extremities, but the watercolours themselves remain in very good condition.
