Drawings are not labeled as to subject. Items were executed on Whatman paper. Artist's name is written in brown ink in the lower right corner of the border, along with the date 1799. Writing appears to be in the hand of G.C. George, the man who formed the collection to which these works belong, rather than in the artist's hand Provenance: Drawings have been added to an extra illustrated copy of the 1802 Boydell edition of the works of Shakespeare. The set has been extended from 9 to 11 volumes by the addition of a collection of Shakespearian drawings and engravings gathered by George C. George of Penryn, Cornwall. According to the bookseller, Bernard C. Quaritch, the collection was formed about the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries. The set was purchased by the Folgers from Quaritch in July of 1918 Subject: Drawings have been inserted to the text of All's well that ends well. The bookseller has mistakenly described the items as illustrative of Florence. Both watercolors show ships in the water. The first drawing views the port from the town side, the second is a view from a bank across a bay This record contains unverified data from old cards and may contain incorrect or incomplete text.
