268 Portraits in set: Henry Bone drawings, volume 1

687 preliminary pencil drawings by the enameller Henry Bone and members of his family after well-known portraits and old master paintings. These drawings were squared before they were transferred in ink to tracing paper and then to a primed copper or brass plate for painting and firing. They were preserved by the family for future use and eventually annotated and pasted into 3 albums.
