A few pen and ink drawings.
Composed of numerous detached pieces (numbered and occasionally annotated by an English hand (1890-1900)), in various hands, some original, but mostly copies of documents and manuscript books, and often almost illegible due to the use of acid ink or the cursivity of the script.
