- Curator's comments
- Some of the prints are lettered, some unlettered. 1924,0308.12 is a variant of 1924,0308.11 (portrait of Maria F. Malibran) and may have been bound in subsequently.
Though the cover boards are original, a new lining--and the sequence and appearance of the prints--suggest the group has been rebound and supplemented.
