- Series: Album of Drawings of Flowers, Etc.
Loose sheets of paper with Ford watermark in front and back inside covers. Ford watermark. Album contains twenty-eight folios with fifty- five drawings of flowers, plants, insects and birds, attributed to Shafi` `Abbasi.
Album originally leather-bound with paintings of flowers on front and back lacquered covers. A memorandum by Anthony Gardner on a preliminary page, dated February 1942, describes the album's condition before restoration measures. These replaced the leather binding with linen hinges and attached the lacquer boards to new covers. An eighth of an inch was also trimmed from the folios' lower edges.
