[Till en girig and Reflexion]

Early 19th century. 21 x 27 cm. Till en girig: 6 drawings. + Reflexion: 1 drawing.

Paper somewhat browned. Some small spots, creasing and light smudging in some places. A short tear in the margin of Cornelius Tratt.

Six drawings are copies after Pehr Nordquists original drawings illustrating Anna Maria Lenngrens poem Till en girig. Nordquist made 12 drawings for that poem,. here we have copies of six of them, numbered in sequence 1 to 6. The poetry in hand writing below each drawing. The poem Till en girig was published with reproductions of Nordquists drawings by Allhems förlag in a limited edition in 1953. That booklet is enclosed. We also have one drawing to Lenngrens poem Reflexion, depicting Cornelius Tratt sitting on his bedside drinking, It is uncclear to me if Nordquist made the original.
