I recently listed a bunch of double-sided drawings from a small sketchbook by a Willis Hutchinson, dated 1883-84, and am just now getting to listing the final few. Based on a couple of (super sweet!) hand-drawn maps, I believe our Willis likely lived in Port Jefferson in Suffolk County, NY, on the North Shore of Long Island. Wilis’ name and the year 1883 appears on one page of the sketchook, which the last photo below details. Horses and boats were favorite subjects, as exemplified here (of all sizes!) with a mix of both on one side and the "Great Eastern" on the other. Very sweet.
6 7/8” x 4 1/2”, with drawings on both sides. Overall good antique condition with a little toning and smudging to the graphite here and there. Paper is not especially brittle.
