An album of watercolours and gouaches by an Englishperson depicting a decade of Grand Tour of voyages in the Far East and trips in Europe (namely Southern India, Mt. Sinai, Cape Guardafui in Somalia, the Isle of Man, views of Scotland, and a series of views of the Swiss Alps and the French Riviera. 1869-1881.

The first sequence is from a voyage from India to Scotland, which took place in 1869-1870 and started in southern India. The earliest watercolours, dated the 27th October 1869, show views of Tellicherry (Thalassery) and Cannonore (Kannur) on the Malabar coast of south-west India.

In May 1870 the artist was on his/her voyage to Europe via the Red Sea, which is illustrated with a view of a sunrise over Mt. Horeb (Sinai) and two views of Cape Guardafui in Somalia. One of the captions noted that this voyage was made aboard the S.S. Hooghly, a vessel of the renowned French maritime company Messagerie Impériale, which was founded in 1851 and specialized in voyages from France to India, Ceylon and South-East Asia through the Suez Canal. This voyage was a very early one through the Suez Canal as the canal had only been completed in November 1869.

The album then contains views from the summer of 1870 including a nice panorama of Tivoli, across the Italian Campagna (June) and a whole series of views of north-western England and Scotland, painted in August: sea landscapes of the Isle of Man and the Island of Eigg from Roshven; Kirkcudbright from the Senwick Shore; a view of the Loch Katrine on the Ellens Isle; a picture of hotel at Patterdale with mount Helvellyn in the background; and extensive manuscript description of the artist’s activities there. Then there are four views of Cape Comorin (Kanyakumari), the southernmost tip of India, all dated the 1st of November, and finally a view of Vizagapatam (Visakhapatnam) on the Indian east coast (12th of November), which ends the sequence on the voyage back to India. These previous sequences report 3 different voyages.

The following 4th and 5th voyages date back to 1875-1876 and contains two "Italian" sketches: a chapel of San Giovanni Battista near San Remo and the Gulf of La Spezia (both from 1875), and a series of twelve nice large drawings of the Swiss Alps (all from 1876) including views of Les Diablerets; Mount Pilatus from Lucerne (July); Niesen Mountain "from our window at Oberhofen" (June); "The Eiger, Mönch and the Jüngfrau from Oberhofen on lake of Thun" (June); "The Stockhorn from our window at Oberhofen" (June); several watercolours of Lake Geneva and the Château de Chillon (August); panoramas of Mont Blanc "from Morges" and "Dent de Jaman, Rochers de Naye and Doldenhorn" (September).

Later drawings represent the 6th, 7th and 8th trips to the French and Spanish Riviera - views of Menton (April 1878), Pyrenees and coast of Spain/France, Biarritz (May 1878), Hyeres (1880), and Cannes (two views, both 1881).

Overall a very interesting collection of views by a voyager and an artist.
