Album of manuscript verse by Caroline de Crespigny, Thomas Medwin and other contemporary English and German poets, with some original drawings and watercolours

Caroline de Crespigny’s album is made up predominantly of original autograph verse by herself, Thomas Medwin and the German poets they encountered and translated. Tipped in, pinned or loosely inserted are also original drawings and watercolours, together with cut-outs and press cuttings, and one music manuscript. As far as it has been possible to establish, her own verses are unpublished. A number of other pieces remain unidentified.
