Ashbee by Chauver; hand-coloured oval armorial for Havelock by G. Hardcastle for T. Robson; Major Alfred Edward Lawson Lowe (of Shirenewton Hall, Monmouthshire, and Castle Hedingham, Essex, to whom the album is believed to have passed from Peckitt); two designs, one seemingly for a member of the Lowe family.
