Lot Details
ALBUM—GREECE.
Album compiled by Julia Sophia Hammersley Wallace, containing watercolors of a "Mulatto of Algier," "Tomb of Sidi Mohammed el Hadj near Tangier" (en brunaille) and untitled sketch of Greek ladies both by W.M. Smith, a villa (en brunaille), a woman in black, "A Street in Rouen," a ruined temple with Greek natives, 12 ink or pencil sketches of paddle steamers, artillery, and the like, and several poems in manuscript, 4to, [1830s], period green calf gilt, rubbed, upper joint cracking.

Julia Wallace [c.1815-1900] was born in Montreal. In 1837 in Corfu she married Gilbert Buchanan, a Major General in the Royal Artillery. Most of the sketches in the present album are by one of the two and are obviously inspired by their travels in the Mediterranean. She spent the remainder of her life in Britain.
