    Richard Morell Staigg: Original Art Sketchbook with Many Pencil Sketches Included. This 6.75" x 4.5" sketchbook contains over 25 original pencil sketches by Staigg, who was a miniature and genre painter in the mid-19th century. The sketches in this book range from landscapes to animals to human subjects, including a watercolor scene depicting a sailboat at sea. The sketches have been done on various card stock, paper, and even one of Staigg's business cards, which is affixed to one of the pages of the book. A sketch at the front of the pocket-sized sketchbook shows animals grazing near a large haystack; this particular sketch is signed in initials by Staigg and dated 1881, the year of his death. A remarkable collection of Staigg studies in various stages of completion.
