Marginal sketches to 'The Poetry of the Period'

Marginal sketches to 'The Poetry of the Period', from an album of 60 caricature drawings; a discussion of the poems of Matthew Arnold and William Morris with caricature sketches of the two, mainly of Morris as an angel or cherub Graphite

The number of sketches that Ned did is actually rather overwhelming, but they show a fascinating side. Many of the sketchbooks were donated to the British Museum by May Morris in about 1939.
