Abstract
  • IE TCD MS 3559 is a collection of 87 pencil drawings washed in colour of headlands and bays of America, the West Indies, Tenerife etc., with Dutch titles; they appear to be the work of a single artist, and were presumably intended as a navigational aid. Watermark like Heawood 1769. With pink leather spine and marbled paper boards. This volume of drawings was originally no. 9074 in the Fagel Library, bought in 1802 by Trinity College Dublin.
