Labeled on the spine "Vol. 1 1824". Comprises sketches from Anna Margaret Carr's Grand Tour, in France and Switzerland. The sketches begin on 22 August 1824 near Montreuil. Carr traveled for five weeks from Paris to Florence (first going north-east through Reims via Soissons, then south through Geneva via Dijon and Poligny, and finally along the northern shore of Lake Geneva through Lausanne). The first volume ends on 8 September 1824 at Saint Maurice.
A continuation of the previous sketchbook, labeled on the spine "II Vol 1824". Carr's Grand Tour continues on 9 Sept 1824 at Tourtemagne (Turtmann, Switzerland). She crosses through Simplon Pass in early September and moves southeast towards Como, south to Genoa, and spends the last week of September traveling east along the Mediterranean, with sketches concentrated in La Spezia, Livorno, Pisa, and Florence.
The collection comprises ten original sketchbooks, albums, and scrapbooks compiled by Mary Leighton and her children, 1824-1860.
