Lobe; series of 10 small black and white lithographs of Bonn, 5 engravings after B. Hundeshagen, published by F. Habicht of Drachenfels, Godesberger Schloss and the Botanische Garten. Most about 8 x 13cm, some smaller. At the other end of the end of the album there are 15 leaves mounted with dried plant specimens, ink captions giving location and date of collection, mostly from the Bonn region including Professor Brandis's garden, and Goethe's house in Weimar.

This visit was undertaken by Rev. and Mrs J.J. Taylor in 1835. The couple were obviously well versed in German culture and made a point of visiting the homes of German writers. A testament to the admiration which many English travellers of this period had for German thought.
