Albums of caricatures by John A Hipkins, wood-engraver, with scrap-books containing material collected by or associated with him.
Scope and Contents
The volumes, which have been arranged and provided with biographical notes and lists of contents by John A Hipkins's sister, Miss Edith J Hipkins, the painter, illustrate the cultivated life of London in the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth. Since Hipkins himself was deaf, there is much material relating to the artistic and other activities of the deaf.
