This collection brings together materials by members of the Good family of Hull, England, in the 1880s. This includes an exceptional Victorian scrap album of mounted, original watercolor portraits of family women and children with one leaf signed and one leaf initialed by the artist, Edith Good of Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire. The scrapbook is supplemented and enriched by nine leaves extracted from a planned scrap album by Edith Good's favorite brother, Frederick de Coninck Good, to which she contributed. Frederick Good's scrap album with its witty, narrative-rich lithograph and woodcut print ephemera done for family occasions was left unfinished because of his untimely death at age 34, from a self-inflicted gunshot (January 24, 1887). The artworks reflect and document the family's six generation history in Hull and three generations in Denmark. There are a total of 76 original works by Good family artists (47 watercolors (43 mounted), 16 drawings, 9 lithographs, and 4 woodcuts) + the embossed program for the 48th annual State Concert at Buckingham Palace celebrating Queen Victoria's reign.
