Decorated Family Record Books from the Valley of Virginia

Record #:
A group of new pictorial material has surfaced from the record books of the Bannan, Fries and Hobday families, all of which were drawn by an unidentified artist in Winchester, Virginia during the early nineteenth century. Stylistic patterns in the artist’s design and calligraphy indicate German influence from Virginia, Maryland, and the piedmont regions of North and South Carolina.
