ELD 133 — Pencil sketches by William Simpson

18 tiny pencil sketches of men, horses, and two samovars. This draft sketches are not by ELD, but were taken by William Simpson. These drafts were later assembled to one larger sketch and published as an engraving in the ILN 1885/1, on p. 282.
Unlike the sketches ELD 001-107 this sketch was not photo-lithographed.
