Scrapbook of Herbert Browne


Albums compiled by the architects Arthur Little and Herbert Browne documenting completed work for several clients.The majority of photographs in these albums were probably commissioned by the firm of Little and Browne to the photographic studios of William Clark (formerly of Soule Photograph Company, Boston) and T. E. Marr. Both photographers were active as "view photographers" working closely with Boston architects.It is important that users note the existence of related materials when using these albums. These consist of architectural plans, an album of furniture designs for specific clients, accounts cumulated by the firm's clients and the architectural library of Herbert Browne, housed as a separate unit within the Rare Book Collection."Book B" is lacking, though logic suggests it to have originally existed since there are Books C and D. We have instead assigned the title of "Book B" to a scrapbook belonging to, and presumed compiled by, Herbert Browne. This consists of clippings, plans, pencil sketches, and other fragments relating to American and European architecture, details, and furnishings and interiors.
