Scope and Content Written on the flyleaf of the notebook is 'Book of Marble, Acroteria &c'. The notebook is dedicated to the study of architectural marbles, primarily acroteria, and how they are decorated. However, it also includes drawings of other objects, landscape views of Athens and a few inscriptions. Most of the drawings have been made on different papers and then glued to the notebook pages. Near the end of the notebook is a list of 'Angles' or compass-bearings and relational location information on sites in Greece.
Notes This corresponds to Woodward & Austin (1925) notebook (5).
