Clippings from New Orleans newspapers, particularly the DAILY PICAYUNE, a few notes, and four letters. Most clippings concern the sale of art works, especially auction sales. Letters also concern the sale of paintings and are from Samuel Putnman Avery, D. Alfredo Hitter (?), 1890, and two unidentified correspondents. The scrapbook was probably kept by New Orleans art dealer Charles Galvani in 1840s-1850s, and later by collector and publisher Armand Hawkins, late nineteenth century.
