Hand-colored, ink and pencil drawings of 18th- and 19th-century coaches and carriages. The drawings depict cabriolets, chariots, curricles, landaus, phaetons, and other types of coaches. Four of the drawings contain a brief description and price list on the verso. They were possibly used as samples for prospective customers by an 18th- or early 19th-century English coachmaker. Several of the drawings contain the signature of London coach maker Samuel Hobson. The collection also includes three drawings executed by John Hatchett.
