Quick Reference

A bound and mounted collection of drawings, prints, or photographs. The word is sometimes included in the nomenclature for an otherwise unidentified artist who is associated with a particular album, for example the so-called Master of the Egmont Albums (active in the second half of the 16th century), so named after the albums of drawings by this artist put together in the early 18th century by the first Earl of Egmont.
