A lovely collection of thirty-six small, well executed watercolors depicting Western and Pacific landscapes. Several images are identifiable as coastal California, Mount Rainier, Maroon Lake in Colorado, and Monument Valley. The album is dedicated almost entirely to mountain scenes. The works were painted by Raymond Spencer, and most of the watercolors are signed "R.S." or "R. Spencer." From their look and feel, probably executed in the 1920s.
