This volume (5.5" x 6.75") contains 20 ink portraits of members of the New Jersey State Senate of 1876 and 4 illustrations of scenes from the senate's centennial session. E. S. Ellis presented this book to William J. Sewell, president of the New Jersey Senate. The individual portraits of senate members are organized alphabetically by the county each senator represented; Sewell, who represented Camden County, is the only member not individually drawn. The 4 additional illustrations depict an eagle holding the shield of the United States, Sewell calling the senate to order, a member reading the minutes, and a composite portrait of five individuals representing major newspapers.
