The note to D'Oyly's Behar Amateur Lithographic Scrap Book in Abbey's Travel (no, 446) mentions "a fat scrapbook in the Indian Office Library, containing a large number of mounted drawings by D'Oyly. … This volume has all the haphazard appearance of a personal or family scrapbook, but it carries on the front what appears to be a special title for the volume, a view incorporating the words 'Indian Scraps.'" It is possible, therefore, that either a very limited number of such scrapbooks were issued, each with its own unique contents, or that blank albums with the title Indian Scraps were published as scrapbooks to be filled by collectors. The present album is signed on the front free endpaper by George Ward, who owned and compiled the album and presumably is the artist responsible for the works here signed "G.W."
