In Albin's notes to the reader he states "As for the paintings, they are all done from the life, with all the Exactness I could either with my own hand, or my daughters, whom I have taught to draw and paint after the life". Elizabeth was the first English woman recorded as a painter and delineator of birds.
Christine Jackson noted the location of known Albin watercolours in her work Dictionary of Bird Artists of the World: "two volumes of original drawings are preserved in Archbishop Marsh's Library in Dublin with 198 watercolours. The drawings from the Bradley Martin collection in the US were sold in 1989. A single volume of drawings was in the Chatsworth, Derbyshire collection" (Christine Jackson, Dictionary of Bird Artists of the World, p. 132).
