Ludwig Metz took this sketchbook, dated from May to June 1840, with him on one of his journeys through Hessia. The regular inscriptions document the artist’s itinerary from Friedberg via Marburg and Wetter and on towards northern Hessia. With few exceptions, he drew accurate pencil drawings of architectures and landscapes. The various Gothic churches along his route seem to have particularly interested the architect Metz, as he studied their architectures, floor plans and the surrounding landscapes in detail, often from different perspectives.
