About this Item

English architect whose most reknowned creation is the Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster), a massive project completed between 1840 and 1860. ALS, 2pp (recto and verso), 4½" X 7¼", Foley Place, London, 1841 May 5. Addressed to Mr. Eversfield. Very good. Mounting trace along leftmost ½" of first page, touching almost no text; couple of minor foxing spots. Interesting and cryptic financial matters: "I shall be glad to be informed when I may expect another remittance on account of the Sale of the Old Materials of [Bredperaton?] House and when it is likely you will forward to me a Marked Catalogue the Balance Sheet and the Balance. I am not sure whether I acknowledged the receipt of the first remittance of L 800." There was an auctioneer by the name of Eversfield active around this time in Kent County, but what Barry's connection may have been to an auction and what the "old Materials" may have been remains to be verified. Nicely penned in brown ink. A nice example. Bookseller Inventory # 28554
