About this Item: London: John Murray 1848, 1848. Contemporary full leather boards with gilt design to the front board and gilt design and titles to the spine. Prize inscription to the front end paper stating that this volume was a prize from the Worcester Government School of Design, signed by the President of the school in 1853. The tan leather is clean, but there is a touch of rubbing. A chip to the top edge of the spine has resulted in a touch of loss. There is particularly rubbing to the rear panel with loss of some surface. Internally clean and tidy, but with mild foxing to the pages and plates. Worcester Government School of Design was founded in 1851. In 1894 a school of Science and Technology was added. It later became the Worcestershire College of Technology, and today is part of the "Heart of Worcestershire College." This is almost certainly a prize for James Hadley the potter (18371903) who went on to be a principal modeller for Royal Worcester, later founding Hadley and Sons. described by John Sandon as "probably the finest English modeller of all time" viii, 1-396 pp. Seller Inventory # 1676

About this Item: No Binding. Condition: Very Good. Two autograph letters signed to Lady Eastlake about Prince Albert and the Fine Arts Commission: 8pp. 8vo, [London] (31 Onslow Square) and Brighton, 30 March-15 April 1867. The first letter sometime torn in half and roughly repaired. "It is important I should have a personal interview with you. I am engaged on a life of the late Prince Consort for the Queen, and it seemed to me that as Sir Charles Eastlake was much in Communication with the Prince on the Subject of the Fine Arts generally, & more particularly in Regard to the Fine Arts Commission, he had probably left Memoranda . . ." Are there any? He is going to Windsor Castle on Tuesday, and would like to be able to report to Her Majesty. Two weeks later he thanks Lady Eastlake for the "Extracts" she has sent, which are "most interesting & valuable". He is "quite sure there need be no delicacy, in letting the Queen see what is said of the Prince's little Germanisms". He has promised to send her the extracts as "she has so intense a pleasure in all that bears upon this subject". Will Lady Eastlake please continue with her selections? The painter Charles Lock Eastlake (1793-1865) was appointed Secretary of the Fine Art Commission on its foundation in 1841, under Prince Albert as President; he held the additional posts of Keeper of the National Gallery, 1843-47, and first Director, from 1855, President of the Royal Academy, from 1850, and first President of the Royal Photographic Society, 1853-55. In 1850 he was knighted; the year before he had married Elizabeth Rigby (1809-1893), an accomplished writer as well as hostess whose memoir of her husband prefaced the posthumous volume of his Contributions to the Literature of the Fine Arts (1870). Theodore Martin (1816-1909) had been recommended to Queen Victoria by Sir Arthur Helps for the task of writing the biography of Prince Albert, who had died in 1861; she gave him her go-ahead in November 1866. The Life of His Royal Highness the Prince Consort was published to acclaim in five volumes in 1875-80. Martin was appointed CB in 1878, KCB in 1880 and KCVO in 1898. From the collection of Jonathan Gili; bought from Henry Bristow, 1981. Inscribed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # TM00056
