Bayard (1796-1868) and his wife Mary on the tragic death of their son Charles in the Bay of Naples. Charles, only 21 years old at his death, was struck and killed by debris from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius on February 9, 1850, while serving as a Midshipman in the US Navy. He was buried in the English Cemetary at Naples. Clay writes from a position of weary acquaintance of the tragedy of losing a child, having outlived seven of his eleven children. The letter reads, in part: "I received today a letter from Mr. Bayard and one also from Mrs. Jackson communicating the melancholy event which has happened in Naples ? I can fully appreciate your feelings and your distress, alas!".

        A List of Printed Service Books, according to the ancient uses of the Anglican Church

      London: Joseph Masters, 1850. PRINTED ON VELLUM, apparently the only copy thus. 16 leaves. 4to (21.7 x 13.4 cm). Contemporary gilt-panelled vellum binding. Beautiful copy, with blind stamp of previous owner A.J.V. Radford, and bookseller's tickets of Herbert Reichner, Lathrop C. Harper Inc, and H.P. Kraus. Printed on Vellum Following the manuscript tradition, liturgical printing in both the Catholic and Anglican churches frequently employed vellum as well as paper. D.B. Updike writes that economic considerations were also a factor: "As early printed books were nothing more than a mechanical imitation of manuscripts ... even in printed missals vellum was often used for the canon of the Mass, since the pages devoted to this were subject to wear by constant handling" (D.B. Updike, "Some Notes on Liturgical Printing," The Dolphin, no. 2 (1935), pp. 208-16). That being the case, it isn't surprising that this rare bibliography should have a vellum issue; yet no other vellum copy has been recorded.

Fernando Quaglia (1780-1823), an Italian painter of portraits, graphic artist, and sculptor of funeral monuments, was active in the first years of the nineteenth century, connected mainly with the court of the Empress Josephine. His other publication was entitled: Le père Lachaise ou Recueil de dessins des principaux monuments de ce cimetière, Paris 1854. Some occasional spotting throughout.

        Bound album of 34 drawings (20 by Corbould, 14 by Unwins)

      England, 1850. Pen and ink, watercolor, and wash drawings mounted; one signed by Corbould, 3 signed by Unwins. Double-matted and handsomely bound on hinges in full brown morocco. A few drawings show minor foxing, but overall beautifully preserved. Pen and ink, watercolor, and wash drawings mounted; one signed by Corbould, 3 signed by Unwins. The English illustrator HENRY CORBOULD (1787-1844), studied at the Royal Academy (with among others, Fuseli) and he quickly developed a taste for neo-classical historical painting. He soon concentrated "his efforts ? on perfecting a delicate, rather feminine, neo-classical style which suited the purposes of refined Regency book illustration. During the remainder of his career he was 'extensively employed by publishers to make drawings for engravings, and the number of his designs, which adorn many books amount to several hundreds' (J. Britton, The autobiography of ?, 2.172). This is also reflected in those works he continued to send to the Royal Academy exhibition, which were predominantly compositions of a sentimental and literary genre, commissioned to illustrate the novels of Walter Scott or the poetry of Byron and Crabbe. As was the case with J. F. Dove's edition of Fanny Burney's Cecilia, or, Memoirs of an Heiress (1825), many of Corbould's illustrations were turned into steel-engravings by his cousin Charles Heath; in other instances they were reproduced in fashionable media such as lithography and stipple engraving ?" (ODNB).The 20 small Corbould drawings in this album (one of which is signed), are typical of his book work: his portrait of William Shenstone, possibly for Samuel Johnson's LIVES OF THE POETS; the design for the engraved title-page of "THE GRACES, OR LITERARY SOUVENIR ?London | Printed for Hurst and Robinson, 1824"; an illustration for Hugh Kelly's, MEMOIRS OF A MAGDALEN ("Sir Robt Harold coldly endeavouring to console Miss Mildmay | Vol. 1, p. 48"); and numerous illustrations for various adventures and romances, as yet to be identified.Corbould's contemporary, THOMAS UWINS (1782-1857), also was able to enter the Royal Academy Schools, where he exhibited miniature portraits, and contributed illustrations to Rudolf Ackermann's Westminster Abbey (1812), Oxford University (1814), Cambridge University (1815), and Public Schools (1816). Eventually, Uwins evolved to larger forms and while living for several years in Rome, Venice, and Naples, began to paint in larger forms in oil. His illustration work includes Shakespeare, Virgil, Horace, King Arthur and the Round Table, Robinson Crusoe, etc. The 14 exquisite drawings displayed here amply display his skill and mastery of the small, watercolor illustration.
