        MAP OF THE CITY AND VICINITY OF BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS

      1852 - VERY LARGE, SCARCE MAP OF 1852 BOSTON SIDNEY, F. G. [i.e. J. C.] MAP OF THE CITY AND VICINITY OF BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS. [Philadelphia: R. P. Smith for] Boston: J. B. Shields, 1852. First Edition. A full color folding map, 40 3/4" x 41 1/2", comprised of 24 linen-backed panels that fold into a contemporary quarto-size case, 11 3/4"x 13 3/4". Map is lightly soiled yet still bright. There is some shallow, irregular loss along the vertical centerfold of the map and just at the intersection of a couple of other folds where the linen backing has either split or has suffered small loss (Roxbury effected the most). The backing has some dampstaining that does not bleed through to the front of map. The orginal folding case has worn and rubbed contemporary marbled boards, with the original printed paper label on the front. The folder has been inexpertly rebacked with black leather. In this edition the surveyor's name was incorrectly printed as "F. G. Sidney". In the subsequent 1853 edition it was corrected. Sidney was a surveyor and draftsman for John Jay Smith and his son Robert Pearsall Smith of Philadelphia. It appears to have been printed by Smith for J. B. Shields of Boston. This very accurate and detailed map shows roads, railroads, buildings and property owners in towns surrounding Boston at a time of great change in the city's topographical history. It is a rare map.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Weimar, 20. X. 1852.

      1852. 4 SS. 4to. "Hochverehrter Herr! Ich habe auf meine unwandelbare Verehrung und Liebe zu Ihnen, im Vertrauen zu Ihrer Zusage, Weimar und seinen Angehörigen zugethan bleiben zu wollen, einen Plan gebaut; vielmehr die Absicht eines mir persönlich unbekannten Kunstfreundes, Drobisch in Leipzig, unterstützen zu müssen geglaubt. Derselbe hat ein kleines Werk von mir, das ich an Professor Lobe dahin schickte, zufällig gesehen und so lieb gewonnen, daß er es der nächsten Todtenfeier Mozarts (5ten December) zu Grunde legen möchte. Bereits hat er dazu bei dem Regißeur der Leibziger Bühne mit Erfolg Schritte gethan. Ich wurde, in Folge davon, mit der Annahme des Manuscripts zur Darstellung - überrascht. Gleichzeitig sollte es an den Collegen H. Forst nach Prag unverzüglich geschickt werden. Auch in München, Salzburg und selbst in Wien hat der unermüdliche, mir wie gesagt, unbekannte Freund empfehlende Einleitungen gemacht. In Wien suchte er zu diesem Zwecke Herrn D. Laube auf, traf ihn aber nicht. Dagegen stimmte er, wie er mir schrieb, die Professoren am Conservatorium günstig dafür. - Ich glaubte deshalb ein Exemplar der kleinen melodramatischen Scene 'Da Ponte, der Dichter u. Freund Mozarts' selbst dort einschicken zu müssen und eventuell - Ihre mächtige bürgende - hier vielleicht einzige - Kunst dabei in Anspruch zu nehmen [...]". - Spuren waag- und senkrechter Mittenfaltung. Am unteren Rand der 1. Seite alte Sammlungsstempel (Graf Victor Wimpffen und La Roche).

        Mönster för marmormålning (Patterns of faux marbling painting). Part one (all published). Stockholm, Gustaf Chelius, 1895.

      Large folio. (39 x 54 cm). Pp. (4). With ten lithographed plates of different kinds of marbles. Text leaves with some marginal tears and some plates with a few spots in margins and some plates with tears at the outer margins but overall a very good copy. Original half cloth on grey boards, cotton ties, lightly rubbed. Title in German ("Marmormalereien") printed in black on upper cover. (We have not been able to find any other copy with German titled wrappers). First and only edition of this scarce book, the first of its kind in Sweden. Per Malmén (1852-1926) studied at the Académie Bertillion in Paris in the 1870s and became a prominent faux marbling painter. According to rumours, he conducted several marbleizing works at the Louvre but it has not been proven mainly because the artists did not sign their works at that time. This impressive manual was used at the Technical School in Stockholm where Malmén taught for many years. The plates depict several kinds of marbles titled: Vert de Mer; Jaune de Sienne; Chateau-Landon, Rance; St. Anne; Marbre de Kolmården, Granit; Portor; Bleu Fleurl, Rance and; Breche Violette. The text explains methods of creating the various stone patterns. Ref.: Fredrik Thörnqvist: "Marmoristen & Målarmästaren Per Malmén" 2011, 1895.

        Official Programme of the Funeral Procession of the Late Field Marshal The Duke of Wellington to Saint Paul's Cathedral on Thursday 18th November 1852.

      1852 - Folio, bifolium (174 x 464mm), upper cover with Royal Crest and engraved vignette archectonic memorial to Wellington above a quotation by Disraeli within a black border. The lower cover has Eulogies to Wellington from The Earl of Derby, the Marquis of Lansdowne, Lord Brougham, Lord John Russell, Benjamin Disraeli and from the Daily Press. With a horizontal folding crease, a few closed tears and chipping to edges, generally a very good copy of a fragile ephemeron. First edition listing the members of the Funeral Procession from St James's Park to St. Paul's Cathedral, starting with Six Battalions of Infantry and ending with the Carriages of the Queen and Royal Family and "Troops to close the Procession". An interesting souvenir of Wellington's Funeral Procession, one of several produced to mark the event. Sidney, Wells & Co. were tea and coffee merchants. We presume that they had this souvenir printed to hand out to clients and guests who watched the Funeral Procession from their premises at 8 Ludgate Hill, on the approach to St Paul's Cathedral. The Duke of Wellington’s funeral in November 1852 was one of the most spectacular ever seen in England. The procession to St Paul’s Cathedral was watched by a crowd estimated at a million and a half people. [Attributes: First Edition]

Publisher's printed blue wrappers are lacking from parts 1,2, 10, 13, 14, 15, 18 and 19-20, parts 3 and 7 are lacking the printed rear wrappers. All these wrappers have been substituted with plain, blue wrappers which all seem to be contemporary with and of the same colour and quality as the printed wrappers with no obvious sign of having been replaced at a later point, but rather with the impression of being a contemporary variant binding. Parts 1,3,4, 7, 14, 15, 18, 19-20 are lacking the advertisements at the front as well as the back. Part 2 lacks the "notice of removal slip", part 5 lacks the "Crochet cotton" slip, part 9 lacks the "Household Words" slip as well as pages 1-6 of the commercials at the back of the issue, part 10 lacks pages 1-2 and 15-16 of the advertisements at the front, other advertisements differ from the ones mentioned by Hatton & Cleaver.

Part 10 lacks plate 17 ("Visitors at the Shooting Gallery"), parts 19-20 lack the plates 37-40. Half-title, title and dedication leaves are bound with part 1 rather than with part 19-20 as described by Hatton & Cleaver, as are also the preface, contents and list of plates. One sheet loose (page 1 of the advertisements at the front) of part 2) and with ca 5 cm tear, covers as well as interiors generally well preserved throughout apart from a few chips and tears and some slight, occasional soiling; plates are heavily foxed throughout, though. First edition of Bleak House, issued in 20 numbers bound in 19 monthly parts, parts 19-20 published jointly as a doublenumber. This set with some of the printed covers substituted with plain, blue wrappers and quite a few other deviations from the collation in Hatton & Cleavers bibliography (p. 275-304), see specification. (Hatton & Cleaver, p. 275-304).

        ORGANIZATION, ACTS AND REGULATIONS OF THE U.S. LAND COMMISSIONERS FOR CALIFORNIA; WITH THE OPINIONS OF COMMISSIONERS HALL AND WILSON ON THE REGULATION TO ALLOW ADVERSE CLAIMANTS TO INTERVENE IN THE ORIGINAL CASES; AND COMMISSIONER THORNTON'S DISSENTING FROM THAT REGULATION. ALSO A LIST OF LAND TITLES PRESENTED TO DATE

      San Francisco: Monson, Whitton & Co., 1852. 43pp. Modern half calf and plain paper boards. Text lightly age- toned. Extensive early pencil notes (see below). Very good. The Thomas W. Streeter copy, with his bookplate on the front pastedown and his pencil notes on the front free endpaper. A very significant publication, indicating that from the earliest days the United States government would contest the validity of claims to land in California that had been granted before statehood. California came under American control during the Mexican-American War and attained statehood in 1850. One of the most vexing legal questions in the 19th-century history of the state was the status of lands that had been granted by the former Spanish and Mexican governors. These "ranchos" at times amounted to thousands of acres, and questions of their ownership were quite contentious, despite the provisions of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo to respect all Mexican land titles. In 1851 the U.S. Congress created a three-person commission to consider the validity of land claims, each of which would ultimately be challenged by the U.S. government. The list of land title cases at the end of this volume, the first to have been printed, shows that 247 cases were presented to the courts in the year after the Commission was created. "This pamphlet states the first official acts of the land commissioners. The list of land claims at the end gives the names of the attorneys, on which a former owner has penciled in many instances the final action of the commissioners" - Streeter. Of the three original commissioners Harry I. Thornton was a frequent upholder of the validity of the claims against the interests of the U.S. government, and was removed from the Commission in 1853. Not in Cohen or Sabin. This copy was bought at the Streeter sale in 1968 by Warren Howell, who asked $1000 for it shortly thereafter. We are unable to locate any other copies on the market since.

He divided the distance to be covered into heats of four miles each, changing his horse at the conclusion of each heat, and he accomplished his task one hour and eighteen minutes within the time specified, having ridden, allowing for stoppages, at the rate of twenty-six miles an hour." ( DNB ).James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day... [In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.146)Lane British Racing Prints p.149; cf. Selway James Pollard 1792-1867 p.45 (1831 issue); Siltzer p.220.

        Manuscript Letter - Second-Anglo Burmese War Content

      Rangoon, 1852. Port of Rangoon (Yangon), 12 January 1852. Manuscript signed letter by American missionary Eugenio Kincaid, describing the event that started the Second Anglo-Burmese War, as it unfolded. 8vo. 4 pages. Double leaf measuring approximately 19,5 x 12,5 cm. Very good condition, a very rare firsthand contemporary account. Amidst the thick of it, Kincaid provides a vivid au-courant description of a fateful conflict where pride superseded reason, of an aloof and deceptive dynastic Burmese king and his menacing officers, of Commodore Lambert's wanton naval confrontation which ultimately led to the Second Anglo-Burmese War, and finally, of the chaotic exodus of Rangoon civilians. In a letter to a colleague in New York, some ten weeks prior to the Second Anglo-Burmese War (5 April 1852 - 20 January 1853), Kincaid's account was penned whilst seeking refuge onboard the HMS Duchess of Argyle, a British merchant ship, anchored at the mouth of the Rangoon River and at the time being used by his and others' families when the King of Ava, Pagan Min (1846-1852), threatened to destroy the city altogether. The King of Ava, Pagan Min (1846-1852) who had made claims of extortion against British merchants, and Commodore George Lambert (1796-1869), who effected a retaliatory port blockade at Rangoon, were the parties directly at odds in this confrontation, with Lord Dalhousie playing a significant role from India. The incident described herein is that which in fact caused the war to erupt. The letter also mentions Dr. John Dawson, a physician and missionary who was connected to Kincaid, together having been sent in 1850 by the American Baptist Missionary Union "to commence a mission at Ava or some other leading place in the Kingdom of Burmah." They landed at Maulmain [Mawlamyine] early in 1851, and in March had settled temporarily at Rangoon, waiting for an opportunity to go to Ava. They were initially under close monitoring of the Burmese governor who forbade them to distribute books or visit with the locals, going as far as torturing or imprisoning those who tried to associate with the Americans. In May however, favour seemed to come their way when they were granted rights by the king. A medical dispensary was soon opened among other good works. The mission would soon be interrupted by the war however. Kincaid writes here that he and Dawson saved the ladies (their wives) and children who were living at the missionary house in Rangoon, then returned to secure some of their personal effects, and were fortunate to reach safety themselves, in the dramatic incident of January 1852 in the city of Rangoon. The recipient of the letter is Stephen William Taylor, a president and philosophy professor of a New York university, which Kincaid helped raised funds for only a few years prior. Excerpts from the letter: "12 January 1852... we are reffugees from Rangoon... all the hostile attitude of Burmah..." "Commodore Lambert with a Frigate & 2 armed steamers, came into Rangoon, bringing a letter from the Gov. Genl. of India, for the King of Ava... also with one for the King's Ministers - the substance of the letters were the outrages committed on British subjects in Rangoon & demanding the immediate removal of the Gov. on the basis of an amicable adjustment of all difficulties." "35 days... on the 1st of Jan. [1852].. one day before the time was up - the answers came - the Commodore thought them satisfactory & he despatched a steamer at once to Calcutta to convey the joyful intelligence to the Gov. Genl of India." "Our families had lived on board the Duchess of Argylle a large English merchant ship since the 5th of Dec. as the Gov. had repeatedly threatened to burn the city & to let loose some 2000 soldiers..." "We had put all our books, papers & most valuable clothing in boxes & taken them to a fire proof building - also 250 dollars worth of philosophical apparatus & all Dr. Dawson's surgical instruments..." "The letters from King & Court of Ava were so favorable to an amicable adjustment that all alarm subsided & on the 2nd of Jan. our families returned on shore, the old Gov deposed and ordered up to Ava. So it was given out, & the Deputy Governors rode through the city on elephants, assuring all the foreigners..." "All however were not satisfied, as they knew the character & policy of the court of Ava " "On the 3rd the Royal Commissioner or Viceroy made his public entry into the City with great pomp - and the same day issued a hostile order... forbidding all intercourse between the shore & the shipping - about 30 or 35 ships were there taking in cargo." "On the 6th Com. Lambert sent a deputation of 4 officers with Edwards as interpreter with a letter to the Viceroy - the officers were not allowed to enter..." "The Com. had remained some 40 days waiting the arrival of this Commissioner & now he had been grossly insulted - Between 3 & 4 PM a message came from the Flagship calling British merchants & others claiming British protection to come on board.... 2 hours to leave the city... omens of evil thickened every moment." "All the ships in Port were getting up their anchors. Dr. Dawson and I hastened back to our house, through streets already crowded with Moguls, Musselmen, Armenians, Hindoos, & a few English, all hurrying to take reffuge on board the ships. " "Armed Burmans were rushing here & there & Burman officers riding about by turns & threatening & persuading..." "When we reached our house the table was set for dinner & the dinner just coming on - so we left it... ladies and children... we set off to get them away - the streets were crowded... they had to pass through a large body of armed men - they reached a wharf in safety - the Steamer Proserpine had run close to the wharf & the Court had sent 8 or 10 man-of-war full of armed seamen, & the Frigates launched to convey off the Ladies, & children..." "Dr. D. & I returned... to get a few clothes... night... hurried away, leaving the main street & passed through narrow lanes to avoid the rushing crowds... How many hundreds in the morning looked upon their own houses, full of property... lost." "Some 6 or 7 hundred foreigners fled - about 70 have been seized & are now in Burma prisons..." "On the 10th a fearful battle was fought - the Burmans fired upon the Frigate & Steamers from 2 stockades - the war ships then oppened their fire with terrible effect - in 2 hours the works were destroyed and Burmans (5 or 6 thousand) had fled." "... In great haste - Yours affectionately, Eugenio Kincaid." End Excerpts. Eugenio Kincaid (1797-1883) - the author of the above described letter - was an American Baptist missionary who worked for twenty-seven years in Burma (Myanmar), on two separate missions. During his second expedition, the Second Burma War took place. Eugenio Kincaid had arrived in Moulmein in the early part of 1851 and proceeded to Rangoon. The mission work was interrupted by the arrival of a British frigate and four armed steamers. They demanded redress of grievances on behalf of the East India Company. Barbara Kincaid took refuge on a British merchant ship as she was a British subject and Eugenio Kincaid was asked, because of his knowledge of Burmese, to accompany the British delegation to the provincial governor. Against Rev Kincaid strong objection, the leader of the British delegation insisted on riding their horses into the governor's compound, which was considered an insult according to Burmese custom. The governor refused to meet the delegation. British ships blockaded the port and the Second Anglo-Burmese War had begun. By the end of 1852, the whole of Lower Burma was in British hands. Stephen William Taylor (1791-1856) - the recipient of the letter - was the second president 1851-1855 of Madison University (now Colgate University) in Hamilton, New York, and also professor of Natural and Moral Philosophy there. Together with Dr. William Shadrach, Dr. Eugenio Kincaid, raised $1000,000 throughout the State of New York by July 1849, for the construction of the college and dormitories, which was completed in 1851. Dr. John Dawson was a medical missionary in British Burma, eventually leaving his missionary work to become proprietor and editor of the "Rangoon Times" for four years before retiring in America in 1873 with his wife and children. Admiral Sir George Robert Lambert GCB (1796-1869) was a Royal Navy officer who went on to be Commander-in-Chief, The Nore. In 1852, in HMS Fox, he was dispatched to Burma to deal with some infringements of the Treaty of Yandabo. Lambert, described by Lord Dalhousie, Governor-General of India, in a private letter as the "combustible commodore", eventually provoked a naval confrontation in questionable circumstances by blockading the port of Rangoon and thus started the Second Anglo-Burmese War which ended in the British annexing the province of Pegu and renaming it Lower Burma. Pagan Min (1811-1880) was the ninth king of the Konbaung dynasty of Burma. His reign began on 17 November 1846 and ended on 18 February 1853 when he was abdicated. The Second Anglo-Burmese War broke out during the reign of Pagan Min. In 1851 the governor of Pegu, Maung Ok, charged the captains of two British merchant ships with murder, embezzlement, and evasion of custom duties. He fined them 500 rupees before being allowed to return to Kolkata. After receiving their complaints, Lord Dalhousie, the governor-general of British India, sent Commodore George Lambert to the king requesting a compensation of £920 and the dismissal of Maung Ok. Pagan complied by replacing Maung Ok. But on 6 January 1852, when the new governor declined to meet with a British delegation because Lambert had seized the Burmese Royal ship, all British subjects were evacuated and the coast of Rangoon was blockaded. Within days, British warships were bombarding Yangon. On 7 February, Pagan wrote Dalhousie to protest against the acts of aggression. On 13 February, Dalhousie sent an ultimatum to the king, demanding an equivalent of £100,000 as compensation for "having had to prepare for war", to be paid by 1 April. The ultimatum expired with no reply, and a few days later, British troops invaded the Burmese territory. Britain annexed the province of Pegu in December. . Very Good.

Blank lower 40% of lower leaf cut away, just touching the initials, a few original ink smudges, otherwise very good. Addressed to "Dear Sir," but in all probability to his publishers Chapman & Hall: "A certain Mr. Lenthall, a descendant of the old Cromwellian speaker so-called, has discovered that in many of the Cromwell letters which I copied from Carey's book there are frequent errors...." He notes that Lenthall has offered to compare the texts with the originals at no cost, and advises the wisdom of taking him up on that offer. Toward that end, Carlyle instructs the recipient to send to Lenthall a copy of the 1846 SUPPLEMENT, and provides details for accomplishing that end.

        Uncle Tom's Cabin Life Among the Lowly

      Here are Vols I and II of the first editions of Stowe's epic novel regarding slavery's cruelty, and helped occasion The Civil War. True First Editions are scarce because they are so integral to American History everyone wants to own the first published copies! Also scarce because the binding wears such that copies are scarce. The book can be purchased cheaply but the first copies printed are scarce and very expensive. This First copy was found but covers so badly worn, we chose to replace them with leather, so the covers are very new, but these two volumes inside are: 40 and 50 thousandth printings of the Firrst Edition (from the title page), which also shows the date: 1852. See our images. They are not strickly mates, but since Stowe never altered the writing in any way, they will serve as mates and qualify as genuine FIRST EDITION copies. Pages are quite soiled but readable. Book contains original 8 illustrations by Baker Smith, counting the two frontispiece, which you can view in images provided. You may return any book for full rfund.

        "Die Tapferkeit des Genies". Eigenh. Manuskript (Fragment) mit Namenszug ("M. M. von Weber"). O. O. u. D.

      1852. 2 SS. auf Faltbogen. Folio. Beginn des Manuskripts zu Webers Erzählung "Die Tapferkeit des Genies" über den Eisenbahnpionier George Stephenson: "Mit Recht messen die Engländer nur demjenigen die vollen Ehren eines Erfinders zu, der einen fruchtbringenden Gedanken nicht allein empfing, sondern ihn auch verkörperte, nutzbar in das Leben führte. Mehr aber als Erfinder, zum Schöpfer einer neuen Kulturepoche wird der, aus dessen Hirn und Hand eine große Erfindung vollendet, als brauchbares Werkzeug der Civilisation hervorging [...]". - Der wenige Monate nach der Uraufführung des "Freischütz" geborene (und nach dem Titelhelden benannte) Sohn des Komponisten Carl Maria von Weber wirkte während seines Studiums als Konstrukteur in der Borsig'schen Lokomotivfabrik, wurde später Lokomotivführer und übernahm anschließend die Leitung verschiedener Eisenbahngesellschaften. 1852 trat er in den Sächsischen Staatsdienst ein, 1870-78 war er als Hofrat in Wien tätig, bevor er ins preußische Handelsministerium berufen wurde. Seine im technischen Milieu angesidelten Novellen waren beim zeitgenössischen Publikum auch wegen seines gesellschaftlichen und sozialen Engagements sehr beliebt. - Auf Trägerpapier montiert.

        ORGANIZATION, ACTS AND REGULATIONS OF THE U.S. LAND COMMISSIONERS FOR CALIFORNIA; WITH THE OPINIONS OF COMMISSIONERS HALL AND WILSON ON THE REGULATION TO ALLOW ADVERSE CLAIMANTS TO INTERVENE IN THE ORIGINAL CASES; AND COMMISSIONER THORNTON'S DISSENTING FROM THAT REGULATION. ALSO A LIST OF LAND TITLES PRESENTED TO DATE

      San Francisco: Monson, Whitton & Co., 1852. 43pp. Modern half calf and plain paper boards. Text lightly age- toned. Extensive early pencil notes (see below). Very good. The Thomas W. Streeter copy, with his bookplate on the front pastedown and his pencil notes on the front free endpaper. A very significant publication, indicating that from the earliest days the United States government would contest the validity of claims to land in California that had been granted before statehood. California came under American control during the Mexican-American War and attained statehood in 1850. One of the most vexing legal questions in the 19th-century history of the state was the status of lands that had been granted by the former Spanish and Mexican governors. These "ranchos" at times amounted to thousands of acres, and questions of their ownership were quite contentious, despite the provisions of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo to respect all Mexican land titles. In 1851 the U.S. Congress created a three-person commission to consider the validity of land claims, each of which would ultimately be challenged by the U.S. government. The list of land title cases at the end of this volume, the first to have been printed, shows that 247 cases were presented to the courts in the year after the Commission was created. "This pamphlet states the first official acts of the land commissioners. The list of land claims at the end gives the names of the attorneys, on which a former owner has penciled in many instances the final action of the commissioners" - Streeter. Of the three original commissioners Harry I. Thornton was a frequent upholder of the validity of the claims against the interests of the U.S. government, and was removed from the Commission in 1853. Not in Cohen or Sabin. This copy was bought at the Streeter sale in 1968 by Warren Howell, who asked $1000 for it shortly thereafter. We are unable to locate any other copies on the market since. STREETER SALE 2725 (this copy). COWAN, p.374. GREENWOOD 364.

        Excellent Content on Gibson's Then Current Six Sculpture Projects

      Rome, 1 April 1852. Manuscript signed letter by celebrated Welsh sculptor John Gibson, in which he discusses the progress of his sculpture of England's former Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel, Queen Victoria in the House of Parliament, Phaeton with his chariot, and other notable sculptures of the same period. 8vo. Double leaf measuring approximately 21 x 27 cm, with integral address, postmarked in Rome. Excellent content, easily legible, with rare original signature. John Gibson RA (1790-1866) was a Welsh Neoclassical sculptor who studied in Rome under Canova. Highly respected for his refined work in monumental and portrait statuary, many of his marbles and casts are currently on display at the Royal Academy. His most prized and exquisite pieces are preserved in the National Museum Wales, Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster, the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, etc. In this letter, John Gibson mentions no less than six of his then current sculpting projects, three of which are among his most important works, two of which have personal affiliations, and one which is mentioned rather ambiguously. Gibson addresses a female nurse or care-giver whom he had met at a hospital in Bagni di Lucca, Tuscany, where he went for rest and reprieve with the aid of the healing thermal baths. Gibson begins by describing his brother's funerary monument, which he had just finished sculpting. His brother Benjamin Gibson (1811-1851) had lived with him in Rome and in Bagni di Lucca for fourteen years. Benjamin was a sculptor and antiquary, a classical scholar of some repute having contributed several monographs to English antiquarian publications. He was buried at the Anglican Cemetery, Bagni di Lucca, Italy. The three most significant statues mentioned are: 1) Now situated in the north transept of Westminster Abbey, a larger than life-size white marble statue to former Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel. 2) Queen Victoria Supported by Justice and Clemency in the Houses of Parliament, his finest work in those representing postures of dignity and repose, currently held at the Palace of Westminster, Prince's Chamber. 3) Made for the collection of Lord Fitzwilliam at Wentworth Woodhouse, a magnificent bas-relief of Phaeton driving to the right in his chariot harnessed with four horses. [Earl Charles William Wentworth-Fitzwilliam (1786-1857), 5th Earl Fitzwilliam] According to this correspondence, in the summer of 1852 he worked on a piece for Mrs. Eliza Emily Huskisson. Further research is warranted to ascertain which sculpture he is referring to. Previously, she had commissioned Gibson on two separate occasions to make statues of her late husband, statesman, MP and financier, William Huskisson. The first one, following his death in 1830, was completed in 1833. She commissioned Gibson for a second marble statue in his honour, to be made for the Customs House. It was instead placed at the Royal Exchange, London, and is now in Pimlico Gardens. Excerpts from the letter: "After my return to Rome to soon began the large model for the statue of Sir R. Peel which has been finished 2 weeks ago & numbers of our people came to see it, also came Mr. Lawrence Peel [MP and politician] & his wife Lady Jane. Both of them were very much pleased...shortly it will be going on in marble." "I have also finished my model of a basso relievo representing Phaeton driving the chariot of the sun, the horses are getting very wild & he beginning to fear. This work is for Lord Fitzwilliam..." "I have also finished a bust in marble of his daughter Lady Alberta" [Albreda Elizabeth Wentworth Fitzwilliam 1829-1891]. "Rome has been very crowded... the place is kept very quiet by the French Army. The good conduct of the French troops is admired by people of all nations who come here." "Mrs [Eliza Emily] Huskisson has decided my fate for the summer..." [widow of William Huskisson (1770-1830) British statesman, MP and financier] "... in the beginning of October next when I shall begin the large model of the Queen's statue for the New Parliament House."
