His career was spent creating paintings for private commissions, for periodicals and books, and his talents were diverse, he worked in oils, watercolors, lithography and wood engraving. Birds and insects were his two main interests in life and his drawings and paintings were largely devoted to these two subjects. Frohawk became a member of the British Ornithologists' Union in 1895 and a Fellow of the Entomological Society in 1891 (electing him a Special Life Fellow in 1926). During his long career, over 1,000 of his drawings were reproduced in books about birds. In addition, he provided illustrations for the Field Magazine (1881 onward), the Encyclopedia Britannica (illustrations of birds and reptiles), the British Museum Catalogue of Fishes and Proceedings of the Zoological Society. 80 of the artist?s original watercolors of birds are in the collection of the Natural History Museum, London.

Three months before his home state of Virginia seceded, U.S. Naval Commander Arthur Sinclair writes to a Commander in the Navy. Complete Transcript U.S. Ship Pennsylvania Norfolk Jany 22. 1861.My dear Sir. I have nothing of any importance to communicate - only feel a desire to know how my esteemed Commander is getting on & whether your health has been entirely restored. Please inform me at your earliest convenience all about you & yours. As you will perceive I am in command of this ship, having been orderd at my own request, on the 15th. inst - I have just returned from Washington, whither I went in charge of the new steam sloop Pensacola. The Secretary received me with great kindness & was very complimentary. Poindexter is here with me as my executive - & desires to be remembered. Should you write Hitchcock present my regards. God bless you Yours truly as ever --- A. SinclairArthur Sinclair (1810-1865) was a Virginia native whose father served in the U.S. Navy during the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812, retiring as a Commodore. Sinclair was dismissed (effectually resigning) from the U.S. Navy on April 18, a day after Virginia seceded from the Union. He was then appointed a commander in the Confederate Navy on June 10, 1861. He commanded the C.S.S. Winslow during the Battle of Hatteras Inlet in August, 1861, and drowned during the foundering of the blockade runner Leila on January 14, 1865.Arthur's future grandson, Upton Sinclair, was a famous radical activist and writer of such books as The Jungle, an expose on the meatpacking industry. His biographer notes an old "favorite story in the Sinclair collection of traditional family tales . Lieutenant Commander Arthur Sinclair, and his old friend, fellow Virginian, and shipmate Captain David Farragut had stayed up and argued all night long in Sinclair's study, the day after Virginia had seceded. The next morning, Farragut had gone north, loyal to the Union. Sinclair, like [Robert E.] Lee, had been loyal to Virginia and the lost cause."ReferencesHarris, Leon. Upton Sinclair: American Rebel (New York, 1975), p. 15.

      Currier & Ives, New York 1861 - A magnificent Currier & Ives portrait of one of the premier yachts in the New York Yacht Club: the yacht that beat the "America" in her speed trials The Stevens brothers listed in the title were members of a prominent American family, their father had served in the American Revolution. John Cox Stevens was one of the founding members of the New York Yacht Club, the first Commodore and one of five sponsors of the "America", the yacht that went to England in 1851 and won the race thereafter known as the America's Cup Race. His brother Robert L. Stevens designed the "Maria", which beat the "America" during the series of speed trial races to Sandy Hook, prior to the latter's epoch-making trip to England. The "Maria" was one of the most beautiful yachts in an era of exceptionally beautiful boats: an icon amongst American yachts. It was estimated that the Stevens spent a total of $100,000 on experiments and alterations involving Maria in the 22 years that she was in the family. A 1914 article in the New York Times described her as "a scientific racing machine, the first of her kind" (cf. NYT, 17 May 1914). Conningham 6805; Gale 7360.

Having trained as a stonemason, Atkinson became an architect carrying out some highly accomplished commissions in the Manchester area. Around 1844 "inspired by Alexander von Humboldt's accounts of Siberia, Atkinson then moved to St Petersburg …There, in 1846, he abandoned architecture as a profession for the pursuits of an explorer and topographical artist. Between March and November 1847 he travelled to the Urals, the Kirgiz steppes, and Altai Mountains …Between 1848 and 1853 he travelled extensively in the Russian orient, gathering much geographical and geological information. During this time he produced over 500 water-colours of the landscapes and peoples, some of them 5 or 6 feet square …After his return to Britain, an exhibition of Atkinson's Siberian and Chinese Tartar scenes was held in 1856 at Colnaghi's Gallery, London. Some of these were lithographed and published in his narratives of his travels." (ODNB) He died in 1861, the Athenaeum describing him in their obituary as "the type of an artistic traveller, thin, lithe, and sinewy, with a wrist like a rock and an eye like a poet's; manner singularly gentle, and air which mingled entreaty with command."

Leather bookplate of John Stuart Groves on front pastedown of each volume. An excellent copy. Individually chemised and housed together in a quarter dark blue slipcase.The sequel to the most famous of all British school stories and the novel that firmly established the genre, Tom Brown's Schooldays.Laid into Volume I is an Autograph Letter Signed by Hughes to a Mr. Moran, dated "9 Old Square, Lin Inn, Jany 28/68." Written in black ink. One twelvemo page on a folded leaf. "I want copies of Bemis’s pamphlets & any other good papers official or otherwise on that side of the Alabama question which are not printed in our blue books—Can you lend me these for a week or two—Ever yours Tho. Hughes."Tipped to the half-title of Volume I is a Signed Note by Thomas Hughes, dated Chester, March 1883 [?], being a transcription of Arthur Hugh Clough’s poem, "Say Not the Struggle Nought Availeth" (with variations from the published version): "Say not the struggle nought availeth/The labour & the wounds are vain,/The enemy faints not nor faileth,/And as things have been, things remain./Though hopes were vain, fears may be liars;/Who knows but, by yon smoke concealed,/Our comrades chase e'en now the fliers,/E’en now possess the stricken field—/For tho’ the tired waves, idly breaking,/Seem here no tedious inch to gain,/Far back, through creek & inlet making,/Comes, silent flooding in, the main—/And not thro’ eastern windows only,/When daylight comes comes in the light./In front the sun climbs slow—how slowly!/But eastward, look, the land is bright./A H Clough.""British jurist, reformer, and novelist best known for Tom Brown’s School Days (1857). Hughes was educated at Rugby School from 1834 to 1842. His love for the great Rugby headmaster Thomas Arnold and for games and boyish high spirits are admirably captured in Tom Brown’s School Days. The book did much to create an enduring image of the typical public-school boy and to popularize the doctrine of ‘muscular Christianity.’ From 1842 to 1845 Hughes was at Oriel College, Oxford, and Tom Brown at Oxford (1861), a less-successful sequel, gives a picture of live there at the time. Hughes’s admiration for the religious reformer Frederick Denison Maurice led him to join the Christian Socialists and, in 1854, to become a founding member of the Working Men’s College, of which he was principal from 1872 to 1883. His simple, earnest approach to religion and his robust patriotism show plainly in his tracts A Layman’s Faith (1868) and The Manliness of Christ (1879)" (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).Sadleir 1234. Parrish, pp.120-1. Wolff 3331. [Attributes: First Edition]
