Collection of eight F.C. Terry Lettersheets
Sydney and Melbourne,: Sands & Kenny, 1853.. Collection of eight unused lettersheets, quarto, each 4 pp. with engraved vignette; each sheet watermarked Sands & Kenny, all but two with a stamp of R. Clark, publisher, on verso of vignette (with no show-through to the image side); a fine set in a folding cloth case. Collection of eight unused lettersheets engraved by F.C. Terry.Frederic Terry (1825-69) was one of the better landscape artists working in Sydney during the mid-nineteenth century. Influenced by Martens, his work was included in the Paris Exhibition of 1855, the first showing of Australian pictures in Paris.This selection of engraved lettersheets uses the fine oval engravings produced by Terry for his Australian Keepsake, which was published by Sands & Kenny in 1855. Sadly, due to an engraver's error in London, Terry's name was printed as "Fleury" on each of the thirty-eight engraved views. Fortunately on this selection of lettersheets his name is correctly spelt.The collection comprises the following views: "Sydney Cove from Fort Macquarie"; "Government House from the Botanical Gardens"; "Newcastle from Nobby"; "North Head from Vaucluse"; "Double Bay from South Head Road"; "The Nobbies from Newcastle"; "Entrance to Sydney Harbour, North Head seen from the Flagstaff"; "Paramatta [sic] River from Fort Phillip".Lettersheets of this period are particularly rare in such fine and unused condition.
