Mller was born at Bristol, the son of J. S. Mller, a Prussian from Danzig, curator of the Bristol museum. He first studied painting under James Baker Pyne.

Previous owner's armorial bookplate to the front pastedown, and binder's stamp to the verso of the front free endpaper. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
