London. Charles Knight & Co., 1845.
First Edition. Very attractive 3/4 leather bound volume, 5 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches, marbled endpapers, corners lightly bumped, containing two volumes in one. Volume I contains 232 pp. Volume II contains 272 pp. Both volumes illustrated with full-page black and white portrait plates or illustrations of representative works of the artists discussed. A former owner has listed these artists on verso of each volume's title page. Volume one discusses 15 artists in 13 chapters. Volume II discusses 12 artists in as many chapters. Both volumes, as well as binding, in excellent clean condition, with issues noted. Overall, an attractive and remarkably well-preserved volume. There are very occasional light pencil notes in margins, suggesting that someone actually read, portions of at least, Mrs. Jameson’s Memoirs. Item #54104
