Abstract:

The collection comprises seven letters. Scharf informs a printer that he is sending several blocks and "a batch of Kugler illustrations" (1849 May 25). He asks Chambers Hall to support his election to membership in the Athenaeum Club (1854 Jan. 30). Explains to J.Y. Ackerman, the secretary to the Society of Antiquaries, that recurring inflammation of his eyes prevented him from completing the plates for the Archaeologia, as well as other commissions from "the most eminent publishers" (1856 Nov. 19; on "Exhibition of Art Treasures of the United Kingdom" letterhead). Explains to Jas Crowdy the procedures for having his picture by Francis Cotes authenticated (1881 Jan. 6). Describes to John Murray his research for the edition of Thomas Gray's poems which includes the print of Gray's portrait made after the original painting in Murray's possession. He is sending the book (1894 May 21). Sends Murray the copy of a letter from Colliss of Strood who, reading the discussion about Gray's portrait in Athenaeum issues, has remembered his own edition of the poems, which has a different title page with Gray's portrait, and copied it in his letter (1894 July 31). This letter is also included in the collection (1894 June 20).
