The life of Sir David Wilkie; with his journals, tours, and critical remarks on works of art; and a selection from his correspondence by Allan Cunningham( Book )

8 editions published in 1843 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir David Wilkie (1785-1841) is often called the first truly international British artist. This three-volume biography, published in 1843, two years after Wilkie's sudden death while on a tour of the Mediterranean, and containing extracts from his journals and letters, remains an indispensable source for his life and works. Born in Scotland, Wilkie became a student at the Royal Academy in 1805, and in the following years the uncompromising realism of his scenes from rural life made his name known and attracted royal patronage: he was appointed 'the King's Limner in Scotland' by George IV. This work was compiled by his friend, the poet and critic Allan Cunningham (1784-1842), who himself died shortly after correcting the proofs: it was seen through the press by his son. Volume 3 continues the narrative from 1828, through Wilkie's appointment as the King's Painter in Ordinary in 1830, to his early death

London past and present : its history, associations, and traditions by Henry B Wheatley( Book )

15 editions published between 1891 and 2011 in English and German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bibliographer and editor Henry Benjamin Wheatley (1838-1917) produced a prodigious number of books and articles on a wide range of topics, literary, historical, bibliographical and artistic. He worked for many years for the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Arts, was a founder member of the Library Association, and produced an edition of Pepys' diary which was not superseded until the 1970s. London Past and Present was published in 1891, expanding and updating Peter Cunningham's Handbook of London of 1849. It is a three-volume topographical and historical dictionary of London places and landmarks, and the people who lived there. Based on historical, literary and architectural sources, it reveals many fascinating details as it traces the development of the metropolis from medieval times to the time of writing. Nineteenth-century London was experiencing rapid change, and this work preserves the memory of many buildings now lost
