The story of Nell Gwyn, and the sayings of Charles the Second by Peter Cunningham( Book )

90 editions published between 1852 and 2012 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eleanor "Nell" Gwyn (or Gwynn or Gwynne) (2 February 1650 ? 14 November 1687) was a long-time mistress of King Charles II of England. Called "pretty, witty Nell" by Samuel Pepys, she has been regarded as a living embodiment of the spirit of Restoration England and has come to be considered a folk heroine, with a story echoing the rags-to-royalty tale of Cinderella. Elizabeth Howe, in The First English Actresses, says she was "the most famous Restoration actress of all time, possessed of an extraordinary comic talent.""--Wikipedia

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 145 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
