[Apsley House, Hyde Park Corner, London; residence of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington (1769 - 1852).]
[Various combinations of artists/lithographers, and printers.]
[London: P. & D. Colnaghi & Co. and J. Mitchell, 1853.]
Scarce set of nine tinted lithographs (only, of ten), from 'Apsley House and Walmer Castle' [by Richard Ford]; includes four double-page folding plates. Smallest sheet 280 x 330mm (11 x 13"); largest 410 x 530mm (16 x 20¾"). Some plates with light, mostly marginal, staining. Some tipped into album pages.
Published six months after the Iron Duke's death these fine views include the Piccadilly front of Apsley House, with figures in carriages, on horseback or walking past with the shadow of the statue erected on Constitution Hill in 1846; interiors such as the secretary's room and the picture gallery with walls hung from floor to ceiling with paintings and a table set for dining. Also a detail from a ceiling design. The artists are Thomas Shotter Boys (1803 - 1874), Joseph Nash (1808 - 1878), and Frank Dillon (1823 - 1909). Apsley House was originally designed and built by Robert Adam between 1771 and 1778 for Baron Apsley – from whom it takes its name. It passed to the Wellesley family in 1807, being first owned by Richard and then his younger brother Arthur Wellesley – the first Duke of Wellington. Wellington is most famous for defeating Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, but this was only the culmination of a brilliant military career, including strings of victories in India and later in Spain. He was also a major politician, rising from representing a small Irish constituency in 1790 to becoming Prime Minister in 1828. The current appearance of Apsley House is the result of alterations made by the Wellesley family, who twice extended the brick Adam house and encased it in stone. The Corinthian portico and two bays of the west wing were added in 1828. Perhaps more importantly, many rooms were redesigned to reflect the Duke of Wellington's rising status: Apsley House’s dazzling interiors are magnificent examples of the Regency style. They provided the perfect backdrop for entertaining, particularly at the annual Waterloo Banquets which commemorated the great victory of 1815.
