I enclose an order for the Exhibition in case you may like to see it. Yours truly, W.G. Rawlinson'. The invitation reads: 'Burlington Fine Arts Club. 17, Savile Row, W. February , 1886. The Members of the Burlington Fine Arts Club have the honour to invite [Mr Francis Harvey & Friends] to see a Collection now in the Writing Room of the Club, of Engravings and Drawing illustrative of the Drawings by J.M.W.

He published 'A Catalogue of Engraved Portraits of English & Foreign Celebrities: On Sale at Prices Affixed by Francis Harvey'. During his career he amassed two great collections of Rowlandson caricatures: one, containing 3,000 prints, came up for sale at Sotheby's in 1959 and was bought for the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art; the other, with 2,000 prints by Rowlandson and other caricaturists, formed the 'Auchincloss Bequest' to Yale University library.
