Lithograph on india paper laid to publisher's sheet with printed title; with letterpress explanation sheet, scarce. Folio, 385 x 235mm, 15¼ x 9¼". Slightly soiled; some nicks to extremities; generally good.
Architect William Railton's (d. 1877) design for a memorial obelisk to Sir Harry Burrard Neale, 2nd Bt (1765 - 1840), naval officer and politician. The text sheet explains that the model is the Great Obelisk at Thebes, Egypt, which he visited in 1824 - 25, and gives general dimensions. Railton's best known work is the Nelson memorial in Trafalgar Square, London (referred to in the text), his design for which was accepted after two competitions in 1839, and carried out in spite of strong opposition; the column itself was completed in 1843. A handsome obelisk was indeed erected to Neale's memory on Mount Pleasant, opposite the town of Lymington, Hampshire, of which he was lord of the manor, and which he had represented in parliament for forty years.
