Engraving 470 x 595mm Central crease as is normal for this engraving.
This Cross is universally acknowledged to be one of the most elegant buildings of the kind existing in England. Its form is octangular, having a strong butment at each angle, surmounted with pinnacles. On each of its faces is an entrance through a pointed arch, ornamented with crockets and a finial. Above this, on four of its sides, is a tablet, to commemorate its reparation in the reign of Charles II. Above each tablet is a dial, exhibiting the hour to each of the three principal streets; the fourth being excluded from this advantage by standing at an angle. In the centre is a large circular column, the basement of which forms a seat: into this column is inserted a number of groinings, which, spreading from the centre, form the roof beautifully moulded. The central column appears to continue through the roof, and is supported without by eight flying buttresses, which rest on the several corners of the building.

E. Buckton A.R.E.
[n.d. c.1950] Issued by the Print Collector's Club.
Etching. 247 x 356mm. 9¾ x 14".
Eveleen Buckton (1872-1962) was born in Haslemere, Surrey. She was pupil of Sir Frank Short, and her etchings, many of which are of landscapes, are in his style. In 1931 an exhibition of her work was held at the Arlington Gallery in Bond Str. London, where the The Times stated that although her outlook on pictorial work was romantic, she had a sculptor's instinct. Eveleen also designed a stainglass window for Haslemere Church, depicting the Holy Grail, as part of the Tennyson Memorial. She died in Hampstead in 1962, leaving her collection of drawings, etchings, watercolours and sculptures to the British Museum.

Rare sepia-tinted lithograph heightened in white, small margins, image 230 x 325mm. 9 x 12¾".
St Mary's Church, Felpham, West Sussex. William Blake, introduced to the village by his friend William Hayley, lived in Felpham for three years, writing his epic poem Milton in Felpham. The cottage where he lived is depicted in the illustrations for the poem. Of the village he wrote: "Away to sweet Felpham for heaven is there:/ The Ladder of Angels descends through the air/ On the turrett its spiral does softly descend/ Through the village it winds, at my cot it does end". The publisher of this print, Richard Holmden, is listed in the Post Office Directory for 1851 as a bookseller, stationer, and owner of circulating library in Bognor High Street, as well as watchmaker and jeweller.

Copper engraving. 355 x 489mm. 14 x 19¼". Centre fold.
A plan of Folkington Manor from "Britannia Illustrata". These plans by Johannes Kip and Leonard Knyff are significant for providing reliable records of the development of the formal English garden in the Dutch-French style. The vast lands associated with these houses are now part of villages which as in this case carry the name of the manor house. Built during the 14th century for Viscount Monckton, it was bought in about 1650 by Sir William Thomas (1641-1706), of West Dean with the adjoining manor of Wootton. Rebuilt in 1843.
