Mount Ararat Lodge, Richmond, Surrey,Protestant, French & German Finishing Establishment for Young Ladies Under the Direction of Madame Philippart (successor to Miss Price) / Assisted by resident French, German & English Governesses & talented Professors [...] [parallel text in French]
Letterpress pamphlet, 270 x 220mm (10½ x 8½"). Crease through centre; scarce.
Promotional material for the ladies finishing school at Mount Ararat Lodge in Richmond, outlining terms, cost, courses offered and the ethos of the establishment, in separate French and English texts (of which the French is more detailed). The building is now demolished but its location is marked by the surviving Mount Ararat Road. We have been unable to find any reference to 'Madame Philippart' (although elsewhere she is listed as principal of 'Montague House' in Richmond), but Harriet E. Price (unmarried) is listed as governess of the property in 1851, hence our tentative dating.
