A very rare lithograph. 140 x 222mm (5½ x 8¾").
A view of the Parsonage House & Clergy Daughter's School, Casterton. The school was established in 1823 at Cowan Bridge by William Carus Wilson (1791-1859), for low-cost education of daughters of poorer members of the clergy; it was attended by the Bronte sisters. Charlotte Bronte featured the school in Jane Eyre as 'Lowood', and she based her character Robert Brocklehurst on Carus Wilson. The school was later moved to Casterton, where it continues to be an independent school.
