Dickinson Bros: Publishers to The Queen, 144 New Bond Street, Feby. 2d. 1871.
Mixed-method engraving, 625 x 460mm. 24½ x 18". Some age toning to paper.
A characteristically sober-looking Queen Victoria (1819 - 1901), reigned 1837-1901. Massachusetts-born philanthropist George Peabody (1795 - 1869) was offered a baronetcy and the grand cross of the Bath by the Queen, both of which he declined. During Peabody's absence in America in 1869 the Prince of Wales unveiled a bronze statue of him by Story, erected on the east side of the Royal Exchange, and the city of London conferred its freedom upon him. Oxford University also made him a D.C.L. in 1867. After Lowes Cato Dickinson (1819 - 1908).
