Sketches about Kurrah Mannickpore.
Sketches about Kurrah Mannickpore. by Lieu.t G. Abbott, 15th Reg.t Nat. Inf.y, in the Service of the Honourable East India Company.
[London, Colnagi & Son, 1831.]
10 tinted lithographs (of 11) on india, lacking all text. Each c. 280 x 380mm, 11 x 15". With another lithograph by Abbott from a different series. Some foxing.
A scarce series of views around Manekpore in Gujarat, India, lithographed by Nicholson, with the title by Gauci. The missing plate is apparently the dedication. According to the introduction, not present, this work was published for the benefit of Abbott's widowed mother and younger siblings, "now in England after a long residence in India", issued with the permission of the East India Company. The List of Subscribers (also lacking) lists 150 names suggesting this work is very rare: certainly it is not listed in Abbey Travel. We have not been able to trace the source of the extra plate, 'View Taken from the Top of the Breach in the Long Necked Bastion, Looking towards the Interior of the Fort. Bhurtpoore" (Bharatpur), lithographed by Templeton after Abbott.

[Sir Henry Raeburn.]
[Sir Henry Raeburn.]
Ipse pinx WN ft 1818.
Fine etching on india, platemark 270 x 225mm (10½ x 9"), very large margins. Fine proof impression, before 'No 3' added upper right.
Engraving from Sir Henry Raeburn's 1815 self-portrait in the Scottish National Gallery. Raeburn's career had deteriorated in the early years of the 19th century, and he hoped to improve his fortunes by moving from his native Scotland to London in 1810. He was elected as a full member of the Royal Academy in 1815 and sent in the self-portrait as his diploma picture, not knowing that portraits of members could not be accepted. As Duncan Thomson (DNB) writes: 'great effort had gone into the making of this Olympian image, for its high seriousness was how he [Raeburn] wished to be perceived in London. His disappointment must have been extreme. It was eventually replaced by the sentimental 'Boy with Rabbit', a portrait of his stepgrandson Henry Raeburn Inglis'. Etching by William Nicholson (1781-1844), portrait painter and etcher. In 1818 Nicholson began to publish a series entitled 'Portraits of distinguished living characters of Scotland, drawn and etched by William Nicholson from his portraits and those by other painters', which included the lettered state of this print.
For another print in Nicholson's series see ref. 16377.
