Memoir of George Edmund Street, R.A. 1824-1881.
London, John Murray 1888.
8vo. (4) + 441 + (1)pp, portrait frontispiece (mounted Woodburytype photo), one other plate with Woodburytype photo of Street. Publisher’s quarter cloth, a little bumped at head and foot of spine.Visiting card of Mrs George Pierrepont Taylor, “formerly Amy Street”, pasted to front endpaper, with ink presentation inscription from her, and her ink address, 112 Farnham Avenue, Toronto (she was a daughter of Hon.W.P.R.Street, a Judge of the Ontario High Court).
First edition of this full biographical study of Street by his son. There was a 1969 reprint of this by an American publisher, but copies of the reprint seem to have vanished from sight, and the original edition is in any case much more desirable. The present copy, formerly in the possession of a distant Street relative resident in Toronto, Canada, is the best copy that we have had through our hands in recent years.
