Description:
7 Fitzroy Square, 5 June 1854. 1 page 4 x 3½ inches, in good condition, minor blemishes only. Gustav Friedrich Waagen (1794–1868), German art historian. A pamphlet on the brothers Van Eyck led to his appointment to the directorship of the newly founded Berlin Museum in 1832. The result of a journey to London and Paris was an important publication in three volumes, Kunstwerke und Künstler in England und Paris (Berlin, 1837-1839), which became the basis for his more important The Treasures of Art in Great Britain, translated by Elizabeth Eastlake, (4 vols, London, 1854 and 1857). This remains a key source for the provenance of paintings then in England.

Undated. 4 x 8 inches, in good condition. An uncommon autograph. Thomas Fletcher Waghorn (1800–1850), postal pioneer who developed a new route from Great Britain to India. He set up an agency in Cornhill, London, for conveying post—and passengers—to India via Egypt. Between 1835 and 1837 he lived among Arabs in the desert and laid the foundations for the overland route across the desert from Cairo to Suez. This involved building rest-houses and supplying guides, boats, horses and carriages for travellers. Later Waghorn turned his attention to speeding the post in Europe, through the new railway system. Charles Roach Smith (1807-90), antiquary and archaeologist.
