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.

Glasgow, 23 April 1844. 2 pp. 8 x 5 inches, in good condition. Ralph Wardlaw (1779-1853), Scottish Congregational minister and theologian, slavery abolitionist. In May 1818 he travelled to London to preach one of the annual sermons on behalf of the London Missionary Society, which brought him acclaim from the English nonconformist community, and in September of that year he was granted a doctorate in divinity by Yale College in the United States. A long-standing opponent of slavery, Wardlaw was one of the founders of the Glasgow Anti-Slavery Society in 1823. He came to reject the moderate anti-slavery position that the abolition of slavery should be a gradual process. In November 1830 he delivered a powerful speech before the Glasgow Anti-Slavery Society, in which he demanded the immediate abolition of slavery.
