Autograph letter signed ("M Ar Shee"), one page, 4to, Cavendish Square, 25 May n.y. To an unidentified recipient, apparently concerning an unspecified engraving: ". . . The approbation of a gentleman so engaged in literary [illegible word] is highly flattering to one whose pretensions are of so humble a description as mine. I have also to request you will accept my thanks for the intended compliment in the inscription of one of your plates. I have only to say that I should regret for your sake if you do not select a person for this purpose whose name may do more honor to your work, & whose interest may be more adequate to advance it. . . ." Remains of prior mounting on verso; a little creased and soiled; good.

Sir Martin Archer Shee (1769-1850); Irish portrait painter, president of the Royal Academy. (Item ID: 19475)
