Notes

Trees and landscapes of Kings Weston drawn in 1834. The artist, Miss S A Young, produced some visually beautiful depictions of the trees on the estate whilst she was recuperating from illness in nearby Clifton. The lithographs of sketches were brought together after they having been submitted to several artists of this place, at whose suggestion the present publication was entered into”.

Rare. We have only been able to trace two examples selling at auction: Bloomsbury 2009 and Parke-Bernet 1949.
