Illustrated london news 1874

Page 200 of the Illustrated news

Page 99 of the Illustrated news

142 year old print, Paper 385 x 270mm.  The London Illustrated news published 28 Feb 1874 - 200 London.  ARRIVAL OF THE EMPEROR OF AUSTRIA AT ST PETERSBURG - from a sketch by our special artist.


Paper slightly brown because of the aging process.  There is a folding mark from the near top right to a quarter bottom left of the page.  If you would frame the image and paste it down , the latter folding mark will not be visible.

 This is an antique print to add to your collection.


 I purchased this collection of very old original art and prints from an auction.  It is not always that one is so lucky to have the history written of the collection.  In the above photo Walter L. Gladstone of Court Hey, today Court Hey Park, Liverpool, U.K. purchased the art collection from the estate of R.R. Lockett on May 1907.  

You will find in Wikipedia that Court Hey can be traced back to 1783.  The grounds were acquired by Robertson Gladstone (1805 - 1875) and his son, Walter Longueville Gladstone (1846 - 1919) farmed there after his father .  Walter who purchased this set of artwork died unmarried at Prescott, Lancashire, England.  It states that the Court Hey estate remained in the hands of the Gladstone family.  After the death of Walter Longueville Gladstone in 1919, the estate was purchased  by J. Bibby and Sons (Joseph Bibby).  Recreation of the Park continued alongside a printing business from which Joseph Bibby printed his Bibby's Annuals. 

Walter L. Gladstone purchased the 1913 edition of Bibby's Annual and kept it is this leather folder.  Joseph Bibby purchased the Court Hey estate form Walter.  There is a connection of two or more people and the Bibby's Annual plays a role in their connection. 

This print of "The illustrated London News 1874" on sale here is part of the collection in this leather folder.  The new owner of the art collection, whoever that was, stored the collection in a safe place to preserve it.


This is the art collection I acquired from the auction.  The leather folder is more than 120 years old.  The zip still closes the folder should you want to.
