One page letter entirely in the hand of and signed by English architect Anthony Salvin. Dated August 24th, 1874, it reads "Dear Sir, with reference to you inquiry about Cholmondeley Castle. I believe the additions were made from designs by Sir Robert Smirke. I am dear sir, yours truly [signed] A. Salvin." Smirke added towers for 2nd Marquess of Cholmondeley in 1829. Although written, it is unclear who Salvin is replying to in this letter. Included is an undated two-page manuscript note, quite possibly written by Salvin (it apears to be signed "Salvin" at end) in 1849; the difference of 25 years would explain the moderate difference in handwriting which shows much similarity. This note appears to be a dedication for the completion of St. Mary's, started 1842. This is a mock-Gothic chapel near Arley Hall in Cheshire and built for Rowland E. Egerton-Warburton (1804-1891). Included is a mid-19th century engraving of St. Mary's. Salvin came from a Durham family, and went to London, where he became a pupil of John Nash. He then started his own practice which lasted for some 60 years. He became an expert on medieval fortifications, building and/or altering over 73 country houses. He did much restoration work on many castles including Windsor Castle and the Jewel House at the Tower of London. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1836, became vice-president in 1839, and in 1863 the Institue conferred its gold medal on him. Autograph, Manuscript.
