Descripción

Letter: 2pp., 8vo. In very good condition, on lightly-aged paper. Addressing his letter to 'Dear Sir Albert', Petingale thanks Richardson for his letter 'arising out of your visit to the Ealing Arts and Crafts Exhibition', which has encouraged Petingale to send him 'the latest number of "Miscellany", which is the contribution of the Literature Group to the Ealing Arts Club, and which my wife and myself have been editing for the last nine years'. He discusses a visit to Holy Cross Church, designed by Richardson. He has acquired a 'fine coloured print' of Greenford rectory, ,formerly in Gunnersbury Park Museum, showing the older building of which I believe hardly a trace remains.' He concludes with a comment which would have found favour with Richardson, who had done away with electricity at his Georgian mansion: 'The allusion to "handwriting" in your letter is a testamonial to the virtues of a quill-pen, which although out-moded, nevertheless keeps its respected place in the hand of the present writer.' Magazine: 31pp., 4to. In attractive card wraps. Full title: 'A Miscellany in Verse, Prose & Pictures by some Members of the Ealing Arts Club.' Inscribed on flyleaf 'To Sir Albert Richardson | with the compliments of | John Lawson Petingale'. In very good condition. Lightly-aged with rusty staples. With additional plates by Petingale, W. Pickford, M. Bywater, George Anderson, and a tinted illustration in text. The text also includes contributions by Petingale and his wife Irene F. Petingale. Also included is a copy of another issue of the magazine, a 'Commemorative Number' (no.22, 1969/70), published in 'our Jubilee Year'. Same format, and again in very good condition. This issue contains a poem by Irene Petingale, 'Is she not pure gold . . . ?' No copies of The Miscellany listed on COPAC, copies listed on WorldCat at HRC/Texas and a Canadian library.
