One page letter entirely in the hand of and signed by English architect George Gilbert Scott. Written to Mrs. Fitzgerald on his "20, Spring Gardens, London S.W." letterhead and dated July 13 1863, it reads "My dear Madam, I beg to enter.for the congregation of the Chapel at Wellington College. I fear it is too late for me, but I have been out for some 2 years or would have sent it before. I have the honor.my dear madam.[signed] Geo: Gilbert Scott." Some of the words are not legible, and it seems likely that he had a late suggestion for a change.

Prominent in the Gothic Revival, Scott designed many public structures. Director of a vast amount of Gothic restoration work, beginning with renovations of Ely Cathedral (1847), including Westminster Abbey (upon the North Front Chapter House), and many othe cathedrals and churches.

Descripción Not published, London, 1874. Unbound. Estado de conservación: Very good+ condition. No edition. Two page letter entirely in the hand of and signed by English architect George Gilbert Scott. Written to a German correspondent in Hamburg on his "31, late 20, Spring Gardens, London S.W." letterhead and dated December 24th 1874, it reads "My dear Sir, I thank you sincerely for your very kind letter. I confess I feel pained at the exclusive counsel taken by the Senate and Bugershaft, after my long connection with your city, after having won in the open competition of more generous days. They did not act without knowledge, for I had written to the Senate, three months beforehand, the most rigorously worded letter I was able to pen, expressing my own views on the question. With many thanks, and begging you to present my very kind remembrances to Mr. Lindley, I remain, my dear Sir, your very faithful Servant [signed] Geo: Gilbert Scott."

Descripción Not published, London, 1850. Unbound. Estado de conservación: Very good+ condition. First Edition. Three page letter written and signed by English architect George Gilbert Scott. Written to Rev. Edwin Baines? Dated August 10th, 1850, it reads "My dear Sir, I ought to have apologized for sending an imperfect drawing of the roof. I found when I can to refer to my tracing or your plan that I did not know its' scale so that I might have got quite wrong. I was also puzzled as to fitting it to the apse. N Lomen? your Builder should send me the plan or what he prefers in this ???? I will make any suggestions which occur to me. I confess I am not partial to a gold coloured glazing. I think however the majority of the "Cathedral" plan is much too cold. I have however seen the Cath[edral[ of a warmer green which is much better I think. I obtained the specimen I saw from Mr. Wailes of Newcastle. Perhaps the best way is to get a large number of the carvers and to select from among them ?? ??? wjocj seems most pleasing. Here the yellow kind, you would not like. I remain my obedient yours faithfully [signed] Geo: Gilbert Scott." Some of the words are not legible but it is clear that Scott is providing reccomenation for materials selection for a Cathedral renovation or construction.
