Architect (1880-1939), son of Sir Aston Webb, designer of Admiralty Arch, the Victoria Memorial, etc. All ten items very good. Five docketed and six bearing R.S.A. stamp. All ten signed 'Maurice E. Webb'. An interesting and important correspondence, mainly concerning the renovation of the R.S.A.'s Adelphi building. ITEM ONE (15 May 1924, one page, 12mo): He is writing on behalf of his father, who is 'not yet able to answer his letters himself', 'to thank your Council for the kind expression of sympathy with him in his accident [.] the doctors consider that he is making as good progress as can be expected in the circumstances, but it is a very slow and tedious illness for him'. ITEM TWO (26 June 1924, one page, quarto) is on the same subject. ITEM THREE (8 January 1926, one page, quarto): He has not heard further from Sir Frank Baines, but revises the estimate 'for the work on the lines of the enclosed sketch shewing the arch brought into the centre, which I think probably Sir George Sutton will like to see.' ITEMS FOUR to SEVEN (21 and 25 January, 27 February and 10 June 1926, all one page, 12mo) mainly concern the same subject. (Item seven: 'We cannot find an original Adams' figure, but this is a model by Mr. Walter Gilbert from some Adams' drawings.' [not present]) ITEM EIGHT (19 October 1926, one page, quarto) gives three prices, involving Messrs Dove Brothers, Messrs Jacksons and Messrs Bradford (the last 'very good people'). ITEM NINE (12 November 1926, one page, 12mo): 'As you know on the original drawing on the front of the Royal Society of Arts the title is in Latin | "SOCIETATIS AUTIUM DOMUS" | Shall we use this for the back or put it in English?' ITEM TEN (3 February 1927, one page, 12mo) discusses a meeting with 'the Westminster City Council's Surveyor at the Society of Arts this morning'. See also Aston Webb, #3873.
