Catalogue of the Pictures of the Late Mr Gainsborough
A (handwritten) bound catalogue of the Pictures of the late Mr Gainsborough "intended to be exhibited at his late Dwelling House in Pall Mall of which notice will be given in the Public Papers and which are To be sold by Private Contract, 1789". The conditions of sale, and the price, lot number, description, and dimensions of each picture is recorded.
The front cover reads "Inscribed by Mr Wood[s?] to Mr Agnew and by him to the firms library".
The catalogue appears to be a mid to late nineteenth century copy of the 1789 original.
