JOHN GIBSON LOCKHART
The Scottish author and political writer addresses an envelope to the Honorable Mrs. Erskine in black ink
Autograph envelope unsigned. 4x3 envelope addressed to: "The Honorable Mrs. Erskine/ 1 Cumberland Place/ Regent's Park". In bottom margin in unknown hand: "Mr. Lockhart's handwriting". John Gibson Lockhart (1794-1854) was a Scottish writer and author, best known for his definitive biography of Sir Walter Scott titled Life of Sir Walter Scott (1837-1838), which is considered the second most admirable in the English language (after Boswell's Life of Johnson). A scholar of classics, Lockhart first came into notice while writing for the Scottish Tory publication Blackwood's Magazine, famed for its aggressive articles and brilliant criticism of the Scottish Whig stronghold and the Romantic intellectual movement. In 1818, Lockhart met Sir Walter Scott, and went on to marry his eldest daughter Sofia two years later. He worked as editor of the Quarterly Review from 1825 until 1853, as well as wrote novels such as Valerius (1821), Reginald Dalton (1823) and Matthew Wald (1824) and served as editor for the famed Murray's Family Library (1829). Normal mailing folds. Creased throughout. Toned. Worn and soiled. Cut-out square in upper right corner where stamp was placed. Ink stamp on verso. Wax stamp on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
