THOMAS ADDISON RICHARDS
Artist Thomas Addison Richards wrote this letter on National Academy of Design stationery in 1866 to an engraver about some drawings that he was going to publish.
Autograph letter signed "T. Addison Richards". Pencil notations in left corners in unknown hand. 1 page, 5x8, 1 sheet folded, on stationery of the National Academy of Design in New York City. April 23, 1866. In full:"Dear Mr. Richardson I have some drawings to make for Mr Jas Miller (publisher) which you are to engrave I believe. Mr Miller has authorized me to send to you for the blocks. Will you let me have them* (at the Academy) of the sizes of the scraps enclosed as soon as possible and oblige Yours truly". Footnoted: "from four blocks to be sent pretty well [illegible]". American artist and author Richards (1820-1900) was born in New York, but his family moved to Georgia in 1837. He rambled around Georgia and the rest of the South between 1838 and 1844, sketchbook and notebook in hand, and wrote illustrated travelogues of his journeys before settling in New York City to become a teacher. Richards' paintings and drawings are in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Georgia and Harvard University. He also wrote many articles and books during the 1850s, including an 1852 collection of short stories titled Tallulah and Jocasse, and was the editor of Appleton's Illustrated Hand-book of American Travel (1857), the first major travel guide for the United States and Canada. Lightly toned and creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
