Notes

Édition des Aquarelles. Limited to 26 numbered copies for England and America. Lady Jackson (1824-91) was the wife of diplomat Sir George Jackson, known for accompanying Sir Charles Stuart to Germany and entering Paris with him in 1815, and for his efforts to abolish the slave trade. After his death she edited his papers for publication and then turned her hand to history and art, writing particularly on the French royal court and the literary and artistic culture of Paris.
