ARNALD (George, 1763-1841, Landscape Painter)

Autograph Letter Signed to Edward Wedlake Brayley, 1773-1854, the topographer and antiquarian, saying he fears this letter "comes too late to be of any service to poor Dayes", Edward, 1763-1804, the water colourist and engraver, "as I suppose the book is in circulation", Dayes' 'Works ... containing an excursion through the Principal Parts of Derbyshire and Yorkshire', just published by his widow, Arnald having passed through York believes "it can no longer bear a Dispute with any unprejudiced persons" that whatever "the Main Arch of Ouse Bridge ... may have been originally, it is now circular!", or rather "two portions" of circles "intersecting thus" with a little drawing, "which you will find very accurately attended to in Mr. Dayes Sketch and is not lost in the engraving of Messrs Cooks", there is also a "Circular crown ... more modern than the rest", the same subject "in the Beautys &c ... is so erroneous ... [as to be] fabricated ... These practices will and really do injure the reputation of a work, far beyond what may be gain'd by employing persons Capable of such practices", he begs Brayley not to say where he is for the time being, and refers in a P.S. to the "very honourable mention in the St. James's Chronicle" of "the Picture of Syr Reginalde", 3 sides 4to., address on fourth side, Ambleside, 20th June
