An important house that entertained, over the years, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and most of the notable personages of the day. It is stated that The Duke of Buccleuch “when he died in 1884 was by far the wealthiest man in England”. The house appears to have been demolished sometime after 1937. The gardens are now a public park more information on the history of the house and gardens can be found at https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1001551


The three views that were on this printing plate, this print, Claremont and Temples of Philae are amongst the hardest to find of Baxter’s small views. The colouration from prints on this plate are different to most others, rather more pastel. I feel that is because these prints were early small views and one of the few of this series to be printed from a steel plate and wood blocks before he moved over to metal electrotype plates for his colour blocks

 

When in the pocket book under the print is engraved “Baxters Patent Oil Printing, 11, Northampton Square"; and on the right "From a Painting by S. Fisher,"
