Memoirs of the Life of Anna Jameson, by her neice Gerardine Macpherson, hardcove (very good condition), likely first Amerian Edition, 1878


Perhaps best known in the US for "Winter Studies and Summer Rambles," an account of her travels in Canada and the USA,  and "Sacred Legendary Artthis," this biography of Anna Brownell Jameson (1794-1860) was written by her neice and includes excerpts from many of her letters.  


Anna Brownell Jameson (17 May 1794 – 17 March 1860) was the first Anglo-Irish art historian. Born in Ireland, she migrated to England at the age of four, becoming a well-known British writer and contributor to nineteenth-century thought on a range of subjects including early feminism, art history (particularly sacred art), travel, Shakespeare, poets, and German culture. Jameson was connected to some of the most prominent names of the period including Fanny Kemble, Elizabeth Barrett-Browning and Robert Browning, Harriet Martineau, Ottilie von Goethe (the daughter-in-law of Goethe), Lady Byron, Charles and Elizabeth Eastlake, and Barbara Leigh Smith Bodichon.
