Name: Wallace Mary Anne, Wallace Alfred Russel , Wallace Herbert Edward , Purland Theodosius , Townsend Miss , Ali , Neale , Moseley Henry Nottidge
Description: 36 proofs of illustrations for A R Wallace's autobiography "My Life" (London, Chapman & Hall, 1905) captioned in A. R. Wallace's and at least one other hand; incomplete set enclosed in an exercise-book cover; comprising: 17. Proof illustration of a small church in a landscape from drawing by William G Wallace near Llanbister in 1840, captioned in ink in A. R. Wallace's hand "'A Lonely Chapel" | pencil sketch by W.G.Wallace 1840." Place: Amazon Notes: Two portrait photographs of A. R. Wallace were transferred to more appropriates items or series. Proof pages approximately 23 cm x 14.5 cm. Reproduced in Wallace, Alfred Russel, "My Life" (London 1905). All fairly dirty on the edges with inky fingerprint marks. 24 proof sheets are approximately 23 cm x 14.5 cm, 12 approximately 23 cm x 17 cm. Most are on thick white paper without printed captions or numbers, three on thinner paper with printed text. Possibly from two or three proofs made on different dates? Both this file and WP6/8/21 contain proofs of illustrations from both vols 1 and 2 of "My Life", both incomplete. The two have not been merged because they appear to have been separated into two files by A. R. Wallace himself, though this is dubious and the reason not apparent.
