Footnotes

  • Crealock printed 4 portfolios of his drawings depicting his time in the Highlands of Scotland, these drawings were from his original sketchbooks, one of which Bonhams sold in 2016 for £30,000.

    The early portfolios were not reprinted and rarely appear for sale, only the two series of the Balnacnaan portfolio have appeared for sale on ABPC in the past 40 years, public libraries in UK hold a handful of copies of each title, not in the British Library.

    Loch Luichart is located near Garve, north west of Inverness in Ross-shire, the estate has been owned by the Leslie Melville family for the past 160 years.

    Provenance
    Sold by P.D. Malloch, Perth, November 1909, enclosed note from the vendor to instruct Malloch to 'reduce price say to £2.2 or £2.5, as you consider wisest, tho this is very reasonable indeed as it is so scarce & in nice condition too, still I know how cautious people are north of the Tweed!'. A further letter, dated 1926, from a Perth firm of solicitors, to Malloch, asking of 'a red skinned book containing a collection of Deer Stalking Sketches, but no letter press... the book would perhaps be slightly larger than a page of the Fishing Gazette and no thicker than half an inch' and if it was still available and for sale 'we think we might have a purchaser for it'.
