Historical Reviews


A selection of reviews are presented here with illustrations from the project:


Jameson, Anna. "Introduction" to The decorations of the garden-pavilion in the grounds of Buckingham palace. Ed. Ludwig Gru╠łner. London: John Murray, 1846. 6-10. As the introduction to this significant volume and as a printed pamphlet distributed to journalists visiting the pavilion, Jameson's essay has had an outsize influence on the pavilion's historiography.


"A Visit to the Garden Pavilion in the Grounds of Buckingham Palace." Chambers's Edinburgh Journal. Saturday, August 30, 1845. The Chambers's review responds directly to the Athenaeum's skepticism, praising instead the "fairy palace" of the pavilion and borrowing substantially from Jameson's narrative.
