Novello, Vincent, 1781-1861. Autograph letter signed, dated : [London], 22 November 1828, to George Gwilt, 1828 Nov. 22.

Autograph letter signed, dated : [London], 22 November 1828, to George Gwilt, 1828 Nov. 22.

Saying that he is about to publish a collection of "the masterly Cathedral Compositions of Purcell," that Shield, Crotch, J.B. Cramer, Thos. Adams, George Smart, Attwood, Jacob, and Stevens have all agreed to help, adding that he would like to find an authentic likeness of Purcell--the two best he has seen are an oil painting formerly owned by Dr. Burney and a drawing by Godfrey Kneller--, asking if Gwilt knows to whom the drawing was sold at Mr. Bartleman's sale, suggesting that it might still belong to Mr. Holloway, who made an engraving from it, etc.
