BURNE-JONES, Sir Edward Coley (1833-1898). Painter.
Autograph Letter Signed to his dwarf studio assistant Pendry, 1 page 8vo, Rottingdean, Brighton, no date. Instructing Pendry to put his watch, which he had left on the chest of drawers, safely away 'in a drawer of my table in the studio, for it would trouble me to lose it'.
According to Burne-Jones's biographer, Penelope Fitzgerald, Pendry 'ran errands, gave glasses of wine to the thirsty cast-makers and kept children in fits of laughter by pretending to be afraid of the dragons on the Chinese carpet'.
