$a In the Rhymes Shee argues for national patronage of artists. The first edition had been issued earlier in the same year. The Rhymes were well received; and made their contribution to the climate of opinion which led to the founding of the British Institution in 1807.
A third edition was published in 1809; and was continued by Shee's Elements Of Art (1809).
$a A front endpaper is inscribed in ink, 'To Miss Timno, This little volume, is very respectfully presented, as a small tribute of esteem and friendship from her very faithful humble servant Martin Archer Shee - Cavendish Square December 2d 1805'.
The half-title is inscribed in ink, 'J. H. Smith Caradoc Lodge Church Stretton' and in pencil, 'Sir Martin Archer Shee President of the Royal Academy B.1770 D 1850 J.HS.' [This is probably in the hand of the artist John Homes Smith, Gilbert Stretton's grandfather.]
Bequeathed by G. B. Stretton, 1949.
