Alison, Sir Archibald, advocate and historian (1792-1867). Autograph letter signed.

Possil House (Glasgow), 10. VII. 1848.

Alison's expansive multi-volume work "History of Europe from the Commencement of the French Revolution to the Restoration of the Bourbons" proved a huge commercial success, and 100,000 copies had been sold in the United States alone by 1848. It was translated into French, German, and even Arabic.

Some brownstaining, with collector's note to backing paper.
