Watts, Thomas (1811-1869), undated

Autograph letter signed, to Florence Davenport Hill. British Museum, 11 December 1860, 3 pp. Thomas Watts was a close friend and colleague of Panizzi at the British Museum and one of the group who made the British Library what it is today: for many years he was responsible for the buying of books in modern foreign languages, and in the decade 1851-60 he estimated that he had personally ordered some 80,000 books in these fields. In 1857 he was appointed first superintendent of the new Reading Room. Here he thanks Florence Hill for her father's book Our Exemplars, comparing it favourably with Craik's Pursuit of Knowledge and Smiles's Self-Help. Hill's Our Exemplars, poor and rich, or biographical sketches of men and women was published with an imprint dated 1861, but this letter shows that it must have been available towards the end of 1860, when Watts was given a copy by the Hill family.
