Description of Malta and Gozo
Shoults Ob 1838 B
Malta: M. Weiss
On 1 August 1878, Shoults married Elizabeth Katherine Ogle; he was 39; she was 36. Part of the Shoults Collection contains books that were not only owned by her, but also by her father, John Connell Ogle (1813-1871), a landscape and maritime painter. Ogle was a member of the Liverpool Water-colour Society, and former professor of drawing at the University, Corfu, which was the Ionian Academy, established by Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford (1766–1827), in 1824. This ‘biography’ on Malta and Gozo, an island of the Maltese archipelago, is by George Percy Badger (1815–1888), an Anglican missionary, whose expertise lay in churches of the East. The book was printed in Malta, and is signed and dated by Ogle, 1839.
