1862 Died

  • 1862 Obituary - reproduced from the Builder [1]


Many of our readers will hear with regret of the death of Mr. Weale, of High Holborn, who has been for many years connected with architectural publications. Some remarkable "Statistical Notices of Works on the Fine and the Constructive Arts," circulated by Mr. Weale last year, and to which we drew attention at the time, showed that while his career had been a struggle, it was also a labour of love, and so had brought its delights. He had expended at his own risk in publications £209,502, and at the risk of authors, £29,695. On his admirable "Rudimentary Series" alone he had risked about £50,000. This, as we have heard from his lips more than once, has proved a very successful venture. His death took place on Thursday, the 18th inst., and resulted from congestion of the lungs."
