Olivier Archive. Vol. DCXCVI C (ff. ). Lady Hamilton’s attitudes (London; S. W. Fores; 1794). A slim volume of Emma Hamilton’s celebrated poses in the style of classical statuary, decribed on the half-title as ‘Drawings faithfully copied from nature at Naples and … dedicated to … Sir William Hamilton … by … Frederick Rehberg … MDCCXCIV [i.e. 1794]. There are no marks of ownership with the exception of a bookseller’s coded price marking on the upper left corner of the verso of the front cover, with the date 28/2/04. There is no evidence to suggest that the book was a gift from Olivier to Vivien Leigh; it could equally have been a present to Olivier or Vivien Leigh from another person altogether. For other items given to Olivier connected with his stage roles, see Add. MS 80599.
