Virtue-Tebbs, Henry (1833 -1899)
Henry Virtue Tebbs, of Chelsea and Doctors Commons, was the son of Henry Virtue Tebbs of Chelsea (b. 1797), and his wife Emma. He published Fragments in verse and prose (Bristol, 1873), for the amusement of his children. An enthusiastic member of the Burlington Fine Arts Club, he wrote the introduction for the catalogue of their D.G. Rossetti exhibition in 1883, and lent a dozen or so fine bindings to their bookbinding exhibition. His library was sold at auction by Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge 25 June 1900. In addition to some fine bindings, it contained a number of Kelmscott Press books, and a very choice set of prints from Turner's Liber studiorum.
