Samuel Astley Dunham (1796 17 July 1858) was a British historian, and author of many works. All were distinguished by original research and conscientious thoroughness. He is stated to have had a long and intimate acquaintance with Spain, presumably prior to the writing of his history. He was intimate with Southey, who spoke of his knowledge of the Middle Ages as marvellous, and he was in close correspondence with Lingard, the historian, who was godfather to one of his sons. His death took place suddenly by paralysis on 17 July 1858. One of his sons was a missionary priest, working in the Australian bush in 1888. (Wikipedia); Vol. 1/5/2019; Engraving; 24mo 5" - 6" tall
