Publications by the Moores

I am aware of just two publications, both privately printed and circulated, one written by George Moore following his visit to America and the other by his second wife. In addition, I recently became aware of the existence of and managed to acquire a book of lectures delivered at the London HQ of Copestake, Moore & Crampton in 1860-61

1.  Voyage across the Atlantic by George Moore, Esq.

2.  Whitehall in Cumberland by Mrs  Agnes Jane Moore

3.  Lectures 1860 - 61 Premises of Copestake Moore & Frampton


   Busts of George Moore, Esq. & Mrs Agnes Jane Moore.  These busts reside in the Community Centre in Fletchertown.
