A History of British Starfishes, etc. ...... (See Lib. Cat. p. 38.)
This notable work was dedicated to Professor Agassiz. The preface shows the many sources from which Forbes got his information. His skill with the pencil is exhibited to the full in this vol. There are 127 illustrations, most of them spewing figures of species of the starfishes, and there are others of a character illustrating his love of humour and poetical instinct. There are also a number of illustrations showing his love of his native land, for he has as tail pieces many local views, including the Round Tower and St. German's Cathedral, Peel, as well as au ancient cross-slab. He states in his preface that with three exceptions the illustrations are from his own drawings, and with a view to secure correctness were mostly drawn on the wood by himself. An inspection of some of the dainty little figures will show how accurate a draughtsman he was.

There is a MS. collection of letters (20) written by Professor Forbes to William Thompson, Donegal-square, Belfast, from 5th February, 1840, to 11th Jan., 1851. These have not yet been printed. These were in 1887 presented to the Trustees by Mr. Thompson.

FORBES (James Grellier, Artist, 1831-1857). In Mx .Sun, 24th Oct., 1857.
James Grellier Forbes was the youngest brother of Professor Edward Forbes. He was born in Douglas in 1831, and died at the early age of 26. His career is frequently referred to in the 'Manx Sun.' The 'Grellier' in his name is due to the fact that Grellier, editor of the 'Sun,' was his god-father. The following pictures are recorded as exhibited by him :-In St. Mary's Abbey and Cloisters : 'St. David's, Wales.' In side chapel leading into King John's Hall : 'St. David's, S. Wales,' dated July, 1856, signed J. G. Forbes. Exhibited in London, 1853-1857 : one in Roy. Acad.; one in Brit. Institution ; two in various Exhibitions. These subjects were all historical : 'Prince Hal,' a study (No. 853), 1852. While in London his residence was 2 Russell-place, Fitzroy- square. Other notable pictures by him were : ' Fenella,' a scene from ' Peveril of the Peak'; 'The Village Black- smith,' being a scene in a smithy at Ballaugh, and exhibited with 'Little Nell' at the Nat, Inst., London, in 1857 ; 'The Cobbler,' ' Clovelly in Devon,' exhibited at Birmingham just before his death, besides others. There is a fine crayon drawing in the Manx Museum by J. G. Forbes, entitled : 'For Fools rush in.' It was the gift of the late Mrs. Matthews of Glenmoore, whose family was connected with the Forbes.
