Please find a bibliography on Christopher Dresser attached (“Dresser, Christopher”). I also did a quick search for “Christopher Dresser” in the Design and Applied Arts Index – do you have access to that database? There were quite a few results that looked relevant; I attached a bibliography of the first 94 citations (“ProQuestDocuments-2015-01-27”).
I looked through some of our books and vertical files, but was not able to find relevant ads from the Liberty Department Store. Do you know of any periodicals that they regularly advertised in? Perhaps you would have more luck looking for ads in sources documenting the history of the store. The City of Westminster Archives Centre has part of the company’s archives (the company keeps the rest closed to the public). There is a recent book on the store’s history, Liberty Style. While it might not have a large volume of ads, perhaps it has a few relevant images or a citation that would lead you somewhere useful.
