He exhibited landscapes at the Royal Academy from 1783 to 1787. In the latter year he was in Bath. Soon after he went to Dublin and lived at first in Exchequer Street, whence he moved in 1790 to Abbey Street. Nothing is known of him after that date. Two "Landscapes with figures," signed and dated 1790, were in the collection of Sir Francis Hopkins sold in Dublin in November, 1820; and two signed pictures, "Morning" and "Evening," were in the collection of Patrick Curtis, of 9 Fitzwilliam Square, sold in November, 1856. These were described in the catalogue as "charming productions in the style of Zuccarelli."
From a sad, comfortless childhood Giles Truelove developed into a reclusive and uncommunicative man whose sole passion was books. For so long they were the only meaning to his existence.

A story for the genuine booklover, penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St. John Featherstonehaugh.
