H.M.S. Barham quitting Constantinople.
H.M.S. Barham quitting Constantinople. With Sir Stafford Canning on b.d 12th August 1832.
C.F. Brocktorff del. Malta.
[n.d., c.1835.]
Coloured lithograph. Printed area 330 x 350mm, 13 x 13¾". Slight scuffing in margins, very scarce.
HMS Barham leaving Istanbul, lithographed after James Kennett Wilson by Charles Frederick de Brocktorff (1775-1850), the famous Maltese artist. Barham was launched in 1811 as a 74-gun third rate ship of the line. However, after nearly being wrecked near Bonaire in the Antilles in 1829, it was rescued and restored with only 50 guns. This view is one from a series depicting the voyage between England and Constantinople, starting 1831, which was of particular interest because one of the passengers was Sir Walter Scott: the writer has suffered a series of debilitating strokes and had been advised to seek warmer climes to recuperate. The Barham took Scott to Gibraltar and Malta before leaving him at Naples, from where he returned to Scotland overland to die at home in Abbotsford in 1832. At Constantinople they picked up Canning, the British Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, who spent a decade on other postings before returning to Constantinople in 1842.

Her Majesty The Queen Dowager Adelaide.
Her Majesty The Queen Dowager Adelaide. Entering Malta Harbour on Board H.M.S. Hastings 30th Nov.ber 1838.
Drawn and Lith.d by C. von Brocktorff. Malta.
[n.d., c.1838.]
Very scarce hand coloured lithograph. Sheet size: 365 x 520mm (14¼ x 20½"). Central vertical crease. Taped to mount.
A scene at Valletta Harbour, Malta, depicting Queen Adelaide on board H.M.S Hastings, greeted by crowds of joyful supporters both in boats and on the waters edge. The fortifications of the city can bee seen in the background. A year after her husband William III's death, Queen Adelaide cruised the Mediterranean and visited Malta, where she was received enthusiastically. Apparently there was no Anglican church at Malta, and she was ultimately responsible for founding and endowing the Anglican Cathedral of St Paul at Valetta, Malta (she laid the foundation stone in 1839).
