Stationers' Almanack, 1858.
Steel engraving, sheet 265 x 455mm. 10½ x 18". Trimmed within plate.
Holyhead is the largest town in the county of Anglesey in the north west of Wales. Holyhead's maritime importance was at its height in the 19th century when the two and a half mile breakwater, widely acknowledged to be one of Britain's finest, was built, creating a safe harbour for vessels caught in stormy waters on their way to Liverpool and the industrial ports of Lancashire. Engraved for the Stationers' Almanack. The Stationers' Company had published the Stationers' Almanack since 1747, a single-sheet which consisted of calendar text set out beneath an engraved headpiece that recorded significant events of the preceeding year.

View of the Army and Navy Club on the corner of Pall Mall and St James's Square, formerly known as George Street. Men on horseback, horse-drawn carriages and pedestrians in foreground. Engraved for the Stationers' Almanack. Founded in August 1837, the year Queen Victoria acceded to the Throne, the Club was formed to meet the needs of the many army officers wanting to join a Service Club, most of which were already full. The great Duke of Wellington said he would become neither a patron nor a Member unless membership was also offered to officers of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Hence, the "Army Club" became the Army and Navy Club. The Stationers' Company had published the Stationers' Almanack since 1747, a single-sheet which consisted of calendar text set out beneath an engraved headpiece that recorded significant events of the preceeding year.

Printed by H. Adlard. [n.d. c.1850.]
Stipple. 409 x 330mm.
Eliza Cook (1818-89), poet and journalist. She began to write verses before she was fifteen; indeed, some of her most popular poems, such as ‘I'm afloat’ and the ‘Star of Glengarry,’ were composed in her girlhood. Her first volume, ‘Lays of a Wild Harp,’ appeared as early as 1835, when she was but seventeen. Encouraged by its favourable reception, she began to send verses without revealing her name to the ‘Weekly Dispatch,’ the ‘Metropolitan Magazine,’ and the ‘New Monthly Magazine;’ and Jerdan sang her praises in the ‘Literary Gazette.’ After a time she confined herself to the ‘Weekly Dispatch,’ where her first contribution had appeared under the signature ‘C.’ on 27 Nov. 1836. In May of the following year that paper printed the ‘Old Arm Chair’ with her initials. This, by far the most popular of Eliza Cook's poems, was inspired by affection for her dead mother. Its success and that of other verses from the same pen induced the proprietor of the ‘Dispatch’ (Alderman Harmer of Ingress Abbey in Kent) to have a notice inserted in his paper requesting that the writer would reveal her name. Eliza Cook, who was now living in the neighbourhood of St. George's Road, Walworth, complied with the request. The result was a handsome pecuniary acknowledgment, and a regular engagement to contribute to the paper. Her second volume, entitled ‘Melaia and other Poems,’ was published in London in 1838 (reissued in 1840 and 1845), and met with great success both in England and America, where an edition was issued at New York in 1844. The poem which gave its title to the volume is an eastern tale, the theme being the attachment of a dog to his master. In May 1849 Eliza Cook brought out a publication upon somewhat similar lines to ‘Chambers's Journal,’ which she called ‘Eliza Cook's Journal.’ Great part of its contents reappeared in ‘Jottings from my Journal,’ 1860. They consisted of essays and sketches written in a simple, clear, and unpretending style, and generally conveyed some moral lesson. Some of them are mild satires on the social failings of her contemporaries, and exhibit good sense and some humour.
