Sir Daniel Cooper (1821 - 1902), merchant and philanthropist who went to Sydney, Australia in 1843. Though he left for England in 1861 and never again resided permanently in New South Wales, he continued to serve the colony. He acted frequently as agent-general for New South Wales, attending to such matters as the negotiation and supervision of mail contracts, and occasionally rendering special services such as the inquiries which culminated in the selection in 1888 of Edward Eddy as chief commissioner for railways in New South Wales. In 1881 he was chairman of the London Committee of the Sydney International Exhibition and in 1886 sat on the royal commission for the Colonial and Indian Exhibition in London. He was associated with the Royal Colonial Institute, warmly advocated imperial federation and in 1880 published A Federal British Empire the Best Defence of the Mother Country and her Colonies. In 1857 Cooper was elected to the Senate of the University of Sydney and became a generous benefactor.

Radium. [Caricature of Monsieur & Madame Curie]
Imp. Inside plate
Vanity Fair. Decr 22nd., 1904.
Chromolithograph. 340 x 205mm.
Shown in their laboratory. By the time he met his future wife, Pierre Curie (1859 - 1906) had already established a name for himself as a scientist. In 1880, he and his brother had discovered piezoelectricity whereby physical pressure applied to a crystal resulted in the creation of an electric potential. He had also made important investigations into the phenomenon of magnetism including the identification of a temperature, the curie point, above which a material's magnetic properties disappear. However, shortly after his marriage to Marie Sklodowska (1867 - 1934) in 1895, Pierre subjugated his research interests to hers. Together, they began investigating the phenomenon of radioactivity recently discovered in uranium ore (although the phenomenon was discovered by Henri Becquerel, the term radioactivity was coined by Marie). After chemical extraction of uranium from the ore, Marie noted the residual material to be more 'active' than the uranium itself. She concluded that the ore contained, in addition to uranium, new elements that were also radioactive. This led to the discoveries of the elements polonium and radium. Four more years of processing tons of ore under oppressive conditions were required to isolate enough of each element to determine its chemical properties. For their work on radioactivity, the Curies were awarded the 1903 Nobel Prize in physics. Tragically, Pierre was killed three years later in an accident while crossing a street in a rainstorm. Pierre's teaching position at the Sorbonne was given to Marie. Never before had a woman taught there in its 650 year history! Her first lecture began with the very sentence her husband had used to finish his last. In his honor, the 1910 Radiology Congress chose the curie as the basic unit of radioactivity: the quantity of radon in equilibrium with one gram of radium. A year later, Marie was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her discoveries of radium and polonium, thus becoming the first person to receive two Nobel Prizes. For the remainder of her life she tirelessly investigated and promoted the use of radium as a treatment for cancer. Marie Curie died July 4, 1934, overtaken by pernicious anemia no doubt caused by years of overwork and radiation exposure.

Attempts were made to back her off, then float her free by throwing cargo overboard, but by next flood tide she had canted over and filled. At dawn the entire ship’s complement landed safely on a small section of the reef which remained above high water, and over the next few days the three boats which remained intact were used to land stores from the wreck Meanwhile, Captain Swanson, the mate and seven seamen had left in one of the boats to obtain assistance at Pernambuco. They were picked up by the American ship Hayara and dropped near Pernambuco where they obtained help from the British Consul. On 17 October the Royal Mail Packet steamer Oneida sighted the castaways, took them on board and landed at Southampton about three weeks later.

Lieutenant General Sir Gerald Graham, VC GCB GCMG (1831-1899) was an English recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces. He was 23 years old, and a lieutenant in the Corps of Royal Engineers, British Army during the Crimean War when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC. On 18 June 1855 in the Crimea, Lieutenant Graham, accompanied by a sapper showed determined gallantry at the head of a ladder party at the assault on the Redan at Sebastopol. He also went out on numerous occasions to bring in wounded officers and men. During the Second Anglo-Chinese War he again displayed great courage and skill and, although seriously wounded in the storming of the Taku forts (August 21, 1860), subsequently entered Peking with the victors. Following his return to England in 1861, he was for 16 years commanding engineer successively at Brighton, Aldershot, Montreal, Chatham, Manchester, and York. In 1877 he was appointed assistant director of works for barracks at the War Office. In 1882 he accompanied Sir Garnet Wolseley to Egypt as brigadier general, and his forces had a great share in the victorious campaign against Urabi Pasha. In 1884 he took the field against Osman Digna, whose army he defeated at El-Teb and Tamai. In the meantime he had urged a plan for the assistance of Gordon, which, however, was not accepted. Graham was made a G.C.B. in 1896, and a colonel commandant of the Corps of Royal Engineers in 1899.

[Blackwood and Sons, London and Edinburgh, 1870.]
Very fine chromolithograph, printed in colour. 553 x 432mm. 21¾ x 17".
John Grant (1810-1879) in 1822 was employed as gillie by Sir Robert Gordon, at that time, tenant of Balmoral. In 1839 he was made keeper, and held that situation until the death of Sir Robert, in 1847. After that event, he was engaged the same year, as head Forester by H.R.H. the Prince Consort, and entrusted with the management of the Balmoral deer-forest. For twelve years he was the constant attendant of the Prince, when deer-stalking; and after Prince Albert’s death he stayed on at Balmoral, as the Queen's Head Keeper, and resided at Croft, a house built for him on the property. Seen here holding a rifle and cap; in the background, a view of the mountain Lochnagar on the Balmoral estate. Grant was permitted, on the grounds of age, to wear trousers rather than the kilt like the rest of the Queen's retainers. From a two volume publication of 31 portraits illustrating the principal clans of the Royal Household at Balmoral, reign of Queen Victoria, titled "Highlanders of Scotland".

Lith. de Becquet frères Maçons Sorbonne 5

Coloured lithograph with fine colour, printed area 200 x 480mm (8 x 19"), large margins.
Unusual long view emphasising the tremendous length of the Crystal Palace, erected in Hyde Park for the Great Exhibition of 1851. Designed by the landscape gardener and architect Joseph Paxton (1803-65) and contractor Sir Charles Fox (1810-74) who both received knighthoods for their efforts. At the close of the exhibition Paxton campaigned for keeping the building in Hyde Park as a winter garden. The public were generally in favour of its retention in Hyde Park but Prince Albert wished the building moved, and the directors of the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway floated a company to buy the materials and re-erect the building at Penge Park, near Sydenham, Kent. The project was an investor's nightmare but proved a great popular success.

H.M.S. Shah, & Chillian Ship 'Huascar'.
Published Dec. 1st 1880, by Griffin & Co. Portsmouth.
Chromolithograph. Sheet 190 x 170mm.
The 'Incident of Pacocha' took place on 6 May 1877 when Nicolas de Pierola was leading a revolution to overthrow then Peruvian President Mariano Ignacio Prado. Piérola used the Peruvian monitor Huáscar as a raiding ship. It practiced sabotage against primarily the government forces of Peru. However, after intercepting British merchant ships, the British became outraged and sent their best Pacific admiral, Rear Admiral de Horsey, to capture the vessel. The Peruvian vessel managed to sneak out of the battle scene under the cover of darkness, but was forced to surrender to the Peruvian government just 2 days later. This minor incident is inflated into a 'great victory' by deluded Peruvian nationalists.
