Charles Lyell Esq.r F.R.S. F.G.S. [with facsimile signature]
From a daguerreotype by J.E. Mayall P.S. Duval, Lith. Phil.a On Stone by Albert Newsam
Published by J.W. Mayall, at his Gallery, Chesnut & 5.th St. Phil.a Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1846 by J.E. Mayall, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the Eastern District of P.a
Lithograph, printed area approx. 395 x 310mm (15½ x 12¼").
A very rare portrait of Sir Charles Lyell, first baronet (1797-1857), geologist. From 1823-1826 he was secretary of the Geological Society and later served as president. Lyell's highly influential 'Principles of Geology' (1830-33) was an important source for the theories of Charles Darwin and went to many editions. He urged Darwin to publish 'Origin of Species', 1859, with Sir Joseph Hooker. Lithograph after a daguerreotype by, and published by, John Jabez Edwin Mayall (1813-1901), photographer and local politician. Raised in England, Mayall spent time in New York before settling in Philadelphia where he made his reputation as a pioneer of the new art of daguerreotypy. It was in Philadelphia that this print was published, probably based on a daguerreotype made while Lyell was lecturing in the United States in the 1840s. The geologist visited the US to give the Lowell lectures twice (in 1841-2 and 1845-6) and published 'Travels in North America' (1845) based on his experiences there.

The public were scandalised at the 22 year old Malibran playing the aged figure.

Parker spent his career in the navy and was promoted to rear-admiral in 1778, travelling as second in command in the squadron going out to North America with Vice-Admiral John Byron during the American Revolutionary War (1775-83). After naval victories against the French in the Caribbean, Parker was promoted vice-admiral and commanded a squadron in the North Sea, engaging the Dutch fleet near the Dogger Bank in 1781. After the battle he resigned, blaming himself for the squadrons failure to secure a decisive victory despite the attempts of George III to persuade him otherwise (Parker told the king the navy needed younger commanders and newer ships). Fine mezzotint after the portrait by Romney (in or before 1782/3) in Melford Hall, Suffolk, a version of which is in the National Maritime Museum, London, which shows Parker gesturing to the Dogger Bank action behind him.
