Luigi Sacco (1769-1836) was the first Italian physician to understand the value of vaccination, discovered first by Edward Jenner in 1798. He successfully spread the new method around northern Italy and from 1803 he became physician in chief of l'Ospedale Maggiore in Milan. This particular medal was struck in Sacco's honour by the municipality of Bologna.

Title page to the set of views in north Wales published in 1776 by Paul Sandby (bap. 1731, d. 1809). Sandby, one of the foremost landscape artists of his generation, had published a similar set of views in south Wales the previous year, having collected material during sketching tours in 1771 and 1773 with Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Charles Greville, and Joseph Banks, the dedicatees of the two sets. Over the coming decades Wales became highly popular amongst tourists searching for romantic and picturesque landscapes, due in no small part to Sandby's popular depictions.

[Satan Alarmed.]
[Satan Alarmed.]
[Painted by Richard Westall. Engraved by J.P. Simon.]
[n.d. c.1794.]
Stipple engraving, proof before all letters. Image 222 x 158mm. Trimmed inside plate to c.5mm outside image top and sides, and to c.20mm below. Glued to an album page at edges.
This extremely scarce proof engraving by Jean Pierre Simon [1750? - c.1810] after Richard Westall R.A. [1765 - 1836] illustrates the fourth book of John Milton's great epic poem 'Paradise Lost'. Satan journeys to the Garden of Eden (Paradise), discovers Adam and Eve and attempts to work their fall. Gabriel, who guards the gate of Paradise, has been alerted that an evil spirit has descended and two of his angels find Satan at the ear of Eve, tempting her in a dream. This image illustrates Lines 985 -990, the confrontation between Satan and Gabriel: 'On the other side, Satan alarm'd, Collecting all his might, dilated stood, Like Teneriffe, or Atlas, unremoved: His stature reach'd the sky, and on his crest Sat horrour plumed; nor wanted in his grasp, What seem'd both spear and shield.' From 'The Poetical Works of John Milton' published by John and Josiah Boydell in three volumes between 1794 and 1797, in only one edition. It contained four engraved portraits and 28 plates after Westall by among others R. Earlom, T. Kirk, J. Ogborne, B. Smith, as well as J.P. Simon. Westall was an accomplished artist in watercolour who illustrated a number of books, including Boydells' 'Shakespeare', and contributed 5 large scale paintings for the 'Shakespeare Gallery'.
