Watercolour, sheet 135 x 70mm (5¼ x 2¾").
In 1783 the surgeon and anatomist John Hunter (1728-93) acquired a large house at 28 Leicester Square (on the east side of the sqaure), London. That is seemingly the address portrayed in this watercolour (the original site is much changed). Since there the site depicted is a bathhouse and the watercolour was certainly made after Hunter's death, however, it presumably shows the appearance of the building after Hunter's death.

Pair of engravings. Each 510 x 350mm (20 x 13¾"), with very large margins.
Two female allegorical figures: Justice, seated on steps, looking at the scales in her right hand, holding the neck of an ostrich with her left; and Meekness, sitting on a stool, wearing a veil decorated with pearls, one hand at her bare breast, a lamb curled under her foot. Raphael painted the figures of Justice and Meekness in the Sala di Constantino, using oil instead of the fresco of the other decorations in the room, painted by his pupils. They were sketched by Robert Strange in Florence in 1761, engraved by him in London 1768 and published in a collected edition of his engravings. According to a letter written by Strange to the 'Scots Magazine' in 1761: 'leave was solicited, and after much difficulty granted [with the help of Cardinal Carlo Rezzonico, nephew of Pope Clement XIII], that I should erect a scaffold in the Vatican, which, for several years past, has been absolutely prohibited. I began, in that place, with two figures; the one representing 'Justice', and the other 'Meekness', by Raphael; they are in the Hall of Constantine, and were the last things he painted before his death. These figures contain all that is excellent in painting...'.

The London Engineer began her service in 1818, setting off from Margate, as a packet boat carrying passengers between Margate and London. Ackermann's Repository of Arts was an illustrated, British periodical published from 1809-1829 by Rudolph Ackermann. The formal title of the publication was "Respository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics", and it did cover all of these fields. At the time, it was considered to be of great influence to the English taste in fashion, architecture, and literature.

A Long Pull. A Stong Pull and a Pull Altogether!!!
A Long Pull. A Stong Pull and a Pull Altogether!!!
[Henry Heath.]
Pub Apl: 1829 by Tregear Cheapside London_
Hand-coloured etching. Sheet: 255 x 355mm (10 x 14"). Trimmed.
Wellington and Eldon (trying to influence him against Emancipation) in a tug-of-war for George IV. The bandage round the King's shoulder is inscribed 'Expediency' and is attached to Wellington's pole which is topped by a cross supporting a papal tiara. Round the King's waist and elbows is a bandage inscribed 'Coronation Oath' twisted round Eldon's pole which is topped by a mitre. The agonised King prances in front of the throne; he shrieks and his crown falls off. Wellington seems to be winning; he wears uniform with cavalry boots; Peel tugs at his sash, while Mackintosh, in Highland dress, holds Peel (Home Secretary). Eldon, who is in his shirt-sleeves, is supported only by Cumberland who wears hussar uniform, and holds his leader by the chin. George's mistress Lady Conyngham, behind Wellington, peeps from the draperies of the throne. After the title is a little figure registering astonishment in imitation of the Paul Pry (but not P. P.) signature of W. Heath.
