[Thirty etchings by William Delamotte]
[Thirty etchings by William Delamotte]
Book, 4to (340 x 250mm, 13½ x 9¾). Green morocco, with gilt border decoration and gilt stamped banded spine inscribed 'Etchings by Delamotte'. Gilt stamped cover inscribed 'Royal Military College / Presented for Attention to, and Progress In, Landscape Drawing' with royal coat of arms on front and back cover. Ms. inside cover identifying Gentleman Cadet Thomas H. Lovett as recipient, November 1834. Etchings printed c.1834 (first published 1816-7).
Two sets of topographical etchings in the vicinity of Sandhurst, Berkshire (of twenty and ten plates respectively) by William Delamotte (1775-1863), landscape artist. From 1812 Delamotte was a drawing master at the Royal Military College in Sandhurst. He was still teaching there in 1834, when this volume was presented to a cadet for his achievements in landscape drawing, so it is likely that Delamotte was personally involved with the production and presentation of the volume. Influenced by Girtin's watercolour style, Delamotte was one of a group of landscape artists also including Constable and Turner, who took to making oil sketches in the open. Previously Delamotte had spent four years living in Oxford, also as a drawing master, and several of Delamotte's earlier prints show views in and around Oxford.

Views on the Thames of stages in the demolition of the old London Bridge, and the construction of John Rennie's new bridge. In 1800 it was decided to replace the old bridge, and a competition was held producing many varied designs. In 1824, Rennie's plans were accepted. The bridge was built 180 feet west of the old Bridge and for a time Londoners could see both the old bridge and the new side-by-side. On June 15, 1825, the Lord Mayor of London, John Garratt, laid the first stone, in the presence of the Duke of York. This London Bridge was built out of granite which was quarried on Dartmoor. It was a structure of 5 arches, overall dimensions were 928 feet long and 49 feet wide. When the new bridge was finished and opened by King William and Queen Adelaide in 1831, traffic switched to the huge new structure and the demolition commenced on the old bridge. Edward William Cooke (1811 - 1880) draughtsman, illustrator, wood engraver, etcher and painter of rural and coastal scenes in oil and watercolour; son of engraver George Cooke. He was elected RA in 1864 and produced a number of drawings at Redleaf, the home of William Wells. Dedicated by the artist in ink on the titlepage: 'From E.W. Cooke, to his kind friend [name erased] Venice, Sept. 1853.'
