Printed by C. Moody, 257 High Holborn, London. [n.d., c.1840.]
Tinted lithograph, sheet 420 x 650mm. 16½ x 25½". Surface soiled.
A fine prospect of Caerhays Castle near St. Austell, Cornwall, a Grade I Listed Building built by the famous architect, John Nash, for the Trevanion family. Building work started in 1807 and was completed by 1810. The Trevanions must have been stretched by the construction cost of Caerhays since, by 1825, they had taken out a mortgage (incumbrance) with The Bank of England for £20,000. Further mortgages accumulated along with their gambling debts and, by 1842, the Trevanion family fled to Bruges and their estates were acquired by their creditors.

The Celebrated Logan Rock near the Land's End in Cornwall.
J. Tonkin delin: J.P. Vibert. Lithog:
Penzance. Published by Vibert & Tonkin Sep: 27. 1824.
Lithograph, sheet 345 x 470mm. 13½ x 18½". Horizontal crease.
The Logan Rock is an eighty ton granite boulder perched on the edge of a headland overlooking the Atlantic ocean one mile south of the Cornish village of Treen. It an example of a logan or rocking stone, being finely balanced due to the actions of weathering. The first plate from a set of six illustrating the events of 1824: in April Lieutenant Hugh Goldsmith (nephew of the famous poet Oliver Goldsmith) and ten or twelve of his crew of the cutter HMS Nimble rocked the huge granite boulder armed with bars and levers until it fell from its cliff-top perch. Goldsmith was apparently motivated to disprove the claim of Dr. Borlase, who wrote in 'Antiquities of Cornwall' in 1754 that "...the extremities of [the Rock's] base are at such a distance from each other, and so well secured by their nearness to the stone which it stretches itself upon, that it is morally impossible that any lever, or indeed force, however applied in a mechanical way, can remove it from its present situation". The displacement of the rock upset the local residents considerably, since Logan Rock had been used to draw tourists to the area. The Lords of the Admiralty were persuaded to lend Lieutenant Goldsmith the required apparatus for replacing it. The Admiralty sent thirteen capstans with blocks and chains from the dock yard at Plymouth, and contributed £25 towards expenses. After months of effort, at 4.20pm on Tuesday, the 2nd of November, 1824, in front of thousands of spectators and with the help of more than sixty men and block and tackle, the Logan Rock was finally repositioned and returned to "rocking condition". However, it apparently no longer vibrates or "logs" as easily as it did before the incident.

Hackett, lithog.d, 15, Paris Street, Exeter
Scarce lithographic map with hand-colouring, backed onto linen, printed area approx. 715 x 2150mm (28¼ x 84¾")
Very large map showing the area between Plymouth and St. Austell in Cornwall on the south coast of England, and north as far as Liskeard. The map shows the proposed coastal road between St. Austell and Torpoint (across the river Tamar from Plymouth) and was surveyed under the direction of the renowned civil engineer James Meadow Rendel (1799-1856). Rendel was born near Okehampton in Devon and, after working for Thomas Telford, set up his own practice in Plymouth in 1822. Rendel's bridge across an estuary of the Plym within Plymouth harbour (completed 1827) established him as a leader of contemporary bridge design, and in the 1830s Rendel's reputation was such that he was involved in the improvement and development of practically every river and harbour in south-west England. In 1838 he moved to London and thereafter took on projects in the north of England and Scotland and, in the 1850s, countries including South Africa, India and Brazil.
For a portrait of Rendel see ref. 22531.
