L'Eclipse de 1832.
L'Eclipse de 1832.
Lith. de Delaporte Sr. de Langlume.
On s'abonne chez Aubert, Galerie Vero Dodat. [Paris, 1832.]
Lithograph with some hand colouring, sheet 255 x 330mm. 10 x 13".
A contemporary satire on reactions to the solar eclipse of July 1832; a military officer (centre) tries to rouse a man in theatrical costume from his slumber in a chair, gesturing towards the celestial phenomenon (coloured) upper right. Rows of sleeping men in armchairs to right, several figures looking through telescopes to left. The unrest of 1830 brought about the popular overthrow of the entrenched power within France and by summer 1832 the political scene was quite altered and the eclipse is used as an analogy. For the Paris periodical 'La Caricature', numbered 'No.60' upper right.

Oval portraits of James Sadler (1753 – 1828) and Stuart Amos Arnold. Sadler was the first English balloonist and the second person, after Vincenzo Lunardi (1754 – 1806), to make a balloon ascent in England. He was an eminent scientist and made a number of important discoveries; notably that hot air, rather than smoke, as the Montgolfiers had wrongly concluded, was required for airborne propulsion, managed tomanufacture hydrogen at a time when the element was so new it hadn’t even been named and was the first to create an adjustable fire in the basket to manipulate the balloon’s altitude. Arnold is most famous for his balloon that launched 31 August 1785 from St George's Fields, London, which ended in disaster after it got caught on some railings.
