Two Afghan 'Rangers', members of a British irregular unit raised in Kohistan, north-east of Kabul.

The artist, James Rattray (1818-54), a second lieutenant in the 2nd Grenadiers of the Bengal Army, served in Afghanistan during the First Afghan War (1839-42), taking part in the famous retreat from Kabul, manning the rear guard. This lithograph is from the second edition of Rattray's 'Scenery, Inhabitants, & Costumes, of Afghaunistan from Drawings made on the Spot', published the year after the first.

An elevation of famous mental hospital Moorfields, designed by Sir Robert Hooke. The governors of the hospital funded the first publication (1677) of this exceptionally large view, paying Robert White £40 to engrave the three plates and having final approval of his work. After presentation copies of the print were run off (for the govenors, Charles II and James, Duke of York, and others), the printing plates were given as a reward for service to the Clerk of the Governors 'to make the best advantage hee can thereof'. By 1694 the plates were owned by John Garrett (whose partially erase imprint can be seen at the bottom centre), before becoming the property of William Herbert. Herbert's address was the Golden Globe on London Bridge, one of ten new buildings erected on the bridge in 1749. He was forced to move when the bridge was cleared of buildings in 1759.

The defences of Bombay facing the sea. The fort was started by the Portuguse and improved by the British; Grindlay considered them too extensive, needing too large a garrison. From Robert Grindlay's (1786-1877) 'Scenery, costumes and architecture, chiefly on the western side of India,' 1826-30. Grindlay, founder of the ANZ Grindlays Bank, came to India in 1803, aged only 17, and worked with the East India Company, serving with the Seventh Bombay Native Infantry from 1804-1820. William Westall (1781-1850) had travelled to Australia as artist for the Flinders expedition. Westall found the Australian landscape boring, and so, when the expedition broke up after the lead ship, the 'Investigator', was condemned, Westall travelled to India. This was without the permission of his employers, the Admiralty, who sacked him, although they still paid him to complete nine full oil paintings of his sketches of Australia.
