A Junior Department was formed in 1802, to train gentlemen cadets as officers of the Line. A new college was built at Sandhurst, into which the cadets moved in 1812. After 1860, the RMC succeeded the East India Company's Military Seminary as the establishment where most officers of the Indian Army were trained. Following the abolition of the purchase system in 1870, attendance at Sandhurst became to usual route to a commission. The College was enlarged in 1912, when New College was built.

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.

Alfred Tidey, Pinx.t. William Underwood, Litho. Printed by Hullmandel & Walton.
Published June 10th 1852, by J.L. Grundy, 130, Regent St.
Lithograph on india with back-sheet printed with title; extremely rare. Sheet 470 x 350mm (18½ x 13¾"). Some spotting, corner creased.
Half-length portrait of William Henry Phillips, whose 'Patent portable fire annihilator, for extinguishing fire by gases and vapour, affording a means of saving life and property when water may be unavailing' was exhibited at the Great Exhibition of 1851, winning a prize. This was a device that used a chemical reaction to produce a cloud of carbon dioxide to smother a fire. A motion was presented to Parliament that every government vessel should have an Annihilator. However the Fire Annihilator Works, at Battersea Fields, burned to the ground in 1852, and the business failed. P.T. Barnum invested in the company that bought the American patent, but after some unsatisfactory trials, that company also closed, although the Great American Showman still believed the invention was a valuable one, writing about it in his autobiography.
