Portrait of William Wyndham Grenville, 1st Baron Grenville (1759 - 1834). He wears a long lace cravat and ruffles, and a heavy black brocaded silk Chancellor's robe with gold lace trimming on collar, facings and sleeves. His right hand clasps an upright brass bound volume standing on a table to left, on which are also a bundle of papers tied up with tape. Curtain behind to right, and to left, a view of Christ Church seen through a window. Grenville, William Pitt's first cousin, served as Speaker of the House of Commons (1789) and Foreign Secretary (1791-1801). The protégé and loyal follower of his cousin, Grenville was angered by Pitt's failure to oppose Addington and broke with him to join Fox and Grey in opposition. It was as head of the 'Ministry of All the Talents' coalition government, following Pitt's death, that Grenville was Prime Minister from 1806 to 1807. A reluctant leader, he resigned over George III's refusal to agree to Catholic emancipation. His administration nevertheless saw the abolition of British participation in the slave trade.

Monument Erected to the Memory of Sir Isaac Newton in Westminster Abbey.
Byley del. Fittler sculp.
Published by R. Bowyer, Historic Gallery, Pall Mall _ May 20, 1794.
Trimmed to plate, glued on album sheet at edges.
Obelisk shaped monument with relief sculpture, Newton reclining on top of a casket or sarcophagus decorated with frieze; he gestures towards a scroll held by two cherubs to right, a female figure relining on a globe above at top. Sir Isaac Newton FRS (1643 - 1727) was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and theologian who is perceived and considered by a substantial number of scholars and the general public as one of the most influential men in history. His 1687 publication of the Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica is considered to be among the most influential books in the history of science, laying the groundwork for most of classical mechanics. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motions of objects on Earth and of celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural laws by demonstrating the consistency between Kepler's laws of planetary motion and his theory of gravitation, thus removing the last doubts about heliocentrism and advancing the scientific revolution. In mechanics, Newton enunciated the conservation principles of momentum and angular momentum. In optics, he built the first practical reflecting telescope and developed a theory of colour based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into the many colours that form the visible spectrum. He also formulated an empirical law of cooling and studied the speed of sound. In mathematics, Newton shares the credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of the differential and integral calculus. He also demonstrated the generalised binomial theorem, developed the so-called "Newton's method" for approximating the zeroes of a function, and contributed to the study of power series. From Bowyer's edition of David Hume's 'History of England'.

Fine engraving. Plate 445 x 328mm. Sheet 685 x 503mm. Scuffed and some tears around the edge of the sheet.
Sir John Borlase Warren, 1st Baronet (2 September 1753 - 27 February 1822), was an English admiral, politician and diplomat. He entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge in 1769, but in 1771 entered the Royal Navy as an able seaman; in 1774 he became member of Parliament for Great Marlow; and in 1775 he was created a baronet. His career as a seaman really began in 1777, and two years later he obtained command of a ship. In April 1794, as Commodore of the frigate squadron off the north west French coast assisting in the blockade of Brest, Warren and his squadron captured a number of French frigates. In 1795 he commanded one of the two squadrons carrying troops for the Quiberon expedition and in 1796 his frigate squadron off Brest is said to have captured or destroyed 220 vessels. In October 1798 a French fleet, carrying 5000 men, sailed from Brest intending to invade Ireland. The plan was frustrated in no small part due to the squadron under his command. In 1802 he was sworn of the Privy Council and sent to St. Petersburg as ambassador extraordinary, but he did not forsake the sea, and in 1806 he captured a large French warship, the Marengo at the Action of 13 March 1806. He became an Admiral in 1810, and was commander-in-chief on the North American Station in 1813-1814. He died on 27 February 1822.
