Grossmith is best remembered for creating a series of characters in the operas of Gilbert and Sullivan, and for writing the comic novel, Diary of a Nobody (1892).

His first engagement was in 1870 with a nightly spot at the Royal Polytechnic Institution in Regent Street, and during the next few years he gave countless entertainments at literary institutes and public halls. His 'sketches' included anecdotes, satirical commentary and comic songs. For twelve years from 1877, Grossmith played the chief comic part in all of Gilbert and Sullivan's operas, including Sir Joseph Porter, in H.M.S. Pinafore, and the Major-General in The Pirates of Penzance. After a painting by Walter Weedon Grossmith (1854 - 1919), younger brother of the sitter. Having studied at the Royal Academy schools and the Slade School he became a painter, and exhibited at the Royal Academy and Grosvenor Gallery. In 1885 he went on the stage, and soon made a hit as Lord Arthur Pomeroy in Cecil Clay's 'A Pantomime Rehearsal'.

Two brothers, Alexander and Michael McKean, attempted to rob the Jolly Carter pub, where the Friendly and Orange Societies held meetings and kept a strongbox with their funds. Renting beds, the brothers attacked during the night, and Alexander cut the throat of Elizabeth Bate, a 41-year-old servant, in front of William Bate, aged 13, who managed to escape. The noise woke landlord Joseph Blears and his wife Martha; Michael stabbed Martha in the face, breaking the blade of his knife, before running off. A reward of fifty guineas was offered for the capture of the McKeans and the pair were arrested in Kirkby Lonsdale, brought back to Lancaster Castle, where they were tried, found guilty of murder and hanged. William Higgins was the main witness.

John Horne Tooke
John Horne Tooke Born in June 1736.
Painted by I.R. Smith. Engraved by W. Ward Engraver to H.R.H. the Duke of York.
Published May 29, 1811, by I.R. Smith, 33, Newman Street, Oxford Street, London.
Mezzotint, with large margins, 650 x 450mm. 25½ x 17¾".
John Horne Tooke (1736 - 1812), radical politician and philologist. Horne Tooke was an ardent campaigner for liberty and parliamentary reform who helped establish 'The Society for Supporting the Bill of Rights' and was instrumental in organising the distribution of Thomas Paine's The Rights of Man in 1791. In 1794 he was wrongly accused of planning an uprising and imprisoned in the Tower of London. William Godwin's written attack against the charge of high treason was widely read and seen as contributing decisively to Horne Tooke's eventual acquittal. Horne Tooke also achieved widespread acclaim for the Diversions of Purley (1786 and 1805), a major two-volume work of philology, the study of ancient texts and languages. He reclines on a sofa-bed beneath a canopy, his hands clasped together, books beneath him and notes towards a third volume of the Diversions of Purley at his feet. After John Raphael Smith (1751 - 1812). 'First Fifty' inscribed lower right corner.

Drawn by A. Arrowsmith.
[London: Elizabeth Stuart, 1794.]
Engraved map by T. Foot, with large margins. 325 x 495mm, 12¾ x 19½".
Map of Piraeus (the port of Athens) with Phaleron Bay (or Faliro) the original port, superceded by the construction of Piraeus, published in the 'Antiquities of Athens and Other Monuments of Greece' by James 'Athenian' Stuart & Nicholas Revett. Stuart (171388) and Revett (17201804) joined Gavin Hamillton and Matthew Brettingham on a Grand Tour of Italy, the Balkans & Greece between 1748-55. On their return they started work on the 'Antiquities', which was the first accurate survey of the surviving classical buildings of Athens, with the first volume published in 1762, the second 1789, third 1794, fourth 1816 and fifth 1830 (nearly 80 years after the first). The work was incredibly influential, fueling the Greek revivalist style in 18th-century English architecture. The attention to detail was such that it attracted the attention of Hogarth, who satirised the work with his 'Five Orders of Periwig'. This map was published in Volume 4; the general map of Attica in the same volume was signed by Arrowsmith.
