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.

In 1832 he published the 'Charivari' with his brother-in-law Gabriel Aubert, with whom he founded the famous publishing house Maison Aubert.

To the 2342 Electors of the City of Coventry
To the 2342 Electors of the City of Coventry Who Supported the Liberal Cause by Voting for me on Wednesday Last. Gentlemen...[six paragraphs]... Edward Fordham Flower. The Hill, Stratford-on-Avon, July 15th, 1865.
[Anon., 1865.]
Letterpress broadside, campaign poster in form of an open letter; issued by the Liberal Party on behalf of their local candidate. Sheet 400 x 235mm, 15¾ x 9¼". Sheet roughly trimmed.
A rallying cry to Liberal supporters in the Coventry, Warwickshire, by Edward Fordham Flower (1805 - 1883). Fordham was an author, who at the age of twelve went with his father to Illinois, USA, but returning in 1824 settled at Stratford-on-Avon, and opened a brewery in 1832. The brewery was so successful that in thirty years he was able to retire and leave the business to his sons. He four times held the office of mayor of Stratford, the last occasion being in 1864, the year of the Shakespeare tercentenary. As a liberal he contested Coventry in 1865, and North Warwickshire in 1868, but was not elected.
He reminds voters of the narrowness of his defeat in the recent contest (by 59 votes), and urges continued support for a future attempt.

Provenance: from a scrap album compiled c.1840 - 1880 by Alfred Towgood of Riverside, a paper mill owner at St. Neots, Huntingdon. He was also a Lieutenant in the Duke of Manchester's Light Horse.

Engraving. 330 x 480mm (13 x 18¾"). Trimmed, faint creasing.
The dress of the European inhabitants of Conception in Chile.
In 1785 Jean-Francois de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse (1741-88) was sent by the French to continue Cook's exploration work in the Pacific, in the ships 'Astrolabe' & 'Boussole'. After three years, during which time he visited Chile, California, Alaska, Kamchatka, the Philippines, Japan and Hawaii, he travelled to Australia. Outside Botany Bay he met up with Captain Arthur Phillip's First Fleet, after which he set sail and was never seen again, despite an extensive rescue mission. Fortunately La Pérouse took every oportunity to send his work back to France: one crew member disembarked in Kamchatka and spent a year crossing Siberia back to France; later journals, charts and letters he left with the British at Botany Bay. Thus his discoveries were not lost with him, but published posthumously in this work, 'Voyage de la Perouse autour du monde..'.
