Engraving. 310 x 440mm (12¼ x 17¼").
View in the Admiralty Islands, in the Manus Province of Papua New Guinea, with locals spear-fishing from canoes. In 1788 Jean-Francois de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse set sail from Botany Bay and was never seen again. Despite the upheaval of the French Revolution the National Assembly was moved to send an expedition in search of their lost hero, 1791-3, under Chevalier Bruni d'Entrecasteaux. Despite finding no trace of La Perouse, losing its commander and many crew to scurvy, and finally splitting between royalist and republican factions, the expedition was judged a success because of the important observations made by the expedition's scientists, especially in Australia. This account, compiled by the expedition's botanist, Jacques Julien Houtou de Labillardière, was published as 'Relation du voyage à la recherche de La Pérouse', with natural history plates by Redouté and Audebert. The work even has its own abbreviation in botantical literature, 'Voy.Rech.Perouse'.

In 1902 the hospital became known as the Royal Naval Hospital Haslar, and in the 1940s, RNH Haslar set up the country's first 'blood bank' to help treat wounded soldiers from the Second World War. The Royal Hospital Haslar officially closed as the last military hospital in the UK in 2007, and is now used by the Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust to treat both military and civilian patients.

Diploma, ADS on one half of folded sheet with red wax seal, page 225 x 185mm. Creases from folds, as normal.
Westminster Hospital was founded in 1719, following a meeting in a coffee house, where four men met to discuss a 'charitable proposal for relieving the sick and needy and other distressed persons”. In 1834 a medical school attached to the hospital was formally founded. Westminster Hospital moved from Marsham Street to become Chelsea and Westminster Hospital at the old St Stephen's Hospital site in 1994. From the hand of and signed by John Ayrton Paris, M.D. (1785 - 1856). He had been elected a fellow of the College of Physicians 30 Sept. 1814, and from 1819 to 1826 lectured there on materia medica. He attained considerable practice as a physician, and was famous for his resource in treatment and skill in prescribing. In making out what was the matter, he trusted much to the patient's general appearance, asked only a few questions, and made no very minute physical examination. His prescriptions were remarkable for their efficiency, and for the minute care with which they were drawn up. His ‘Pharmacologia’ published in 1812, and revised by him up to the ninth edition in 1843, was a general treatise on materia medica and therapeutics. It was long the standard book on its subject, and he made five thousand guineas by its sale. He published in 1823 a book on ‘Medical Jurisprudence,’ which still continues to be the only English work on the subject with any pretensions to literary value. His portrait, by Skottowe, has been engraved by Bellin, and hangs in the dining-room of the College of Physicians of London. His bust, by Jackson, is at Falmouth, in the hall of the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society. Paper watermarked 1807.

Etched diploma on watermarked laid paper, with vignette of the hospital, signed and dated and completed in ink, sheet 240 x 190mm. Creases from folds, as normal.
Westminster Hospital was founded in 1719, following a meeting in a coffee house, where four men met to discuss a 'charitable proposal for relieving the sick and needy and other distressed persons”. In 1834 a medical school attached to the hospital was formally founded. Westminster Hospital moved from Marsham Street to become Chelsea and Westminster Hospital at the old St Stephen's Hospital site in 1994. One of the signatories is Sir Anthony Carlisle (1768 - 1840). After attending the lectures of John Hunter, Baillie, and Cruikshank, and being the resident pupil of Mr. Henry Watson, surgeon to Westminster Hospital, he succeeded to the surgeoncy in 1793, and held the office till his death in 1840. Carlisle became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1800, and in 1804 delivered the Croonian lecture on ‘Muscular Motion,’ following it by another on the ‘Muscles of Fishes’ in 1805. He contributed other papers on biological subjects to the Philosophical and Linnean ‘Transactions,’ the ‘Philosophical Magazine,’ &c. Carlisle was long a member of the council of the College of Surgeons (from 1815) and an examiner (from April 1825), holding these appointments till death. He took great interest in Westminster Hospital, and was largely instrumental in raising funds for the new building. Carlisle was neither a brilliant anatomist nor physiologist, but was a fairly good surgeon. His introduction of the thin-bladed, straight-edged amputating knife, in place of the old clumsy crooked one, and his use of the simple carpenter's saw make his name chiefly worthy of note.

William Henson's Aerial Steam Carriage is depicted in a ficticious flight over the Pyramids. In 1842 William Henson (1812-1888) patented his design for an Aerial Steam Carriage, known as the 'Ariel'. Although the design never flew, it acted as a basis for much of the thinking of the early aviation pioneers, and laid the foundations for the modern monoplane. With his partner, John Stringfellow, plans were made to set up an airfreight company, the Aerial Steam Transit Company, to transport goods acoss the world.

A satire on the exaggerated ambitions of the 'Henson Aerial Steam Carriage', patented by William Samuel Henson (1812-88) in 1843, over half-a-century before the Wright Brothers' first flight. He incorporated the 'Aerial Transit Company' in 1843, and built a scale model of this steam-powered aeroplane, which did manage to hop (or perhaps bounce) off the ground. However a lack of sustained success led to the company being wound up in 1848.

A fictitious flight of the Aerial Steam Carriage over the Thames. The Aerial Steam Carriage was patented in 1842 by William Samuel Henson and John Stringfellow.

Engraving, plate 125 x 200mm (5 x 7¾"). Publication line partially obscured.
Oval portraits of James Sadler (1753 – 1828) and Stuart Amos Arnold. Sadler was the first English balloonist and the second person, after Vincenzo Lunardi (1754 – 1806), to make a balloon ascent in England. He was an eminent scientist and made a number of important discoveries; notably that hot air, rather than smoke, as the Montgolfiers had wrongly concluded, was required for airborne propulsion, managed tomanufacture hydrogen at a time when the element was so new it hadn’t even been named and was the first to create an adjustable fire in the basket to manipulate the balloon’s altitude. Arnold is most famous for his balloon that launched 31 August 1785 from St George's Fields, London, which ended in disaster after it got caught on some railings.

[Life of Aesop: Aesop convicting his fellow servants of having eaten the figs.] [So thrive false witnesses...]
[Etched by Thomas Dudley after Francis Barlow.]
[Amsterdam: Etiènne Roger, 1714.]
Etching. Sheet 205 x 165mm (8 x 6½") Trimmed within plate, mounted on album paper.
Aesop, having beeen accused of eating his master's figs, has vomited to show he had eaten nothing, then insists his accusers do the same, proving their guilt. Plate 1 of thirty-one illustrations added to the second edition of Barlow's "Æsop's Fables, With His Life" (1687), to illustrate the translation of Planudes's Life of Aesop, which was unillustrated in the first edition of 1666. This example comes from an Amsterdam edition, 'Les Fables d'Esope', with the printing plate trimmed down. All of the plates were designed by Barlow: they were etched c.1678-9, only five by Barlow; the rest, including this one, by Thomas Dudley. Originally the plate extended down with a title verse (possibly written by Aphra Behn, who wrote new verses for the fables), but for this non-English edition the verse was trimmed off and new borders engraved. Little is known of Dudley: on one plate of this series he signed himself as a student of Wenceslaus Hollar; and in 1679 he went to Lisbon, where he is known to have made further prints, and he is not supposed to have returned to England thereafter. He etched some portraits but these prints after Barlow are his most important work.
