Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb, in the Greenwich Road.
Published June 24, 1813 by James Whittle & Richard Holmes Laurie, No. 53, Fleet Street, London.
Coloured engraving. 295 x 440mm, 11½ x 17¼".
The Asylum for the Support and Education of the Deaf and Dumb Children of the Poor was established in 1792 by Reverend John Townsend (1757-1826) of the Jamaica Row Congregation Church in Bermondsey, London. With the patronage of the Duke of Gloucester, the Asylum moved to these premises closer to the Old Kent Road, Southwark, in 1810, becoming an important national charity. Its model of patronage and governing committee did much to transform the operation of British charitable institutions. With contemporary hand colour.

[after Wenceslaus Hollar.]
London, Published Oct.r 11th 1810, By Rob.t Wilkinson, No 58, Cornhill, 170.
Coloured etching. Sheet 305 x 240mm (12 x 9½"). Slight surface soiling.
Despite being named on Hollar's famous 'Long View' as 'The Globe', this is in fact the Hope Theatre (built where the Bear Baiting ring had been). The real Globe was named 'Beere bayting' and is not shown here. Hollar's mistake can be accounted for by the fact that both had been shut down by the Puritans in 1642, and the Globe had been demolished the year before his view was published.

Soon after this view was published the Greenland whalers started using the dock and blubber boiling houses were built to render oil and the docks were renamed 'Greenland Dock'. Greenland Dock is the oldest of London's riverside wet docks, located in Rotherhithe in the area of the city now known as Docklands.

Hand coloured aquatint with large margins. Platemark: 240 x 285mm (9½ x 11¼").
The King's Bench Prison was a situated in Southwark, south London, England, from medieval times until it closed in 1880. It took its name from the King's Bench court of law in which cases of defamation, bankruptcy and other misdemeanours were heard; as such, the prison was often used as a debtor's prison until the practice was abolished in the 1860s. In 1842, it was renamed the Queen's Prison, and later became the Southwark Convict Prison. A game of rackets is taking place on left. Published in Ackermann's famous work, the 'Microcosm of London', the figures were drawn by the famous caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson and the architecture by Augustus Pugin.

Hand coloured aquatint with large margins. Platemark: 240 x 285mm (9½ x 11¼"). Few nicks in margins.
The courtyard of the King's Bench Prison in St George's Fields, Southwark, London, with inmates playing a game of rackets on the far left. The prison, which took its name from the King's Bench court of law in which cases of defamation, bankruptcy and other misdemeanours were heard, was mainly occupied by debtors, some of the most famous of whom included King Theodore I of Corsica and Tobias Smollett. In 1768 the imprisonment of John Wilkes (for libel) triggered riots in which several people were killed. This building was burnt to the ground in the 1780 Gordon Riots, and quickly rebuilt. By the time this print was made, the prison had become notorious for the laxity of its rules (an 1828 description would call it 'the most desirable place of incarceration in London' and by that time there were thirty gin shops and a host of trades being practiced in the courtyard). The prison was demolished in 1880. Published in Ackermann's famous work, the 'Microcosm of London', which probably selected the prison to depict because of its comparative comfort. The figures were drawn by the famous caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson and the architecture by Augustus Pugin.

[Engraved by Frederick Birnie and Henry Aston Barker after Robert Barker, 1792-3]
Etching and aquatint with hand-colouring, sheet approx 465 x 1100mm (18¼ x 43¼"). Some staining.
Two of the six sheets comprising Henry Barker's famous true panorama from Albion Mills, Southwark, looking across East and South East London, with the mill's chimneys in the foreground. Having already produced a panorama of Edinburgh, in 1790-91 Barker sent his son Henry Aston to draw the view from the Albion Mills on the south side of Blackfriars Bridge, which he enlarged and painted on the dome of 'The Panorama', the world's first building built specifically to display panoramas. Situated on the north side of Leicester Square, the building is now a French Catholic Church, 'Notre Dame de France', in Leicester Place. The painting was exhibited the following year and was praised by Sir Joshua Reynolds. This printed souvenir was published on six sheets 1792-3. Already the mill had burned down, an event recorded in the 'Microcosm of London' as 'Fire in London'.
