[Abingdon Old Gaol] View of the New County Prison, at Abingdon, Berks.
[Abingdon Old Gaol] View of the New County Prison, at Abingdon, Berks.
Drawn by W. Waite. Engraved by H. Meyer.
[n.d., c.1810.]
Rare aquatint. 420 x 485mm (16½ x 19"). Narrow bottom margin, small tear entering inscription area.
A view of Abingdon Old Gaol, probably published before the prison opened in 1812. Taken from the banks of the Thames (with an angler), it also shows Abingdon Bridge. On the opposite side is a wharf, with a barge, scale beam and crane. The gaol was built by Daniel Harris (c. 1761-1840), the Surveyor and Gaoler of Oxford Prison, and Sir Jeffry Wyatville RA (1766-1840), architect who worked on alterations for both Chatsworth House and Windsor Castle. It was largely superseded by the larger prison at Reading (1844) and closed in 1868. After being used as a grain store, slum dwellings and a leisure centre, it has now been converted into flats.

The Aqueduct at Barton in Lancashire.
The Aqueduct at Barton in Lancashire. Built by His Grace the Duke of Bridgewater.
Drawn on the Spot by Wm Orme of Manchester for which he obtaind the Larger Silver Pallet from the Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce.
[Published by Daniel and William Orme, n.d., c.1793.]
Etching and aquatint, open letter proof[?], image 395 x 525mm. Trimmed to plate on three sides, into plate at bottom.
The Barton Aqueduct, built by James Brindley (1716 - 1772), one of the earliest English engineers, to allow the Bridgewater Canal to cross the River Irwell. Having been called in by the Duke of Bridgewater (to whom this print is dedicated) in 1759 to advise upon the project for forming a canal by which the produce of the Worsley coal-mines could be cheaply transported to Manchester, Brindley produced a plan of striking originality. This included the construction of the aqueduct in 1761. This canal, suggested to the Duke of Bridgewater by the Grand Canal of Languedoc, was the first of any importance in England, and formed the commencement of the system of inland navigation in this country. Brindley seems to have laid out, or superintended, the construction of over 365 miles of canals. The most important of these was the Trent and Mersey canal, known as the Grand Trunk. The aqueduct was replaced with the current swing aqueduct when the Manchester Ship Canal was constructed because some sailing ships were unable to pass beyond the bridge. From a drawing by William Orme (1771 - 1854; active), landscape and transparency painter, and brother of Daniel and Edward Orme. This plate published under the title 'View of the celebrated aqueduct at Barton in Lancashire' with dedication to the Duke of Norfolk, President of the Society, on August 26th 1793. Very rare.

A view of the remarkable suspension bridge over the River Tweed between Horncliffe in Northumberland and Fishwick, Berwickshire, with an angler in the foreground. When it opened it was the longest wrought iron suspension bridge in the world; it is now the oldest suspension bridge still carrying road traffic. Captain Samuel Brown (1776-1852) championed the Royal Navy's use of chain link cables to replace unreliable hemp ropes in rigging. Leaving the navy he set up a chain-making company which provided the navy with chain until 1916. He also provided chain for Brunel's SS Great Eastern: the famous photograph of Brunel by Robert Howlett includes these chains. In 1817 he took out a patent titled the 'Construction of a Bridge by the Formation and Uniting of its Component Parts'. In 1819 he started building this bridge, with the help of John Rennie on the masonry, finishing in less than a year. In 1823 he built the Chain Pier in Brighton. In 1838 Brown was knighted by Queen Victoria. An unusual example, not finished with hand colour as expected.
