[Collection of four ink mss. sailing directions, three ink sketches and a pencil sketch, from the collection of Sir Graham Hamond.]
[Various dates, 1815-1854.]
8 sheets, various hands, largest 325 x 200mm (12¾ x 8"). Some staining.
The sailing directions relate to the work of Trinity House (the institution in charge of Britain's lighthouses) on navigational buoys. One sheet, bearing their address as sender and dated 28th August 1815, describes two buoys near Selsey Bill; the same text was published by Trinity House on 23rd May 1818 and recorded in Norie's 'New and complete sailing directions for the east coast of England'. The ink sketches (in the same hand) detail parts of a wooden ship. The pencil sketch, signed '[**] Hammond Dec. 30 /54', depicts two ships under sail with a town in the background. From the collection of Sir Graham Hamond (1779-1862), a Royal Naval officer who appears in Mather Brown's painting of the Battle of the Glorious First of June (1794), at which he served as a young midshipman. He continued to serve throughout the Napoleonic wars, including the Battle of Copenhagen and the siege of French-held Malta. He died less than a month after being promoted to full admiral.
