An interior view of the Great Staircase in the British Museum, London. Montagu House was the first home of the British Museum. When it was built in 1686, the French style of decoration was fashionable. The walls of the Great Staircase and the ceiling above it were painted mainly by Charles de la Fosse (1636-1716). The painting on the ceiling illustrated a story from Greek mythology - Phaeton asking for permission to drive the chariot of the sun-god, Apollo. The Great Staircase led from the Entrance Hall (which was near the site of the present-day colonnade) to a landing on the first floor. From there visitors walked through the upper rooms, where they could see some of the Museum's collections of manuscripts, medals, antiquities and natural history specimens. 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.

The Cock Lane Ghost.
[n.d., c.1762.]
Etching. Sheet 90 x 150mm (3½ x 6"). With three wood engravings and seven 18th century newspaper clippings on the same subject. Trimmed to printed border, laid down and mounted over, laid on album paper.
Rare item. A man enters a room to be confronted by a ghostly woman. 'The Cock Lane Ghost' seemed to haunt William Kent, a usurer from Norfolk who, after his wife Elizabeth had died in childbirth, had taken up with his sister-in-law, Fanny. They moved to London as man and wife, and took lodgings in Cock Lane, in the house of Richard Parsons, a parish clerk. Kent loaned Parsons 12 guineas, to be repaid at a rate of a guinea per month. Then strange noises started to be heard in the house, after which a visitor reported seeing a ghostly white figure ascend the stairs. After a lull Fanny died of smallpox and the knockings resumed. With John Moore, rector of St Bartholomew-the-Great in West Smithfield, Parsons devised a method of communication with the spirit: one knock for yes, two knocks for no. The spirit suggested that the ghost that had scared the vistor was Elizabeth and the latest was Fanny, both of whom had been poisoned by William Kent. Thus Kent fell under public suspicion as a murderer but, protesting his innocence, allowed séances to be held, one attended by Prince Edward, Duke of York and Albany, 30th January 1762. Eventually a committee (including Samuel Johnson) declared the haunting a hoax, stating the knockings were caused by Parsons' daughter Elizabeth. They were sentenced in 1763.

Hand coloured aquatint with large margins. Platemark: 240 x 285mm (9½ x 11¼").
An interior view of the Painted Hall in Greenwich Hospital, London. The first of the principal buildings constructed for the hospital was the King Charles Court, famous for its baroque Painted Hall, which was painted by Sir James Thornhill in honour of King William III and Queen Mary II (the ceiling of the Lower Hall), of Queen Anne and her husband, Prince George of Denmark (the ceiling of the Upper Hall) and George I (the north wall of the Upper Hall). The Painted Hall was deemed too magnificent for the pensioned seamen's refectory and was never regularly used as such. On 5th January 1806, Lord Nelson's body lay in state in the Painted Hall of the Greenwich Hospital before being taken up the river Thames to St Paul's Cathedral for a state funeral. In 1824 a National Gallery of Naval Art was created in the Painted Hall, where it remained until 1936, when the collection was transferred to the National Maritime Museum, newly established in the Queen's House and adjacent buildings. 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.

Marylebone or Marybone Gardens was a London pleasure garden, officially opened as a venue for concerts and other entertainments in 1738 by Daniel Gough, the proprietor of the Rose of Normandy tavern on the east side of Marylebone High Street. Originally consisting of two bowling greens adjoining the tavern, its size was increased by acquisition of land from Marylebone Manor House.

From a series of reduced views in London, numbered '12a' upper right. After John Donowell (1753 - 1786; fl.).
