Also depicted in some detail are St. James's Palace, Carlton House (with a splendid series of now-vanished interiors created for the Prince Regent by Holland with Wyatt and Nash as architects), Kensington Palace, Hampton Court, Buckingham House (including a view of the east front as it was a century before Aston Webb's drastic remodelling carried out in 1913), and Frogmore as remodeled by Wyatt.

"In 1815 the African Company planned a mission to the Asante, and initially contemplated appointing Bowdich to lead it. On reaching Cape Coast Castle the second time, he was judged too young and Frederick James (governor of Fort Accra) was appointed to lead the expedition. In the course of the journey, however, Bowdich superseded his chief (a bold step afterwards sanctioned by the authorities), and, through negotiations which subsequently proved controversial, formed a treaty with the king of the Asante, which promised peace to the British settlements on the Gold Coast in return for commerci … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sir Charles Edmund Isham, 10th Baronet (16 December 1819 - 7 April 1903), has been referred to as the most 'eccentric' member of the Isham family of Lamport Hall, Northamptonshire. Isham was a lover of nature and took a keen interest in animals gardening—the latter inspired by the works of the landscape gardener and horticulturalist John Claudius Loudon—as well as an advocate of vegetarianism and organic, unprocessed foods. His work, The Food that we Live on shows an interest in the health consequences of food additives and processing. Isham was a spiritualist and a believer in fairies—he installed an early Alpine rockery at Lamport Hall and was famously the first person to import and install garden gnomes in this garden. Only one of the original 21 gnomes first imported from Germany survives, and is known as 'Lampy'. All the following works are extremely rare, the majority not listed by Copac and those that are are known by only one or two copies. A. EPHEMERA. Scrapbook album compiled by Sir Charles Isham, 4to, 90 pages of cuttings, photographs and watercolours showing various things which Isham found interesting, including photographs of, "The astonishing Tooth-drawer", 1876, who would operate on patients with umbrellas, images of starving families pasted next to the heaviest man in the world, 2 watercolours of the "Residence of Margaret Dingwall Kilmur near Dunvegan Isle of Skye" and a photograph of a giant crane, labelled "most comical photo ever produced", green morocco gilt; and some other items of ephemera such as original sketches and samples of hand-coloured lithog … [Click Below for Full Description]

Although the German advance was impressive, they failed to destroy the Allied armies in their path, and the Americans and French were able to mount a counterattack on July 17 that drove the Germans back to their original lines by August 4. The presence of fresh American troops, who unlike their British and French counterparts, were not exhausted by years in the trenches and proved critical to the counterattack's success.The present map was part of a collection kept by General Robert C.

HOARE, Sir Richard Colt.
London, J. Mawman,~ 1819. Two volumes, 8vo. Contemporary half-calf over marbled boards, rebacked with contrasting lettering-pieces to spines; pp. [iii]-xiii, [3], 395; [iv], 358, [6], folding map of Sicily, bound without half-titles; a little browned, otherwise a very clean copy; ownership inscriptions of Jane Panton to titles. Richard Colt was a wealthy landowner and indefatigable Continental traveler, artist and antiquary. He had spent a good deal of the second half of the 1780s in Europe. 'After a brief return home Colt Hoare resumed his travels in 1788, 'no longer as a tourist but as a systematic antiquarian ... quitting ... the road for the path, the capital for the provinces' (R. C. Hoare, A Classical Tour through Italy and Sicily, 1819, x). He passed through the Netherlands, Germany, Venice, and Florence and finally settled in Siena. He sought to locate the major sites of the Etruscan civilization, then explored the Appian way with his sketchbook and returned south in order to visit the recently publicized Greek ruins at Paestum and those in Sicily. His romantic response to Italy was at once tempered and inflamed by a close interest in the classical authors, who turned his attraction into a passion; virtually nothing he saw was without resonance from a documented source' (ODNB).
