        Broadside. Begins, "Of all the strange and unaccountable things which have appeared during the present electioneering campaign, the Federal Bucktail Address, which has lately been put into circulation is the most so.".

      New York state: no publisher/printer Folio (34 cm, 12.75"). [1] f. (verso blank).. 1820 A wall posting of the Democratic-Republican party supporting incumbent DeWitt Clinton for Governor of New York in the 1820 elections against Vice-President Daniel D. Tompkins, the candidate of the Tammany-Virginia wing of the party. The document is a direct reply to the anti-Clinton Federal Bucktail Address (signed on 14 April 1820) and its signatories, a group of 40 men known as the "high-minded Federalists." Named members include John Duer and Rufus King. Of particular interest is the author's contention that the group misrepresented the nature of their opposition to the War of 1812. Signed in type: "No Time Server. April 19th, 1820." Several lines of text at the base of the document are headed "The Seminole Federalists," an unflattering soubriquet given to the faction of Federalists who opposed the Clinton administration. This section is signed in type, "Red-Jacket. As issued, with some later folds. Inch-long tear within first line of text, costing one word and portions of two or three letters, without affecting sense. Tear above center fold snaking five lines of text, touching letters from seven words without costing any text. Thumbnail-sized chip in center, affecting portions of three lines and costing several complete words but little sense. Lightly foxed.

        Braia dos mineros a Rio- Janeiro

      Artist: Engelmann Godefroy; Issued in: Paris; date: c 1820 - Artist: Engelmann, Godefroy; Issued in: Paris; date: c. 1820; - Condition: ; View of the harbour of Rio de Janeiro.Godefroy Engelmann was a 19th-century Franco-German lithographer and chromolithographer. Godefroy Engelmann was born in 1788 in MŸhlhausen, a small town near the France/Switzerland/Germany border. At the time of his birth Mulhouse was a free German republic associated with the Swiss Confederation, but was annexed by France 10 years later. He died in that same town in 1839, from a tumor in his neck. Engelmann trained in Switzerland and France at La Rochelle and Bordeaux, and he studied painting and sketching in Jean-Baptiste RegnaultÕs atelier in Paris. In the summer of 1814 he travelled to Munich, Germany to study lithography, a German invention. The following spring, he founded La SociŽtŽ Lithotypique de Mulhouse. In June 1816 he opened a workshop in Paris. Engelmann is largely credited with bringing lithography to Franc and later, commercializing chromolithography. In 1837 he was granted an English patent for a process of chromolithography that provided consistently high-quality results. Throughout his life, he produced large numbers of prints, including numerous plates for Baron Isidore Justin SŽverin Taylor's celebrated collection of lithographs, ÇVoyages pittoresques et romantiques dans lÕancienne FranceÈ. Engelmann's Paris printing company, Engelmann et Graf was passed on to his son, Godefroy Engelmann II (born 1819), who carried on his father's work with the same high artistic quality until his own death in 1897.

In the foreground ships at the lake MŠlaren.After the Ice Age, at around 8,000 BC, there had already been vast migrations towards the present-day Stockholm area, but as temperatures dropped, inhabitants moved away towards the South. Thousands of years later, as the ground thawed, the climate became tolerable, and the lands became fertile, some life moved back to the North. At the intersection of the Baltic Sea and lake MŠlaren is an archipelago site where the Old Town of Stockholm was first occupied in about 1000 AD by Vikings. Vikings had a positive trade impact on the land because of the trade routes they created.

Each issue contains essays or translations on a wide variety of subjects, e.g., astronomy, literature, technology, art, history, economics, and philosophy. There is a good deal of scathing comment on current events, particularly in Portugal and England.One essay (no. 5, pp. 351-5) is an @attack on bibliomania, with an account of the founding and early history of the Roxburghe Club. "What good is an old book, badly printed in Gothic type?" demands Macedo. "No good at all." Macedo, so vehement on the subject of book collecting, was expelled from the Augustinian Order for - among other misdemeanors - the systematic theft of books.The editor of the @Jornal, José Agostinho de Macedo (1761-1831), was a prolific writer of prose and verse, best known for his pamphleteering: "Ponderous and angry like a lesser Samuel Johnson, he bullies and crushes his opponents in the raciest vernacular . his idiomatic and vigorous prose will always be read with pleasure" (Bell, @Portuguese Literature p. 282). Macedo was also well known for his arrogance in literary matters: he condemned as worthless Homer's poems, which he had never read in the original, and believed his own epic @Gama, 1811 (reworked and published as @O Oriente, 1814), could have taught Camões how @Os Lusiadas should have been written. Toward the end of his life Macedo became Court preacher and chronicler, and a friend of D. Miguel.*** Innocêncio IV, 109, 192 and XII, 178-9: without collation or number of issues. @Grande enciclopédia XIV, 317: mentions this work with the date 1820, giving no further information. @Greenlee Catalogue I, 705: calls for the same number of issues as our copy.

        Il Carnevale di Roma.

      Ivi, Francesco Bourlié, 1820, - in-folio oblungo (mm370x560), serie completa di 20 stupende incisioni in rame in bianco e nero. La prima tavola porta nella parte superiore il breve titolo generale. Conservata in un elegante legatura moderna in mezzo marocchino granata, titolo in oro sul piatto anteriore, piatti in tela grigia. H.Moerner (Stockolm 1794-Paris 1837), ufficiale delle guardie reali di Svezia, fu pittore e incisore, soggiornò a Roma, riprese dal vero e incise queste animatissime fedeli scene ed i costumi del caratteristico Carnevale romano in uno stile più raffinato di quello del Pinelli. Le venti belle tavole, si sviluppano in orizzontale e potevano essere riunite assieme per decorare le pareti di un 'gabinetto', come l'autore suggerisce nella prefazione. La maggior parte degli esemplari a colori offerti sul mercato sono in realtà colorati in epoca posteriore.

        [in Hebrew characters, transliterated at] Doz Nayye` Te`stame`nt fon De`m Me`ssyas.

      "In 1820 the London Society for Promoting Christianity amongst the Jews (commonly known as the London Jews Society, or the L.J.S.) -- founded in 1809 -- undertook to supply German-speaking Jews with copies of the German Scriptures in Rabbinic character. With this object it employed Judah D'Allemand to transliterate Luther's version of the N.T., using Von Meyer's Frankfort edition of 1819" (Darlow & Moule). We have to admit that there is considerable disagreement as to whether the language of this N.T. is Yiddish, Judeo-German, or merely German in Hebrew characters. Different libraries have catalogued it differently; the majority say Yiddish. We take the middle ground of Judeo-German, that is, German-based Yiddish rather than Polish Yiddish. To us, this makes sense as the LJS published a Polish Yiddish N.T. the next year (i.e., 1821). Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate fewer than ten U.S. libraries reporting ownership.

        Der Heilige Georg tötet den Drachen.

      - Bleistift, auf grautonigem Papier, rechts unten monogrammiert und datiert „825 GF (ligiert)", unter der Darstellung bezeichnet „Entwurf zum ersten Altarbild für einen Grafen Erdödi in Ungarn". 22,8:18 cm. Literatur: Thieme/Becker, Bd. XII, S. 77. In dem eigenhändigen Werkverzeichnis wird das Altarbild „St. Georg" an erster Stelle aufgeführt. Flatz bildete sich ab 1820 an der Wiener Akademie der bildenden Künste bei Franz Caucig (1755-1828) und Anton Petter (1781-1858) aus. 1827 kehrte er nach Vorarlberg zurück. 1829-1833 hielt er sich gemeinsam mit seinem Malerfreund Libertat Hundertpfund (1806-1878) in Innsbruck auf, wo er mit Bildnisaufträgen beschäftigt war. Noch 1833 reiste er nach Rom, wo er fünf Jahre blieb. Diese Jahre waren für ihn künstlerisch entscheidend, denn durch den Verkehr mit Friedrich Overbeck (1789-1869) wurde er ganz für die Kunst der Nazarener gewonnen. 1838 kehrte er nach Wien zurück und ehelichte dort Maria Felicitas von Foullon-Norbeck und übersiedelte mit ihr nach Innsbruck. 1840 reiste er aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nach Frascati in den Albaner Bergen. In den folgenden Jahren gewann Flatz in den Künstler- und katholischen Kreisen bedeutendes Ansehen, das jenem Overbecks fast gleichkam, schuf zahlreiche Werke, erhielt bei der Ausstellung für kirchliche Kunst 1870 einen Preis. Nach der Besetzung Roms kehrte er 1871 nach Bregenz zurück, wo er bis zu seinem Tode ansässig blieb. Flatz war seit Angelika Kauffmann (1741-1807) das bedeutendste Malertalent in Vorarlberg. Neben den Esterházy werden die Erdödy zu den bedeutendsten Kunstförderern in Ungarn gezählt.

        Veduta dell'entrata del Porto di Livorno presa dalla parte del mare. Dedicata al Nobil Uomo Sig. Gio. Francesco Spannocchi Piccolomini, Cavaliere dell'Insigne ordine di Santo Stefano..

      Livorno, presso Pietro Ciardi, 1820 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 42 x 52,5 (alla lastra) più margini. Bella e importante veduta animata del porto della città di Livorno incisa dal W. F. Gmelin, sono visibili la fortezza vecchia e parte della città, le colline sullo sfondo. L'autore (Badenweiler, 1760 ?" Roma, 1820), incisore di Scuola tedesca, allievo della buona scuola di Christian van Mechel a Basilea. Il suo apprendistato incisorio fu rivolto al versante del paesaggio, ma anche del ritratto e della stampa architettonica. Il trasferimento a Roma, nel 1787, in corrispondenza con l'inizio della stagione dell'incisione neoclassica in Italia, ne orienterà invece definitivamente gli esiti in direzione paesaggistica, facendo della sua attività grafica ed editoriale un importante fattore di raccordo fra la tradizione locale e le nuove influenze cosmopolite di direzione più apertamente romantica. In questo fu determinante l'influenza di Jacob Philipp Hackert, il quale, l'anno successivo, lo invitò a raggiungerlo a Napoli per tradurre a stampa alcuni suoi dipinti con vedute di Baia e Pozzuoli. Ma il soggiorno napoletano era destinato a concludersi già nel 1790, quando il Gmelin tornò a Roma col progetto di iniziare in proprio un'attività di incisore ed editore, che fu assai valida. Esemplare in margini e in ottimo stato di conservazione.

        IVANHOE; A Romance. By "The Author of Waverley," &c.

      Edinburgh Archibald Constable and Co. 1820 - 3 volumes. First Edition, with all half-titles present, and the three pages of ads in Vol. III, page 159 numbered correctly. 8vo, contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards, the spines with double gilt ruled bands separating the compartments a red morocco lettering pieces to each volume, stamped in gilt. [vi] xxxiii, [blank] 298; [iv], 327; [iv], 371, [blank], 3 ads pp. A handsome set, well preserved in its original bindings, now with sympathetic rebacking incorporating the original morocco lettering labels, internally quite clean, and with a little evidence of age, the contemporary bindings with some light expected age or use evidence at the extremities. FIRST EDITION OF THIS SCARCE AND HIGHLY IMPORTANT WORK. This set with all half-titles and the ads present as is often not the case. The best of Scott’s historical novels and by far his most famous work. This was Scott's culminating success in a book-selling sense, and marked the highest point both of his literary career and his social prosperity." He was already considered to be the inventor of the historical novel and the success of his Waverley series was immediate and long lasting throughout the English speaking world. Sir Walter Scott’s romantic tale of the conflict between the Normans and the Saxons is among the most highly regarded works of historical fiction. Among other things, it is one of the earliest tales to so closely associate the legendary figure of Robin Hood as playing a major role in the removal or Prince John from the throne he had stolen from his half-brother Richard the Lionhearted. The collimation of the tale is, in essence, the birth of modern Britain. Yet in spite of the grand nature of the events, Ivanhoe is largely a tale of love- Man and women, father and daughter, king and country. First editions of Sir Walter Scott’s heroic tale are becoming as hard to find as Prince John’s heart. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Johann Andreas Naumann's. Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands, nach eigenen Erfahrungen entworfen. herausgegeben von dessen Sohne Johann Friedrich Naumann.

      - Leipzig, E. Fleischer, 1820-1844 (volumes 1-12); Stuttgart, Hoffmann, (1860), (volume 13). 13 volumes bound in 12. Royal-8vo (222 x 145mm). With 3 engraved portraits (J.A. Naumann, C.L. Nitzsch and J.F. Naumann), 9 (5 handcoloured) engraved frontispieces, 1 engraved anatomical plate and 391 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary brown half calf, richly gilt decorated spines, marbled sides (last volume hinges splitting). The first comprehensive account of the avi-fauna of Germany. This edition is quite distinctive from Johann Andreas Naumann's work "Naturgeschichte der Land- und Wasser- Vögel des nördlichen Deutschlands und angränzender Länder', of 1795-1817, although this earlier book laid the foundation for the later one.To honour his father, Johann Friederich Naumann put the name of Johann Andreas Naumann at the beginning of the title. Johann Friedrich Naumann (1780-1857) was a German ornithologist and engraver/artist and is regarded as the founder of scientific ornithology in Germany."In fact the son had begun on a much wider scale and had incorporated only fragments of the original. Brehm, who was hard to please, called it 'splendid' in his long review of the second and third volumes of his 'Ornis' in 1824: 'The younger Mr. Naumann is, like his father, a born naturalist, for he possesses the eagerness that fears no obstacles and does not cool during difficult and protracted investigations, the gift of observation that catches what thousands have overlooked. and finally the skill that understands how to classify and expound what has been discovered'".'Noch heute ist sie, hist. betrachtet, ein Gegenstand weltweiter Bewunderung. Mit dem Titel des Werkes verbindet sich zugleich ein rührendes Zeugnis von Verehrung für den väterlichen Lehrmeister; des Sohn nannte es 'Johann Andreas N.s Naturgesch.' und zeigte sich damit von Anfang an bereit, zugunsten des Vaters bescheiden hinter seinem Werk zurückzutreten (Gebhardt p. 256). "Johann Friedrich Naumann gilt als der erste bedeutende Ornithologe Deutschlands. Geboren 1780 in Ziebigk bei Köthen, Sachsen-Anhalt, gestorben 1857 ebendort, legte er im Laufe seines Lebens eine Sammlung von mehr als 700 einheimischen Vögeln in ca. 350 Arten an, die er in speziell hergestellten Glasvitrinen ausstellte. Die Sammlung Naumanns wurde 1821 von Herzog Ferdinand Friedrich von Anhalt Köthen für 2000 Reichstaler in Gold gekauft und in den Ausstellungsräumen im "Neuen Schloss" von Naumann um viele weitere exotische Vogelarten erweitert. Neben seinen wissenschaftlichen Leistungen beeindrucken heute noch immer die natürliche Schönheit seiner Vogelbilder und die erstaunliche Kreativität seiner Sprache. Fünfundzwanzig Jahre hat Naumann an seiner zwölfbändigen "Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands" gearbeitet. Das Werk, dessen letzter Band 1844 publiziert wurde, war auf dem Stand der damaligen Wissenschaft, alle 380 Illustrationen hat Naumann selbst gezeichnet und in Kupfer gestochen" (Arnulf Conradi). As the work was published over a very long period complete copies are of utmost rarity.The plates (1-93) of the first 3 volumes have very strong off-setting from the text unto the plates, the other volumes have not been affected. For this reason our set has been very reasonably priced. The plates are beautifully handcoloured. A nice uniformly bound set.Nissen IVB, 666; Anker 355; Schlenker 248.2. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Catalogue of the Library at Eshton Hall, in the County of York.

      [Catalogued by Robert Triphook]. xi, 308 pp. 8vo, orig. edition binding of straight-grained morocco-backed brown boards (corners a bit rounded), flat spine gilt. London: R. Triphook, 1820. "Forty Copies Printed." This is the extremely rare first catalogue of Miss Currer's library and the second copy I have handled. The second edition was issued in an edition of 100 copies in 1833; one sees it from time to time. Miss Currer (1785-1861), lived a secluded life at Eshton Hall, where, from an early age, she immersed herself in books. Having inherited two large estates, she enjoyed ample resources to form a large and important library, ultimately collecting about 20,000 books and important manuscripts. "Miss Currer's library...contained many rarities. It was rich in natural science, topography, antiquities, and history. There was a fair collection of Greek and Latin classics...The books were all in choice condition, many with fine bindings."-D.N.B., V, pp. 340-41. Of her library, Dibdin wrote "I may fairly and honestly say, that with the exception of Althorpe, Chatsworth and Stowe, I know of no such collection of books situated in the country, which can pretend to break a lance with it." Fine copy. Inscribed on the free front endpaper by Miss Currer to "Cooper Preston Esqr. with Miss Currer's Compts." With Preston's signature, dated 1821, on the front pastedown. Bookplate of A.R.A. Hobson. ❧ Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, cols. 612-13. De Ricci, pp. 141-43. .

        Experiments on the Effect of a Current of Electricity on the Magnetic Needle" In Annals of Philosophy, Volume XVI [16], July-December 1820, pp. 273-276

      FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF OERSTED'S 1820 DISCOVERY OF ELECTROMAGNETISM, opening "a new epoch in the history of physics" (DSB, 10, 185). "Its importance cannot be overestimated" (Norman, Part III, 1221). Hans Christian Oersted's paper, first published in 1820 as a small Latin pamphlet Experiemnta circa effectum conflictus electrici in acum magneticum, laid the foundation for the subsequent revolution in physics and the work of Ampère, Faraday, and then Maxwell's theory of electromagnetic radiation. Within a few months of publication, the paper was translated into several languages. Realizing the importance of the English translation, Oersted did the translation himself. In 1820 and although most scientists thought electricity and magnetism were not related, there were some reasons to think there might be a connection. For instance, it had long been known that a compass, when struck by lightning, could reverse polarity. Oersted had previously noted a similarity between thermal radiation and light, though he did not determine that both are electromagnetic waves and seems to have believed that electricity and magnetism were forces radiated by all substances. "During a lecture demonstration, on April 21, 1820, while setting up his apparatus, Oersted noticed that when he turned on an electric current by connecting the wire to both ends of the battery, a compass needle held nearby deflected away from magnetic north, where it normally pointed… The audience didn't even notice. But it was clear to Oersted that something significant was happening.  "Some have suggested that this was a totally accidental discovery, but accounts differ on whether the demonstration was designed to look for a connection between electricity and magnetism, or something else entirely. Certainly Oersted was well-prepared to observe such an effect, with the compass needle and the battery (or "galvanic apparatus," as he called it) on hand.  "Whether completely accidental or at least somewhat expected, Oersted was intrigued by his observation. He didn't immediately find a mathematical explanation, but he thought it over for the next three months, and then continued to experiment, until he was quite certain that an electric current could produce a magnetic field (which he called an "electric conflict"). "His battery, a voltaic pile using 20 copper rectangles, probably produced an emf of about 15-20 volts. He tried various types of wires, and still found the compass needle deflected. When he reversed the current, he found the needle deflected in the opposite direction. He experimented with various orientations of the needle and wire [noting] that the effect couldn't be shielded by placing wood or glass between the compass and the electric current.  "On July 21, 1820, Oersted published his results in a pamphlet… His results were mainly qualitative, but the effect was clear-an electric current generates a magnetic force.  "The publication caused an immediate sensation… Others began investigating the newly found connection between electricity and magnetism… Ampère developed a mathematical law to describe the magnetic forces between current carrying wires… A decade after Oersted's discovery, Faraday demonstrated essentially the opposite of what Oersted had found-that a changing magnetic field induces an electric current. Following Faraday's work, Maxwell developed Maxwell's equations, formally unifying electricity and magnetism" (APS Portal). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Baldwin, Cradock & Joy.

        Johann Andreas Naumann's... Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands, nach eigenen Erfahrungen entworfen... herausgegeben von dessen Sohne Johann Friedrich Naumann.

      Leipzig, E. Fleischer, 1820-1844 (volumes 1-12); Stuttgart, Hoffmann, (1860), (volume 13). 13 volumes bound in 12. Royal-8vo (222 x 145mm). With 3 engraved portraits (J.A. Naumann, C.L. Nitzsch and J.F. Naumann), 9 (5 handcoloured) engraved frontispieces, 1 engraved anatomical plate and 391 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary brown half calf, richly gilt decorated spines, marbled sides (last volume hinges splitting). The first comprehensive account of the avi-fauna of Germany. This edition is quite distinctive from Johann Andreas Naumann's work "Naturgeschichte der Land- und Wasser- Vögel des nördlichen Deutschlands und angränzender Länder', of 1795-1817, although this earlier book laid the foundation for the later one./To honour his father, Johann Friederich Naumann put the name of Johann Andreas Naumann at the beginning of the title. Johann Friedrich Naumann (1780-1857) was a German ornithologist and engraver/artist and is regarded as the founder of scientific ornithology in Germany. /"In fact the son had begun on a much wider scale and had incorporated only fragments of the original. Brehm, who was hard to please, called it 'splendid' in his long review of the second and third volumes of his 'Ornis' in 1824: 'The younger Mr. Naumann is, like his father, a born naturalist, for he possesses the eagerness that fears no obstacles and does not cool during difficult and protracted investigations, the gift of observation that catches what thousands have overlooked... and finally the skill that understands how to classify and expound what has been discovered'"./'Noch heute ist sie, hist. betrachtet, ein Gegenstand weltweiter Bewunderung. Mit dem Titel des Werkes verbindet sich zugleich ein rührendes Zeugnis von Verehrung für den väterlichen Lehrmeister; des Sohn nannte es 'Johann Andreas N.s Naturgesch...' und zeigte sich damit von Anfang an bereit, zugunsten des Vaters bescheiden hinter seinem Werk zurückzutreten (Gebhardt p. 256). "Johann Friedrich Naumann gilt als der erste bedeutende Ornithologe Deutschlands. Geboren 1780 in Ziebigk bei Köthen, Sachsen-Anhalt, gestorben 1857 ebendort, legte er im Laufe seines Lebens eine Sammlung von mehr als 700 einheimischen Vögeln in ca. 350 Arten an, die er in speziell hergestellten Glasvitrinen ausstellte. Die Sammlung Naumanns wurde 1821 von Herzog Ferdinand Friedrich von Anhalt Köthen für 2000 Reichstaler in Gold gekauft und in den Ausstellungsräumen im "Neuen Schloss" von Naumann um viele weitere exotische Vogelarten erweitert. Neben seinen wissenschaftlichen Leistungen beeindrucken heute noch immer die natürliche Schönheit seiner Vogelbilder und die erstaunliche Kreativität seiner Sprache. Fünfundzwanzig Jahre hat Naumann an seiner zwölfbändigen "Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands" gearbeitet. Das Werk, dessen letzter Band 1844 publiziert wurde, war auf dem Stand der damaligen Wissenschaft, alle 380 Illustrationen hat Naumann selbst gezeichnet und in Kupfer gestochen" (Arnulf Conradi). As the work was published over a very long period complete copies are of utmost rarity./The plates (1-93) of the first 3 volumes have very strong off-setting from the text unto the plates, the other volumes have not been affected. For this reason our set has been very reasonably priced. The plates are beautifully handcoloured. A nice uniformly bound set./ /Nissen IVB, 666; Anker 355; Schlenker 248.2.

        Swiss Scenery From Drawings By.

      Published By Rodwell & Martin, London 1820 - First edition. 4to., recently rebound with a dark brown calf spine, marble boards, raised bands, gilt decoration in the compartments, leather spine label, vii, 200pp. With 60 engraved plates and an engraved titlepage. Titlepage a bit ragged around edges, some repairs to the last leaf (no loss to text, repairs are in the margins only), occasional foxing but still a near fine copy. James Pattison Cockburn [1779-1847] army officer and water-colourist. According to German composer Louis Spohr, to whom he showed more than 200 landscapes of Naples and its surroundings, Cockburn had ôextraordinary skill in catching charming views in a matter of minutes.ö He was becoming an indefatigable sketcher.In the period 1816û22 he produced drawings in sepia as he moved from place to place in the Alps and elsewhere in Italy and Switzerland: vast panoramas and mountain passes figured alongside scenes of streets and market places. The wealth of pictures is explained not only by CockburnÆs mastery of technical means but also, according to Spohr, by his use of ôa machine that projected the landscape, in reduced scale, on paper.ö Although it is not certain that Spohr was referring to a camera lucida, the sharpness of the images in several sketches done at the time he made his remark in some measure substantiates this hypothesis." In the 1820's Cockburn was posted to Upper and Lower Canada and "during these years of peace Cockburn had ample leisure to sketch Quebec and its environs as well as scenes in Upper and Lower Canada where his tours of inspection took him."
