Joseph Tentsensky (1794 – 1839) was artist and printer in Vienna. In 1819 he founded, together with his brother Mathias Trentsensky (1790 - 1868) a lithographic printing and publishing house. They were specialised in publishing broadsides and other separately published prints. From 1820 Joseph was also the owner of a shop with writing and drawing accessories and in 1822 he received a patent for printing lithographs from zinc plates and seven years later for printing from wood blocks (xylography). This view was published in 'Wiens Mahler: Umgebungen' (Viennese pictorial surroundings) around 1825 by Trentsensky.

        Armenian girl.

      Second half of XIX c. - Charcoal and colored pencils on paper (29.5 x 19.8 cm), signed in left lower corner, laid on thicker contemporary paper, mounted, stamp "Coll. SB" to mount Good condition. A fine portrait of a young Armenian girl by the famed Russian artist. Féodor Petrovich Tchoumakoff (1823 - 1911) was born in St. Petersburg and was trained first at the St. Petersburg Theatre Arts Academy, and later at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts. The works he did during his studies earned high recognition from Karl Brüllov. After successfully graduating from the academy, he received a chance to take a study trip to Italy. In 1852 he was given an honorary academic title. Starting in 1857, Tchoumakoff lived and worked primarily in Paris. He exhibited at salon shows in Paris, while also sending his works to exhibitions at the St. Petersburg Academy of the Arts. Tchoumakoff was a fairly popular artist in the aristocratic circles of France and Russia. His works were purchased by, for example, the government of France and Czar Aleksander II. In 1866 the czar bestowed the Order of St. Anna III class on Tchoumakoff for the painting "The Saviour and the Rich Man", which he had purchased. Tchoumakoff worked in different techniques and genres: historical, genre scenes from life, portraits. Beginning in 1870 the artist primarily painted "little heads" ("golovki"), which bought Tchoumakoff fame as the "Russian Greuze" (French artist J.-B. Greuze, 1725-1805). Tchoumakoff's works can be found in the State Russian Museum, Moscow's Tretyakov Gallery, and in many other Russian and European museums as well as private collections. The drawing comes from a private collection of Sarkis Boghossian and was published in his monumental work "Armenian Iconography" that gathers ____ prints and drawings on the subject. Boghossian's biography resembles a plot of a thriller. Having been born in 1921 in a small Armenian village in today's Turkey, he was taken to Marseille at the age of six by his family that fled famine and oppression. Passionate about art, poetry and Armenian culture, Boghossian chose a career of bookseller. In 1967 he opened a rare bookshop in Paris, "Le XIXe siècle", specialising in rare books and engravings related to Armenia. In 1998 the French booksellers' community was shocked waking up to the news that Boghossian was found dead in his Parisian flat, tortured and murdered, with a number of valuable books missing from his apartment. Police quickly traced the murdered, who, however, hardly resembled the idea one may have of an assassin. He was a French bookseller of Turkish origin and a renowned scholar with a PhD from Sorbonne specialising in Ottoman and Armenian history. He was apparently in dispute with Boghossian over a number of rare books that the latter kept as a guarantee against a cash loan. The bookseller was arrested and subsequently sentenced to 19 years in prison just when he was due to give a lecture at a conference in Nice titled "The Armenian merchants in the Mediterranean in the eighteenth century".

        Gelungener Versuch einer Nasenbildung aus einem völlig getrennten Hautstück aus dem Beine (pp.569-582).

      Journ. Chir. Augenh., 4/4. - Hrsg. v. Graefe & Walther. - Berlin, im Verlag von G. Reimer, 1823, pp.569-767, 1 gefalt. Kupfertafeln, feiner Pappband. FIRST FREE SKIN TRANSPLANTATION. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. ERSTE AUSGABE. Im Jahre 1818 führte Bünger die erfolgreiche Transplantation eines freien Hautlappens vom Oberschenkel zum Nasenersatz durch. Die Anregungen zu seinem Vorgehen hatte Bünger aus Nachrichten von jenem indischen Verfahren der freien Hautverpflanzug gewonnnen. Bünger verwendete einen freien Lappen vom Oberschenkel, von dem er "über die Hälfte der Dicke von der zu starken Fetthaut wegzunehmen für nöthig fand". Der Bünger'sche Lappen enthält also Oberhaut, Lederhaut und einen Teil des Unterhautfettgewebes. Der Lappen heilt bis auf den unteren Teil, aus dem Nasenspitze, Septum und Flügel entstehen sollten, gut an und vereinigt sich später mit gestielten Lappen vom Arm und Wange, die den letzten Defekt schließen. Diese durch den Marburger Anatomen u. Chirurgen erfolgte Anwendung einer freien Hauttransplantation bei einem Lupus der Nase war von epochemachender Bedeutung für die weitere Entwicklung der plastischen Chirurgie.The first successful modern attempt at free skin transplantation. He used the method to restore the nose of a woman who had suffered for fifteen years from a skin eruption that caused the loss of here nose and affected other areas of the face so that a forehead or cheek graft was inadvisable. Christian Heinrich Bünger (1782-1842) chose as a donar site the superior lateral surface of the upper thigh, taking an oval piece of skin four by three inches which he trimmed to shape and applied to the freshened nasal region one and a half hour after removal, a delay caused by attempts to stanch excessive bleeding in the freshened area. The graft was partially successful and a year later other procedures, carried out on the upper lip and nose with a flap from the arm, successfully brought further improvement of appearance. - Gnudi & Webster. Bünger's account appeared in the literature as an isolated case report, but it forms a tangible link in the historical chain of plastic, surgery.

        A larger-than-lifesize portrait photograph of Sir James Hurtle Fisher (1790-1875), 'one of the most important pioneers of South Australia' (Australian Dictionary of Biography)

      The very fine portrait (visible image size 545 x 395 mm, in its original ornate gilt frame, external dimensions 740 x 595 mm) is exquisitely hand-painted and signed by the famous photographer, Townsend Duryea (1823-1888). His original label is affixed to the paper backing on the verso of the frame ('T. Duryea, Artist Photographer, 66 and 68 King William Street, Adelaide'), and in our opinion, he has created a masterpiece as both artist and photographer with this work. James Hurtle Fisher commenced practice as a solicitor in London in 1816 and 'was drawn into the colonizing movement in 1835.... [He] was selected as resident commissioner, one of the most important offices under the South Australian Act ... second only to the governor'. Fisher 'left England in July 1836 with the governor's party in the "Buffalo", arriving on 28 December 1836 at Holdfast Bay, where the official oaths were administered, a proclamation was read and a ceremony marked the beginning of settlement. In January 1837 Fisher erected his reed hut and Land Office near the survey camp of Colonel William Light at the north-western corner of the new capital site; the destruction of these temporary buildings by fire on 23 January 1839 caused both men serious loss. Fisher had been allowed to draft his own instructions, which were not shown to Governor [Sir] John Hindmarsh. Disputes between the two men over their respective powers had begun on the voyage and were soon revived in the new Council of Government, and more violently outside, and led in February 1837 to the Resident Magistrate's Court binding the participants over to keep the peace towards each other.... The new governor, George Gawler, was appointed both governor and resident commissioner, a radical departure from the principles on which the colony had been founded' (ADB). Fisher returned to his profession, and became a leader of the South Australian Bar. In October 1840 he was elected first mayor of Adelaide; in 1860 he became the first resident South Australian to be knighted. Townsend Duryea was at the King William Street address from 1858 until his illustrious career as a photographer 'was cut short when his studio and entire collection of 50,000 negatives were destroyed by fire on 18 April 1875' (ADB). We suggest as a date for this magnificent portrait 'circa 1870'.

We learn from page 2: "When it is considered that works have been written on almost every subject connected with Agriculture?it appears rather singular that the various customs of valuing Rents and Tillages have scarcely been noticed in any of them. It is humbly presumed that this is the first work published expressly upon valuing Rents and Tillages." A very good copy. Signature of "Jenkin Jones Glyn Castle 1820" on free front endpaper. ?

        Bloemstilleven met tulpen - A.C. Cruys, 1823.

      Bloemstilleven, aquarel vervaardigd door A.C. Cruys, verso gesigneerd en gedateerd 1823. Afm. (papier): 27,6 x 21,1 cm.De Nederlandse schilderkunst staat van oudsher bekend om de fraaie bloemstillevens, die vanaf de zestiende eeuw vervaardigd werden. Maar al was het genre destijds razend populair onder de afnemers, het stond in kunstenaarskringen aanvankelijk niet in al te hoog aanzien. Het bloemstilleven als apart genre en specialisme ? sommige schilders beperkten zich hiertoe ? hield stand tot ver in de negentiende eeuw en werd toen meer als een typisch vrouwelijke kunstvorm beschouwd. Ook het moraliserende verhaalelement van vergankelijkheid (vanitas) speelde in de negentiende eeuw een beduidend kleinere rol dan voorheen, de weergave van de bloemen zelf is dan belangrijker dan de verborgen boodschap. Wist u overigens dat pas eind negentiende eeuw het vak van bloembinder en de bloemenwinkel ontstond?Prijs: ?1.450,- (incl. lijst).

      Ilmenau, Gedruckt und verlegt bey Bernhard Friedrich Voigt, 1823, 8, XVI, 438, (2) pp.,1 Kupferstichtafel, Halbleinenband der Zeit versch. Stempel auf Titel, Kupferstichtafel am Rand angeschnitten, ansonsten frisches und feines Exemplar. Ein belehrendes Handbuch für Sanitäts- und Polizeybeamte, prkatische Aerzte, Fabrikbesitzer, Professionisten und Gebildete aus allen Ständen. Nach dem Italienischen des Bernh. Ramazzini neubearbeitet von Ph. Patissier, Arzt etc. in Paris. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt, mit Vorrede und Zusätzen von Dr. Julius Heinrich Gottlieb Schlegel."Das Werk des als Lehrer zu Padua gestorbenen Bernhardino Ramazzini (de morbis artificum diatribe) erschien zum ersten Male im Jahre 1700 zu Modena. Vier Jahre später übersetzte es ein Ungenannter zu Leipzig ins Deutsche. Im Jahre 1713 wurde es wieder zu Padua gedruckt, und zwar um zwölf Capitel Vermehrt, und später in das Englische, Holländische, Französische und Italiänische übersetzt. -Philibert Patissier (1791-1863)"in Paris hob endlich aus dem, auch nach den Bearbeitungen Morgagni's, Fourcroy's und Ackermann's, dennoch manches Unnöthige und Irrige enthaltenden Werke Ramazzini's alles ihm wahrhaft nützlich Dünkende aus, und fügte die seit einem Jahrhunderte gemachten Entdeckungen und Beobachtungen hinzu, so daß das vorliegende Werk mehr Patissier's Eigenthum ist. Patissier theilt die Krankheiten der Künstler und Handwerker in drey Classen, und rechnet zu der ersten Classe die Krankheiten, welche von aufgelösten Theilen herrühren, die in Gestalt von Dunst oder Staub sich mit der atmosphärischen Luft vermischen, in die Organe des menschlichen Körpers eindringen, und so deren Verrichtungen stören zur zweyten Classe die Krankheiten, welche durch Feuchtigkeiten entstehen, und endlich in die dritte diejenigen Krankheiten, welche durch Uebermaß oder Mangel an Bewegung erzeugt werden.Die I Classe zerlegt er wieder in fünf Gattungen. Erste Gattung : Krankheiten aus mineralischen Dünsten oder Theilchen : der Bergleute, der Metallgießer u.s.w. Zweyte Gattung : Krankheiten durch animalische Dünste oder Theilchen : der Abtrittfeger, Abdecker, Lederarbeiter u.s.w. Dritte Gattung : Krankheiten aus vegetabilischen Dünsten oder Theilchen : der Bäcker, Tabaksfabricanten u.s.w. Vierte Gattung: Krankheiten, die durch die Dünfte oder Körpertheilchen aus den drey Reichen, dem Thier-,Pflanzen- und Mineral-Reiche, gemeinsam veranlaßt werden: der Chemiker u.s.w. Fünfte Gattung : Krankheiten, die durch Wollen- und Baumwollen-Theilchen entstehen: der Matrazenmacher, Kürschner u.f.w.Die III Classe wird in vier Gattungen zertheilt. Erste Gattung: Krankheiten, welche durch heftige Körperanstrengung oder mühvolle Arbeit veranlaßt werden : der Athleten, Läufer u.s.w. Zweyte Gattung : Krankheiten, welche aus allzuheftiger oder zu langer Anstrengung der Stimme entstehen : der Sänger, Prediger, Mönche, Nonnen, Redner, Professoren u.s.w. Dritte Gattung: Kr. durch zu große Anstrengung der Augen: der Uhrmacher, Juwelierer, Goldfehmiede u.s.w. Vierte Gattung: Krankheiten, welche durch Mangel an Bewegung oder durch eine fitzende Lebensart veranlaßt werden, durch Mangel an Bewegung in freyer Luft, durch ungesunde Wohnung, durch die bearbeiteten Stoffe, durch die mehr oder weniger beschwerliche Stellung des Körpers: der Waffenschmiede, Buchdrucker, Schneider u.s.w. Zu diesem Abschnitte gehört die Abbildung, welche Holdens Vorrichtung, die Schuhe stehend zu machen, versinnlicht.Das ausgezeichnete Werk des Franzofen hat durch die Zusätze des deutschen Uebersetzers bedeutend gewonnen, und Rec. fühlt sich verpflichtet, es allen Gebildeten dringend zu empfehlen."

        Historical Portraiture of Leading Events in the Life of Ali Pacha, Vizier of Epirus, Surnamed the Lion, in a Series of Designs ... With a Biographical Sketch.

      London: Howlett and Brimmer for Thomas M'Lean, '1823' [but one plate watermarked 1825]. Folio (366 x 267mm). Original salmon-pink linen-covered boards, upper board with letterpress title-label; pp. [8 (half-title, imprint on verso, title, verso blank, list of plates, verso blank, preface, verso blank)], [9]-30 (text), [2 (publisher's advertisement)]; 6 hand-coloured aquatint plates by G. Hunt after Davenport (one watermarked 'J. Whatman / 1825'), the first bound as a frontispiece; slightly rubbed and bumped at edges, upper board lightly marked, lower board more heavily ink-marked, hinges neatly reinforced, some light offsetting from plates onto text, some light browning and spotting, a few small marks, 2 plates with short marginal tears at gutter, one with small repair, otherwise a very good copy in the original cloth with bright and fresh colour. First and only edition. This beautifully-illustrated work offers a romanticised account of the life of the Albanian-born Ali Pasha (1741-1822), the Turkish pasha of Iannina, who was given the epithet Aslan, or 'The Lion'. Following the death of Ali's father at the hands of neighbouring chiefs who seized his lands, his mother Khamko raised a band of brigands in order to reclaim the territories, which her son did through cunning and bloodthirsty strategies, before starting his rise to power within the Ottoman Empire, which saw him become one of the most powerful viziers in the empire. As the Middle East became the subject of European interest, Ali's political manoeuvring and powermongering brought him into alliances with the French, the British and the Italians, and further enlarged his territories. However, the threat of his power finally provoked the jealous Sultan Mahmud II to send his army to besiege Ali upon a pretext, and (after two years of resistance) Ali was killed as he attempted to negotiate terms. The Encyclopaedia Britannica sums up Ali's life and the legends that grew up around him thus: 'Ali Pasha is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable, as he is one of the most picturesque, figures in modern history; and as such he was recognized in his own day. His court at Iannina was the centre of a sort of barbarous culture, in which astrologers, alchemists and Greek poets played their part, and was often visited by travellers. Amongst others, Byron came, and has left a record of his impressions in " Childe Harold's Pilgrimage," less interesting and vivid than the prose accounts of Pouqueville, T. S. Hughes and William M. Leake [...] To the wild people over whom he ruled [no apology for his policies] was needed. He had their respect, if not their love; he is the hero of a thousand ballads; and his portrait still hangs among the ikons in the cottages of the Greek mountaineers. All accounts agree in describing him in later life as a man of handsome presence, with a venerable white beard, piercing black eyes and a benevolent cast of countenance, the effect of which was heightened in conversation by a voice of singular sweetness'. The text of Historical Portraiture of Leading Events in the Life of Ali Pacha appears to have been derived from the first English edition of Alphonse de Beauchamp's Vie d'Ali-Pacha, visir de Janina, surnommé Aslan, ou Le Lion (Paris: 1822), which was translated anonymously as The Life of Ali Pacha of Janina, Vizier of Epirus (London: 1822), and complements the six remarkable coloured aquatints, which depict the following subjects: 'The Youthful Ali Bey, Shewn by his Mother to the Partisans and Vassals of his Father[']s House'; 'Ali Bey Discovers the Chest of Treasure, Near the Ruins of an Old Monastery in the Mountain'; 'The Vow of Vengeance, Made by Ali Pacha and his Sister Chaïnitza over the Dead Body of their Mother'; 'The Vizier Ali Pacha, Giving the Fatal Signal, for the Slaughter of the Gardikiotes Shut up in the Khan of Valiare'; 'The Delivery of the Broken Ring, to Ali Pacha's Faithful Slave in the Magazine of the Citadel'; and 'Ali Pacha and his Brave Officers, Resisting the Turkish Generals, Sent with the Death Firman to Demand the Vizier's Head'. This copy is in the original binding of pink linen covered boards, with the original title label, which is similar to the binding on the Abbey copy (however, the Atabey copy was bound in the 'original beige-grey paper boards', so there is at least one variant binding), and one plate is watermarked with a date of '1825', which is the date on the plates of the Abbey copy. Abbey, Travel, 206; Atabey 325; Blackmer 454 ('modern blue morocco gilt'); Prideaux p. 334; Tooley 179.

        Istoriia raznykh Slavenskikh narodov, naipache Bolgar, KHorvatov, i Serbov.

      V Budinom Grade, Tipografie Kralevskago Univers?teta Ungarskago, 1823. 8vo. Contemporary marbled boards with faded ms. lettering-piece on spine; pp. 843, with engraved frontispiece, 10 engraved portraits of rulers in the text, folding engraved map of the Balkans and 4 folding typographical genealogical tables at the end; binding with minor wear to extremities; title with old repair (loss of one letter), occasionally a little spotted, one text leaf with marginal paper flaw, otherwise a good copy; provenance: contemporary typographical bookplate of a Greek-Catholic monastery in Przemysl, South Eastern Poland, inside front cover, near contemporary private library stamp on title and at the end. Third edition of volume II (of 4, covering the 11th to 14th century) of the very rare first modern history of the Southern Slavs,first published in Vienna in 1794-5, then in St. Petersburg (1795). This work is a synthesis of all earlier Serbian historiographic literature and remained an important source for these interlinked national histories up to the end of the 19th century. The Serbo-Bulgarian writer, historian, traveller, and pedagogue Jovan Rajic (1726-1801) is considered one of the greatest Serbian academics of the 18th century. Born in the Vojvodina he walked to Kiev to study theology. After travelling over vast parts of Central and Eastern Europe he was rejected as teacher in his native country on theological grounds and travelled to Mount Athos via Constantinople were he researched in libraries and archives. He settled in Temesvar (now Romania) as a teacher of geography and rhetoric, where he began to write this historical opus magnum. He later became Archimandrite in the Serbian monastery of Kovilj, where he spent the rest of his life writing books on religion and theology. He wrote in Serbian, Russian, Latin, German, Hungarian and Old Slavonic and can be regarded as the Serbian pioneer of rationalism. - We were unable to find any evidence of this work, nor any part of it, having ever been in the trade; institutionally it is equally rare.

        Die Krankheiten der Künstler und Handwerker und die Mittel sich vor denselben zu schützen. ...

      Ilmenau, Gedruckt und verlegt bey Bernhard Friedrich Voigt, 1823, 8, XVI, 438, (2) pp.,1 Kupferstichtafel, feiner Halbledereinband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung und rotem Rückenschildchen feines Exemplar. The first edition was published in. Modena, 1700, and reprinted in Utrecht in 1703 - the SLS Library has one copy of the latter. A revised edition (Modena 1713) is the definitive one, containing many corrections to the first and a Supplement of twelve new chapters on trades previously undescribed. Apart from reprints there are twenty-five editions and translations published before the middle of the nineteenth Century. The latest English edition was published in New York in 1940. The Present, very rare, edition is the third German. Dreceded by editions of 1718 and 170-1783.Ramazzini's famous 'De morbis artificum diatriba' opened up an entirely new department of modern medicine, viz., trade diseases and industrial hygiene, and is the first book dealing adequately with occupational diseases.Ramazzini was professor of medicine at Modena and at Padua until his death in 1714. He was not only the founder and greatest exponent of a new medical discipline, but he was also an excellent general clinician, epidemiologist, sanitarian, and poet. He wrote on the water supply of Modena, cattle plague, personal hygiene, and on the use of cinchona bark.Occasional references had been made to occupational diseases in general medical works since the time of Hippocrates. Paracelsus had been concerned with diseases of miners. Ramazzini methodically collected all that had been written before him on the subject and set to investigate the diseases of artisans, their causes, and the relations that existed between the disease and the occupation. In a series of masterly observations, still worthy of being read with interest and profit, he recognizes the harmful effects of metals used in various techniques, noting the damage produced by mercury in surgeons using mercurial inunctions, in chemists and pharmacists who prepared the remedies, and in gilders. He describes various disorders that attack painters due to lead poisoning. He speaks authoritatively of the diseases of tinners and of coloured-glass workers who handle antimony. He points out that disorders can result from the strain of unusual physical demands or postures, such as those required of tailors. Among his more astute observations are his accounts of the "phthisis" acquired by stone-workers and miners (silicosis and pneumoconiosis).There are even chapters devoted to the diseases of monks, nuns, capitalists, etc. and also of writers and "learned men" who by spending their time mostly indoors, sitting still and trying eyes, contracted serious diseases. This latter is further discussed by Linnaeus in his dissertation, Morbi artificum (1765).Ramazzini was the first to recognize the social significance of occupational diseases and his book appeared at a most opportune time, since, with the beginning of industrial development in the eighteenth Century, prevention of accidents from machinery and the general health of workers became increasingly important. Few classical works in medicine equal Ramazzini's book in the pleasure it gives to read today."The Italian joumal of social hygiene, published since 1907, is entitled 'II Ramazzini'.Garrison-Morton 2121 (1st.

He was the earliest teacher of the subject in the British Isles. The above includes important work on the artificial pupil." Garrison & Morton"Guthrie's lectures on ocular operations are perhaps not quite complete (the operation on the lacrimal system are lacking), but nevertheless they represent a superb contribution, the first such book in English it is the second one in the world literature after the surgical course by G. Pellier de Quengsy, 1789-1790. Guthrie is more objective that his predecessor, but his follower Christian Jüngken of Berlin (1829) surpasses him in the systematic approach. The reviewer in the Edinburgh Medical and Surgical Journal (No.94, page 120, 1828) praises Guthrie's book without reservations: "Guthrie's work is doubtless the most comprehensive treatise at present extant ... Mr. Guthrie has not confined himself to the results of mere personal experience. He has evidently bestowed great pains in studying the works of the foreign ophthalmological writers, and he has exercised in general a just and liberal spirit of remark on the merits of their respective methods of treatment." Guthrie's younger contemporary and countryman Middlemore also lauds this book .... There is no other book in English which offers such a complete and masterful survey on the cataract operation and the new formation of a pupil"." Hirschberg, Hist. Ophthal.

      London, 1823-1866, 1823. Brewers Manuscript Receipts Books. Six "collecting books" containing original manuscript receipts of Taylor, Walker & Co. Brewery in Limehouse, each with a dated impressed revenue stamp made at a London Stamping Office, and mounted sequentially four to a leaf, recto and verso, the lot concerning the account of one client, a James Wood of Wapping and his wife Elizabeth. 8vo. Red leather wrappers, four of which are titled in manuscript to front and two bearing the firm's name in gilt to front. Together with a manuscript true copy of the Statement of Accounts Settlement for Messrs E. Finlay, owner of the Scotch Arms pub on Hermitage Street" in Wapping, dated 13 November 1823. 8vo. Double leaf. Age-toning, creased edges from the account collector's frequent use, otherwise in very good condition, a rare breweriana collection of documents. Spanning over forty years and together containing some 500 revenue stamped receipts, the present six volumes record beer purchases and cash payments received, made by one longstanding client of prominent London brewers Taylor, Walker & Co. situated in Limehouse, London. The firm produced and served its popular beer for well over 200 years when it was taken over by Ind Coope of Burton in 1959, which merged with Ansells of Birmingham and Tetley Walker of Leeds, to form Allied Breweries in 1961. A side note of interest, Charles Dickens would have been quite familiar with the Taylor & Walker brewhouse, as he frequented the Limehouse district from 1820 to circa 1860 - congruent to the time frame of the present volumes, to visit his godfather Christopher Huffam who had a sailmaking business just a few doors down at 12 Church Row..
