Description:
London, 27 July 1827. 1 page 9 x 7 inches, in good condition, some light toning, integral address leaf. John Jackson RA (born in Lastingham 1778 – 1831), English painter who specialised in portraits. By 1807 Jackson's reputation as a portrait painter was assured, and he made the transition to oils steadily, if not easily, regularly forwarding paintings to Somerset House. After a visit to the Netherlands and Flanders with Edmund Phipps in 1816, he accompanied Sir Francis Chantrey on a trip to Switzerland, Rome, Florence and Venice in 1819. In Rome he was elected to the Academy of St Luke. His portrait of Antonio Canova, painted on this trip, was regarded as outstanding. Jackson was a prolific portraitist, strongly showing the influence of Sir Thomas Lawrence and Henry Raeburn in his work. His sitters included the Duke of Wellington, the explorer Sir John Franklin and some noted Wesleyan ministers.

Description:
Paris, 27 May 1867. In French. 3 pp. 10 x 8 inches, two clean tears neatly repaired, slight toning but generally good. Moritz Hermann (Boris Semyonovich) von Jacobi (1801 – 1874), Russo-German engineer and physicist born in Potsdam. Jacobi worked mainly in Russia. He furthered progress in galvanoplastics, electric motors, and wire telegraphy. He developed the maximum power theorem known as Jacobi’s Law. In 1838, he discovered galvanoplastics, or electrotyping, a method of making printing plates by electroplating. The stereotype was an impression taken from a form of movable lead type and used for printing instead of the original type. This technique is used in relief printing. He also worked on the development of the electric telegraph. In 1842-1845 he built a telegraph line between Saint Petersburg and Tsarskoe Selo using an underground cable. In 1867 he was a Russian delegate to the Commission on measurement units at the Paris World's Fair. He was a strong proponent of the metric system.
