In the middle of the 19th century his prints for The Art Union gave him a considerable reputation, along with Knight’s Shakespeare and other standard books. On the death of Herbert Ingram in 1860 he was appointed art editor of the Illustrated London News, a post he held for thirty years. He wrote a history of the rise and progress of illustrated journalism.

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.

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.

Undated, mostly 1850s. From papers retained by the James family. 6 different Circulars and Patent announcements, with a collection of offprints, folds, minor blemishes only, generally in good condition. William Henry James (1796–1873) assisted his father in his survey of the Liverpool and Manchester railway. He subsequently commenced business as an engineer in Birmingham, where he made experiments upon steam locomotion on common roads. He took out patents for locomotives, steam-engines, boilers, railway carriages, diving apparatus, &c., and he is commonly stated to have anticipated Stephenson in the application of the tubular boiler to locomotives, but this is an error, James's boiler being what is known as a ‘water-tube’ boiler. This interesting group comprises: A New Practical Telegraph; Certain Improvements in Steam Engines (2); A New System of Transit for Passengers and Goods; Improvements in Heating and Refrigerating; Universal Peace throughout the World ...a New Peace-inducing S ...

Captain Chandos Scudamore Stanhope (1823-1871), Royal Navy, received a Royal Humane Society Silver Medal in 1851 for a life-saving rescue of a seaman. Soon after his death a group of his friends formed a memorial in his honour and raised a large sum of money, to provide a fund for the award of the gold “Stanhope Medal”, to be awarded by the Royal Humane Society for gallantry. Stanhope served on the HMS Warspite 50-gun ship with captains Sir John Hay and Sir Provo William Parry Wallis. These ships served the North America, West Indies, and Mediterranean ports. He was appointed in December 1846 to the HMS Queen 110-gun ship of Sir John West at Devonport. Stanhope later served from August 1847 in the Pacific on the HMS Asia 84-gun ship commanded by Rear-Admiral Phipps Hornby.[4] Stanhope became a Captain in October 1858.
