Description:
March to May, 1837. About 2800 words on 8 pp. 12 x 8 inches, horizontal folds. Provenance: Strides Auctions, Chichester, 2005. From letters we have located, we have identified the writer as Lieutenant William Robinson, setting out for South America to take up appointments in HMS Fly and HMS Stag (see O’Byrne, A Naval Biographical Dictionary). Robinson later commanded the Arrow ketch in South America and at the Cape, where he captured an armed slaver. Offered with this account is a letter by Wm. Robinson to his wife (1864) with advice on how to claim a pension in the event of Robinson’s demise, and some extracts from certificates of service of a later William C.Robinson, Assistant Paymaster, 1863-79.

Undated. In French. 3 x 4 inches, in good condition. Found among the correspondence received by Edward Arnold, the publsher. General Georges Ernest Jean Marie Boulanger (1837-91) served in Italy, China, the Franco-Prussian War, and against the Commune. He commanded the army of occupation in Tunis (1884-85). He was Minister of War 1886-87, but was arrested for disobeying orders. Boulanger was called the ‘Man on Horseback’ because he often appeared mounted before the Paris crowds. His radical reforms, known as Boulangism and supported by leading Bonapartist and anti-German conspirators for their own ends, eventually rebounded on him. The government prosecuted Boulanger, who fled to Brussels and later shot himself.

Description:
Undated. 2 x 8 inches, in good condition. Uncommon. Edward Cowper (1790–1852) was an English printing engineer, inventor, and academic. Cowper was the improver of the steam printing machine, projected by William Nicholson and implemented by Friedrich Koenig. In 1816, when he described himself as an ironmonger and mechanist of Newington Butts, Cowper obtained a patent (No. 3974) for "a method of printing paper for paper-hangings and other purposes", with curved stereotype plates fixed on cylinders for printing long rolls of paper. In 1818, styling himself as a printer, he patented (No. 4194) certain improvements in printing, which consisted of a method for a better distribution of the ink, and an improved manner of conveying the sheets from one cylinder to another. This was the origin of the "perfecting machine" which printed on both sides of the paper at once.
