1 February 1831. Card 3 x 4½ inches, some light dust soiling, red wax seal (‘M’). George Macfarren (1788–1843), playwright and theatre manager. In February 1831 Macfarren took over the management of the theatre in Tottenham Street, which he called the Queen's Theatre, in honour of Queen Adelaide, and here he remained until July of the following year, producing, among numerous other works, The Danish Wife (1831) and a dramatic version of Handel's Acis and Galatea, for which Cipriani Potter wrote additional accompaniments. Macfarren seems to have laid particular stress on accuracy of detail and naturalness in staging the plays which he produced. Macfarren was the first to suggest the formation of the Handel Society. In 1841 he became editor and proprietor of the Musical World.

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.
