18 Hackert (Jacob Philip) [Engraved by Giovanni de Grado]. Veduta del Porto di Reggio di Calabria. Preso dal Quadro originale che fa parte della Collezione dei Porti delle due Sicilie ordinata da S. M. il Re.
Naples, George Hackert, [c.1790]. 
An engraving on laid paper. Image size is 54.5cm x 37cm, on a sheet measuring 59cm x 44cm. In lower right: "No. 3". Beneath image on the left side: "Ph. Hackert pinx:". Beneath the image on the right: "Gio de Grado sculp. / G Hackert direxit". Short tears to margins, longer closed tear at upper right (hardly visible), evidence of some ancient light staining to right side, very good condition, trimmed to the plate mark. One of a series of engravings of Ports of the Two Sicilies, engraved by Giovanni de Grado from paintings by Jacob Philip Hackert. Others in the set include (Veduta del Porto di Barletta - No. 1) and (Veduta del Porto di Taranto - No.2), both in the collection of the Rijksmuseum, and visible on their site. This set is distinct from that engraved by Georg Abraham Hackert, also of Ports of the Two Sicilies ("Collezione dei Porti delle due Sicilie") - 5 views, published in Naples [c.1790 - 1800]. Both sets include the same text in the lower margin: ("Preso dal Quadro originale che sa parte della Collezione dei Porti delle due Sicilie ordinata da S.M. il Re"). The set engraved by Hackert was somewhat larger in format, by about 6 inches in both height and breadth. All these engravings are scarce in the marketplace.

19 Landseer (Thomas) A Race! A Race!

[London]: Published 1825 by Moon, Boys and Graves, 64 Pall Mall. A print, measuring 19.75mm X 16mm. Mounted on a heavy card stock, which measures 25mm X 21mm. Some yellowing of print, but very good. The backing board has a thick residue of yellowed glue all around the edges, likely leftover from when it was mounted in a frame. Accompanied by some very brittle and yellowed glassine. The print is marked "Proof" in the lower left corner. This edition somewhat at variance with that described by the British Museum. Their copy bears a publication date of 1828, and gives the publisher's address as "6 Pall Mall". Also the script in which the title and accompanying rhyme are written is in an entirely different hand, with some letters capitalized on their copy, which are in lower case on this copy. Since Moon, Boys and Graves acquired the stock of Hurst, Robinson after their bankruptcy in 1825, it is not unrealistic to presume that this print was created by Hurst, Robinson, but not issued under their imprint. A satirical illustration by Landseer, depicting two monkeys riding an ass and racing with another monkey on horseback, all three in human clothing. A rare image, not included in Landseer's MONKEYANA, which was published by Moon, Boys & Graves in 1827-28.
