adventurous, with notable attractions presented to the public such

as the sword swallower, Ramo Samee, in 1822. In the following

year a shadow pantomime, invented by a carpenter in the gardens,

was a great success, and nearly 140,000 visitors produced receipts

of £29,590. In 1825 Madame Vestris was the hit of the season with

her rendering of ‘Cherry Ripe’, and Gye raised the normal price of

2s. to a gala price of 4s. to take advantage of the demand. In 1827

and 1828, responding to competition from Astley’s Amphitheatre,

Gye recreated the battle of Waterloo, with horses, foot soldiers,

and vivid pyrotechnics. The composer Henry Rowley Bishop was

employed as musical director from 1830 to 1833. In this period too

Gye invented and introduced some ingenious optical illusions... .”

*** on J o i n i n G u p in 1916; “... there has been an awful row at

home, & both father and mother have turned against me, because

I simply can’t fall in with their wishes about what I am going to

do now that the exam is cancelled. I simply can’t stand the awful

tension at home, after being so happy there all these years, and, as

you may guess, there is only one way out of it - to enlist. Besides,

Dorothy, if you knew the pangs that have smitten Collinson & I,

when we have seen those brave fellows entraining at Charing Cross

Station you would wonder why I had not gone before. I know I am

not yet of military age, but my consciene won’t let me rest - I feel

as if I ought to do something.” - F.C. Hobden.

Although Hobden survived the war, the experience seems to

have taken its toll on him physically. “31 Tues [September 1920]

Charley asleep until 20 to 6 - looks bad does not speak - give him

few drinks, tries to eat nectarine. Give him last kiss. Charley dies at

10.20.” - Dorothy Allen.

*** Vi l l a G E s a n i tat i o n in in d i a.

A variant of Bishop & Goldie 85, appearing to be a duplicate of our

copy, however the title is not the same being addressed also to the

Joint Secretaries of the Poona Sarvajanik Sabha.

“This letter was written on the advice of Sir William Wedderburn,

as Miss Nightingale explained, because of her interest in the Bill

then under consideration ‘To Make better Provision for Village

Conservancy in the Bombay Presidency’. Miss Nightingale

suggested that what was wanted was an Act, as in England, enabling

the people to organize themselves, under proper supervision, for

sanitary purposes, and she looked forward to the day when the

native peoples would be able to manage their own affairs. ‘As yet

the higher offices are Europeans but the time will come, we hope,

when these duties will be performed by trained Indian sanitarians.’”

- Bishop & Goldie.

❦ Art & Architecture

Selected book and manuscripts from the reference library of George Jackson & Sons Ltd.

With a heritage that can be traced back to the late 18th century, George Jackson & Sons have for over 200 years been recognised as one

of the world’s leading suppliers of composition mouldings and fibrous plasterwork for architectural decoration, which has earned them

four royal warrants. Today George Jackson & Sons hold an archive of over 11000 boxwood moulds used for decorative composition and

traditional plaster moulds, some dating back to the age of Robert Adam.

From their original business premises near Oxford Circus, and later Hammersmith, the company provided ornamental mouldings for the

Brighton Pavilion, and in 1838 George Jackson manufactured a temporary wood-grain panelled enclosure for marshalling the guests at

Queen Victoria’s coronation at Westminster Abbey. Amongst the company’s other high profile commissions were exhibits at the 1851

Great Exhibition; the models, plaster casts and gilding for the Duke of Wellington’s funeral carriage; a commission from Queen Victoria

for the State Banqueting Hall at Osborne House, and the interiors of ocean going ships. More recent commissions have included the

restoration work following fire damage at Hampton Court in 1994.

The following 92 lots (514-605 ) contain the inscription of Geo.Jackson & Sons on front pastedowns and are numbered on the spines

with tape. Internally there is some soiling and staining, with repairs to some leaves; some volumes have been

handsomely rebound, the remainder are generally in poor condition.
