Bradley & Co's Whips from their Manufactory, Hull, Makers to the Emperor & Imperial Family of all the Russias, and on the other side a map of the County, forty miles round Hull by Richard Johnson, Hull + 2 Engravings, on modern paper, taken from this copper printing plate.In pure etching, a metal (usually copper, zinc or steel) plate is covered with a waxy ground which is resistant to acid. The artist then scratches off the ground with a pointed etching needle where he wants a line to appear in the finished piece, so exposing the bare metal. A tool with a slanted oval section is also used for swelling lines. The acid bites into the metal, where it is exposed, leaving behind lines sunk into the plate. The remaining ground is then cleaned off the plate. The plate is inked all over, and then the ink wiped off the surface, leaving only the ink in the etched lines. The plate is then put through a high-pressure printing press together with a sheet of paper, often moistened to soften it. The paper picks up the ink from the etched lines, making a print. The process can be repeated many times; typically several hundred impressions (copies) could be printed before the plate shows much sign of wear. The work on the plate can also be added to by repeating the whole process; this creates an etching which exists in more than one state. A very rare item....

The fame of the water-cure treatment grew, clinics were opened at Malvern and other places. Famous patients included Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Thomas Carlyle, Florence Nightingale, Lord Tennyson and Samuel Wilberforce. With the fame also attracted criticism: Sir Charles Hastings, a physician and founder of the British Medical Association, was a forthright critic of hydropathy. Patients at Malvern were woken at 5 am, undressed and wrapped in wet sheets then covered with blankets. An hour later, buckets of water were thrown upon the patients who then went on a five mile walk, carrying an alpenstock and a Gräfenberg flask of mineral water, stopping at wells for the waters. They returned to the Malvern pump room for a breakfast of dry biscuits and water. They then had the day to spend bathing in a range of kinds of baths, or in some cases wore a wet sheet called the "Neptune Girdle" round their middle at all times, removing it only at meal times. Dinner which was always boiled mutton and fish was followed by a few hours in a dry bed. The exercise, plain food and absence of alcohol together with the congenial company of other wealthy patrons proved generally beneficial. £150.00

( Antique Mezzotint Satirical Print).

Date. 1769.

Published according to the Act in 1769 by John Bowles in No. 13 in Cornhill. Image size [4 1/2 x 6ins.] Original mezzotint engraved print by Dixon ad Vivum del. et fecit.

On a London street, a young man in foppish dress grins as he peers through a spyglass directly out of the picture. From the right and slightly behind him, a bailiff with writ in hand reaches to seize the fop's arm. Behind the gentleman the street recedes, fronted by a large building on the far side. A pub sign hangs from a near building far left and a sedan chair rests in middle of the street nearby. The verse below reads:Sir Fopling Flutter through his glass inspects the Ladies as they pass// Yet still the coxcomb lacks the wit to guard against the Bailiff's Writ. London mezzotint print satires or drolls flourished between 1760 and 1800. Ref - Yale Center for British Art. £80.00

Ursula Southeil (c. 1488 - 1561) (possibly Ursula Sonthiel), better known as Mother Shipton, was an English soothsayer and prophetess who is said to have made dozens of unusually accurate predictions, including the Great Plague of London, the Spanish Armada, and the Great Fire of London.

Prophecies of Robert Nixon, relate to the family living at Vale Royal Abbey mansion at the time of the 1714 and 1745 Jacobite rebellions. It seems the prophecies of Robert Nixon were invented or modified to suit the political situation at the time. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .
